Gluten-Free Flour Blend
Nutrition Highlights: Wheat free and gluten free
Parents of kids with food allergies carry a special burden. Even schools are becoming more alert to food allergy issues and are learning to change lunch room and classroom snack policies, and parents of kids without allergies are paying attention to what they serve a group of children. Even so, many kids are reluctant to stand out from the crowd and say, "I can't eat that," when everyone around them is digging in, making Mom and Dad the watchdogs. Many readers have told me that they feel like they're constantly on high-alert because so much is at stake. With all of this going on, I felt compelled to develop a delicious gluten-free flour blend and to use it in kids favorite recipes.
- 2 cups rice flour (ideally "brown rice flour")
- 2/3 cup potato starch (not "potato flour")
- 1/3 cup tapioca flour (or tapioca starch)
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
> Combine all ingredients in a bowl. This blend can be stored in a sealed, labeled plastic bag in the refrigerator for months.
> Note: most of the gluten-free ingredients in this chapter can be found at Whole Foods Market.
