  • 4 tablespoons butter -OR- 3 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons Gluten-Free Flour Blend -OR- 2 tablespoons rice flour + 2 tablespoons tapioca flour


  • In a medium-sized, heavy duty saucepan, heat the butter over medium-low heat until melted (or warm the oil).
  • Add the gluten-free flour and whisk until smooth. Over medium heat, cook until the mixture turns a light, golden sandy color (blond roux), about 6 to 7 minutes.
  • If desired, reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the mixture turns the color of peanut butter, roughly 4-6 minutes more.
