Gluten Free Roux
I love to cook and one of the things I love to cook is the Barefoot Contessa's Truffle Mac & Cheese. If you haven't tried it is a must. (And a secret if you can't find truffle butter, truffle oil works just as well). In the recipe you need to start the sauce with a roux. Normally this is flour and butter, but I was thinking how on earth am I going to make a gluten free roux. At first I thought maybe just cornstarch and butter, but that would be too chalky. I searched on line and came across a roux recipe that is gluten free. Still has butter but instead of wheat flour, it combines cornstarch and rice flour. So tonight I am going to test it out with regular mac & cheese (Quinoa mac is being used). Wish me luck.
