My daughter wants some of my Alfredo Sauce tonight which typically starts with making a roux from melting a bunch of butter and adding flour. What can I use instead of flour? I plan to put the sauce on some steamed cauliflower for myself.
arrowroot starch (flour). it's not a grain. i use it as a thickener for sauces, soups and several other recipes.
I've always (pre-Paleo) made Alfredo sauce with just heavy cream reduced X 2/3 or so, plus grated parmegiano-reggiano and s+p. A little grating of nutmeg is nice too. I'm not on dairy so none for me at the moment, maybe in a few months...
I make some chicken alfredo (recipe by Robb Wolfe) last night; it was GOOD! used cashews ground up in a blender with other spices and the liquid from cooking the chicken and kelp noodles. I probably would add a bit more water to it for future, but it was amazingly tasty!
My recipe for alfredo sauce is just butter and cream, heated, melt in a goodly amount of parmesan, add a touch of fresh ground nutmeg and a similar amount of fresh ground pepper. Done. And Delicious.
Arrowroot is the rhizome (tuber) root of the arrowroot plant. The tuber contains about 23% starch which is extracted and sold as a powder. when buying ensure it is not mixed with potato starch as it is often mixed and sold with it. Read the ingredients list carefully.
Hi. I know some people use other kinds of flour, like rice flour etc., or something I have tried is simply letting everything reduce down and then adding sour cream or (regular) cream just before serving. Arrowroot powder is something else I have heard that people use.
