We all know that just about every yummy recipe in the world calls for flour. It’s a shame that people living gluten free can’t just go to the store and pick up any old flour; but that’s just not how a gluten free diet works!

Here is a great gluten free mix flour replacement to use as a substitute in any recipe calling for flour:

  • 1 c. tapioca flour
  • 2 c. potato starch or potato flour
  • 6 c. white or brown rice flour

Combine ingredients and mix thoroughly. This can be used in recipes that call for flour.

Note: If you have never mixed flours, be sure there are no streaks or clumps of the individual flours. When you’re finished it should appear to be only one kind of flour.

Another ingredient you’ll often find in recipes is cream of soup. Of course, most of the store-bought varieties are not gluten free and are loaded with sodium. Here’s a simple gluten free mix cream of soup replacement to add to your gluten free arsenal:

  • 1 tsp chicken flavored bouillon
  • 2 T cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 T butter

1. Whisk cornstarch and milk in a small saucepan until blended.
2. Add salt, pepper and butter.
3. Bring to a boil, stirring often.

This makes a great replacement for any cream of “something” soup. To make the actual soup rather than using the base in another recipe, simply add one cup of water.

To make a replacement for condensed cream of mushroom soup, make the base recipe and add 1/4 cup chopped, canned mushrooms. To make a substitute for condensed cream of celery soup, add 1/4 cup chopped and sauteed celery to the base recipe. To make a condensed cream of chicken soup replacement, add 1/4 cup cooked, cubed chicken to the base mix.

I hope these gluten free mixes make your gluten free cooking a little easier!
