    Thanks Alaska, this sounds great. I have tapioca flour, but out of rice flour have to order some more.

    I would have never guessed the Knox powder, i wonder if that's what helps hold it together.

    That's my biggest complaint about the rice flour, everything falls apart, guess that's what the gluten's for.

    I bought some rice flour tortillas to try, and they taste great, but as soon as you try to roll something up in them, they come apart,
    soooo frusterating!!

    I have two gluten free, and dairy free soups i've been making for myself, anyone interested??

    Thanks again,

    I love soup but my hubby gets tired of it, but i came up with these two by modifying some recipes, they are just single serving, and quick if you have everything on hand, i use them for my lunch, when kids are in school, and hubby gone.

    They might not be for everyone, but i love them!!


    About (i don't measure when i cook)
    1Tbs of olive oil in frying pan
    Abit of garlic
    6 thin slices off a piece of crystalized ginger
    8 to 10 frozen precooked shrimp already thawed
    (i just stick them in a bowl of water to thaw about 1/2 hour before)
    Saute about 3 minutes, then i add about a cup of fresh broccoli, could also use snow peas i think too, would be good in place of broccoli.
    Saute for another 4 to 6 minutes.

    Meanwhile cook noodle in sauce pan,
    very thin, gluten free rice noodles, i use a brand called
    THAI KITCHEN (ingred, is just rice and water)
    I pull of an amount i want for my soup
    and cook them.
    Pour off the water, put contents from frying pan in with noodles and add as much chicken broth you want for your soup.
    I have found a gluten-free chicken broth at walmart thats really good, it called;
    KITCHEN BASICS (they have both beef and chicken and they are really good homemade tasting, gluten free)
    This soup is really good!!!


    I use a 10 oz bag of frozen diced butternut squash
    (some of you garden people might have your own frozed squash!)
    In a sauce pan with
    1Tbs of olive oil
    saute about a 1/4 cup diced sweet onion, with a little salt and pepper.
    Add frozen squash and alittle water cover and simmer,
    until squash is done, (doesn't take very long)
    Put everything in the blender on high
    until creamy.
    Put this back into your sauce pan and add some of the same
    chicken broth i mentioned above (gluten-free)
    Make it as thick or thin as you like and enjoy.
    add a bit of parsley and heat.

    Would you consider editing your post title, and maybe adding the words, and soup, behind your pizza crust???

    If it would be usefull to anyone else finding our Wonderful Gluten Free Menu!! LOL

    Maybe we should just make a new post Called that, Wonderful Gluten Free Menu!!
    Then we and others could just keep adding to it???
    I know when i first started Gluten free i was totally baffled and overwelmed,

    Wait a minute, i still am!! Plus i had eggs and milk taken from me, the first couple months i starved!!!

    I'm always up for new food ideas, i feel so limited.

    Yesterday, we were out of town, so my husband picked up some Domonio pizzas on the way home for him and the boys!

    Talk about torture!! I had to smell that all the way home, i couldn't even watch them eat it, had to leave the room!!

    I'm definitly getting the stuff to make your pizza crust now!!! I still have to order some brown rice flour.
