To use the mix:

In a medium pot, combine 1/3 C of the mix with 1 C of water. Cook over low - medium heat until it thickens. 


Add 1/2 cup of minced anything you want!

  1. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

  2. As a celiac, I am overjoyed to find this recipe! As a frugal cook, more joy! As a CC-er, exultant! Thank you.

  3. am so glad you both like the recipe! Let me know how it works for you, if you made changes, what you used it in, etc. :D

  4. Could rice flour be substituted for the cornstarch? I am trying to avoid the use of cornstarch.

  5. can you try Wondra flour? It makes a good thickener. I've not tried it in this recipe, but it makes sense to use it. I'll spread your question out and about and see what people say!

  6. Cannot find the nutrition info for this mix on Calorie Count. Can someone tell me what it is?
