I just had a cutastrufy in my kitchen. My roux carmalized on me and stuck to eveything. Does anyone know what kind of flour I should use to make a roux? Any help is appreciated!

I would try potato or corn.

What did you use?

Do you have any flour mixes? Those generally work better than any one flour by itself. Although if it carmelized, it sounds like it cooked too long/fast. Have you made a roux before with "normal" flour? If not, it does take patience (which is why I don't make them very often :D ) Also, when you have the time (meaning you don't need an emergency fix) I would get some flour from Tom Sawyer-I have found it to be a pretty good cup for cup replacement for white wheat flour in many recipes-especially sauces, rouxes and gravies.

Depending on what you are making it for, there are other options that don't require flour (I'm thinking of a wine reduction or white sauce).

Not much help I'm afraid, but I will wish you luck-both in making roux and getting the carmelized one out of the pan :unsure:

Unfortunatley I am very new gluten free cooking and I have never made a roux before. I also do not have my flours labled very well. I accidently used tapioca starch. I'm not fond of the taste of potato flour, but I never thought about corn. Where can I get that Tom Sawyer flour? Or do you know of any flour combos I could use. Thank you so much for both of your advices!

White rice or sweet rice flour work great for making a roux.

Tom Sawyer flour is at: glutenfreeflour.com

A true, good roux isn't easy regardless of the flour-so don't give up! Just try a lower heat and stir constantly. If you don't like the taste of potato starch try either corn starch only or a mixture of equal parts corn starch and potato starch. If that doesn't work PM me and let me know what flours you do have and I'll look and see if any of the flour mixture recipes I have fits what you already have.

I was curious how many different roux recipes there are out there (since mine is rattling around in my head) so I googled it. And I found this one that I am now excited to try as it is done in the microwave, so it will require much less patience on my part :D (always a plus with my personality). Anyway, I would assume that it is harder to burn also.

Microwave Cajun Roux Recipe

Louisiana Cajun Gravy used as a base for Seafood, Chicken, Sausage, or the kitchen chair (shaved, joke) served over rice.

by George Montero

10 servings

15 min 3 min prep

2/3 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 medium onion (Chopped)

1 medium green bell pepper (chopped)

2 stalks celery (chopped)

1 bunch green onions (chopped, tops only)

4 cloves garlic (chopped)

Mix flour and oil together in a 4 cup GLASS measuring bowl with a whisk until smooth.

Important to whisk smooth before putting in the microwave oven.

Cook on HIGH power (100%) 7 minutes, stir and whisk at 4 minutes and again every 30 seconds until you achieve a dark caramel color.

Don't burn the roux!

Please be careful the glass bowl will be extremely HOT.

Carefully add the onions, bell pepper, and celery to the hot roux.

It will sizzle and the aroma will be fantastic.

Mix well and cook 3 minutes on HIGH.

Add the green onions and garlic to the glass bowl.

Cook 2 more minutes on HIGH.

Additional notes:If you have ever made roux the conventional way, you know it must be watched constantly or it will burn.

The first step, oil/flour cook on high 7 minutes, when your timer shows 4 minutes remove the glass bowl from the microwave and stir/whisk.

Put the bowl back in the oven and continue to cook, however, take the bowl out every 30 seconds and stir/whisk as the roux begins to thicken.

When the roux is medium to dark caramel color I like to take the bowl out of the oven and stir/whisk, the roux will continue to darken and you will have less chance of burning your roux.

Depending on the powers (watts) of your microwave oven (700 to 1000 watts) the roux could start to thicken and brown at 5- 9 minutes.

Attempt to get the color you like, Med, Dark Med, or Dark.

The next 2 stages (3 minutes for the tough vegetables, then 2 more minutes for the tender vegetables).

You really don't have to stir while the vegetables saute, however, you do stir when you first add them to the roux then forget it!

Congratulations!

You have now made authenic Cajun Roux in your microwave Oven.

I use Bob's Red Mill All Purpose gluten-free Flour. It works perfectly. Use it in the same measurements you did regular flour. I make all sorts of gravy and even bechamel / cheese sauces with it for mac and cheese and to go over veggies.

I just bought "Cajun and Southern Gluten-Free Delights" by Aileen M. Bennett. They live in south Mississippi and this cookbook looks like it has several good recipes. For the shrimp gumbo recipe, she uses 1/2 cup brown rice flour and 1/4 to 1/2 cup oil. Her chicken gumbo recipe calls for 5 Tablespoons brown rice flour, 1 Tablespoon cornstarch and 5 to 6 Tablespoons oil. I'm going to make some gumbo this weekend and will let you know how the roux turned out.

I usually use plain rice flour, or a mixture of 1/2 rice and 1/2 corn starch or tapioca flour. Either seems to work just fine, in fact I think it thickens up faster than a flour-based roux.

A roux with 3 tbsp rice flour, 3 tbsp cream cheese and 1 3/4 cups milk seasoned with salt and some mushroom chuncks makes a reasonable substitute for condensed cream of mushroom soup, too. You can't melt the cream cheese like you would butter, so I just warm it up a little and throw everything but the mushrooms in and stir till thick, then add the mushrooms. :)

    • Hi Allie and welcome First off, I know 3 years was a long wait, but at 17 you've figured out celiac way before many people do. That should make a big impact on minimising its effects and helping you with the diet, so, bizarrely enough, congratulations!   A lot of good advice has been brought together in this thread:  Don't worry that your symptoms are bad now. As you follow the diet your body will begin healing itself and you're still very young so hopefully this will go really smoothly. Think in terms of the next 6 months rather than weeks however, recovery will likely take a little time. Eat as healthily as you can, lots of whole foods and try to avoid the gluten free processed substitutes as your digestive system needs all the help it can get at this moment.  You may want to avoid dairy as well for now and think about reintroducing it later. This site has been really helpful to me and others. I hope you find it just as useful. Best of luck!   ps, your increased reaction to gluten during the challenge phase was perfectly normal. Many find that reintroducing it much worse than the initial affects and take some time to get over the challenge. That's why you'll see lots of posts here urging folks to 'stay on gluten' till their testing is complete!
    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.
