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.


  1. GOOD LUCK, Kitchen Diva! Beautiful, beautiful table!

  2. Good luck, I'm very curious how it turns out!
