    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Soy Flour Substitution?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement for soy flour? I try to stay away from soy products, and the gluten-free recipe for pierogi dough that I found calls for 1/4 cup of soy flour in addition to larger amounts of potato starch and tapioca flour. I imagine this is to help it be more elastic. Does anyone know of another flour that has similar properties? THank you!

I usually avoid all recipes that call for soy flour but I do substitute white rice flour for dry milk without any problems. Not sure that will help you but I don't use any bean flours at all.

I make Pelmini, which is basically the same as Pierogi. I use brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca starch and xanthan gum. It always turns out great. If you do a search for "pelmini" on here, my recipe for the dough will come up.

Hi, I'm new here, but couldn't resist answering a Russian food question. I make homemade pelmini quite often. The dough is pretty much the same as for pierogy. My youngest son is adopted from Russia and he loves it - doesn't even know it's gluten free. It's really easy and rolls out just like regular dough.For a large batch:1-1/4 C Brown Rice Flour1/2 C Potato Starch1/4 C Tapioca Flourgenerous 2-1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum1 Tbs. oil1/2 tsp. salt1/4+ C WaterSift dry ingredients 3 times. Add oil and water. You will probably need to add a little more water, but do it slowly. Stir until dough forms a ball. Make sure it is not dry! It should be smooth and almost creamy. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll out on board dusted with Tapioca flour.

Thanks for the recipe and the suggestions, folks.

I'm definitely going to buy a dough press, which I will use for making the pierogies and also other dumplings in the future.

I'll give it a shot with brown rice flour instead of soy flour, and let you know how it goes

Good luck! We just had Pelmini for dinner last night. I was out of br. rice flour and used white and it turned out okay, but the br. rice flour works better.
