GF flour subsitute in vegetable fritters?

Klary | Mar 13, 2013 04:06 AM

I'm cooking a 5-course, GF, vegetarian dinner for 8 later this week, which is a huge challenge because some of the guests are carnivores and I want everyone to eat the same things and be happy! I thought I had everything covered, but now I see that the cauliflower fritter recipe I want to use has a couple of tablespoons of flour in it along with eggs to make the batter.

What would be the best substitute for this? I have rice flour and almond meal. Would cornstarch make it gummy? I read about adding chickpea flour - am worried that this will add a weird, too strong taste. I also thought of adding cornmeal but because the main course is polenta, I'd rather not have the fritters taste like fried polenta.

I won't have time to test them before the dinner. Any advice appreciated!
