Gluten Free Playdough In The Thermomix
0

2 posts in this topic

Hi, I would like to share a playdough recipe which I have been making with really consistent success. I adapted it from a recipe I found here and the thermomix recipe book version.

I am pretty sure this could be adapted for most of the cooking/stirring machines out there.

 

Here goes:

 

Ingredients:

1 cup salt (280g)

1 cup gluten-free cornflour/cornstarch (150g)

1 cup rice four (150g) - you can mill this yourself but I hate the noise so I usually just use premilled

2 cups (500g) water

1 tbsp cream of tartar

2 tsp oil eg olive, grapeseed

Another cup each of cornstarch and rice flour to add later

 

Method:

 

Mill salt on 9 for 30 seconds

Add water and cream of tartar and heat at 60 degrees C for 5 minutes speed 3

Add 1cup each of rice and cornflour(starch) and mix on speed 5 at 60 degrees C for about 2 minutes - the mix should be just starting to get a bit thick and gloopy, but definitely not as thick as usual playdough

Add the 2 tsp oil (I always forget to do this!!!) and mix again, no heat.

At this point I usually transfer it to a covered bowl to cool, but if you don't need to use your thermomix for a few hours, just cover it and let it cool to room temperature, then add 2/3 cup of rice flour and 2/3 cup corn starch and mix again on about speed 5

If you have taken it out and put it in a bowl you can do this by hand and knead the flour in. This is fun for a little helper to do.

It is really important to let the mix cool down as if you add the extra flour too soon it turns out crumbly.

 

You will now have approx 1L of amazing, smooth, soft gluten-free playdough that last for ages if you keep it in an airtight container. No need to refrigerate it

 

To colour: either add the colour in the first step, or once the dough is complete, divide into smaller balls and knead the colour through, or just return each ball to thermie to evenly mix the colour through.

 

I have made this several times now and it is really the best recipe I have found. There is no locally available gluten-free playdough where I live so it is great to be able to make it for my daughter's preschool class in bulk.

 

I no longer get the feeling of dread I used to when making playdough, wondering if it would sticky or crumbly. 

 

 

Hope this will be helpful for some other parent/grandparents/teachers of kids with celiac/coeliac.

I have a much easier updated recipe. This is for a bulk amount of playdough, eg. if you are providing for a preschool class for everyone to share.

 

In a food processor mill 1 cup cheapest cooking salt until it is very fine. Add 500g rice flour, 300g cornstarch, 6 teaspoons cream of tartar and blend until nicely combined. Tip out into large pot (I use an 8L stock pot) - doesn't need to be on the stove. You don't cook this mixture!

 

Measure out 3 cups (750ml) boiling water and add 2 teaspoons of oil and a big squirt of food colouring. 

pour boiling water mix into pot and mix mix mix. 

 

It will come together quite quickly and once it really thickens you can start to knead it in the pot. It will be pretty hot still but I like the warmth on my hands. Knead for a bit until it is mixed smoothly and all the flour is incorporated. cover pot with some plastic wrap and the lid and once it cools down you will have a mega preschool class sized playdough batch that has taken about 5 minutes to make.

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
