Rice Replacement

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

How about tapioca, sorghum, corn, buckwheat, amaranth, arrowroot, coconut, and quinoa? You might have to experiment a bit to get the right combo for the recipe.

BTW - Chebe bread mix is rice and nut free.

I second the Chebe. It's all tapioca and lovely lovely bread. In terms of a replacement for rice, I would think teff or millet would be the closest match to white rice flower. Quinona would be another good choice.

Hi,

We can't use rice and it seems to be in many many of the receipes I am seeing. What would you use to replace it? We also need to avoid all nut and bean flours.

Thanks,

I am not crazy about rice flour so I mainly use the sorghum mix

1 1/2 cups sorghum

1 1/2 cups potato starch or corn starch

1 cup tapioca flour

I use the same mix as Purple uses. :) My daughter was intolerant to rice for a few years. I made a lot of quinoa as a replacement. It is awesome cooked with some broth and sauteed veggies.

As for pasta you can buy corn and quinoa. Walmart has corn spaghetti and its good. Here is a good bread recipe w/o those flours you can't have. Its really good and easy. I make it every week.

quinoi or teff work well, but usually in combination with something like sorghum or tapioca or potato. they have really good protein and micronutrient content--much better than rice, actually. white bean flour is nice. (I find the garbonzo or fava flours taste is too strong). if you try coconut flour-do NOT use more than 5- 10% of total flour in your recipe. it is way high in fiber and will dry it out/soak up all the moisture and will taste gross!!

Thanks for all the replies,

I tried a Chebe mix and it was very chewy don't know what I did wrong. Thanks for the advice on which flours work well together - I hadn't heard of coconut before that sounds yummy. I think I will try quinoa next.

Thanks again!

Ask for advice before subbing coconut for anything, it behaves very differently than the other flours. You can sub sorghum flour one for one with rice.
