gluten free roux for gumbo?

JKan | Oct 23, 201001:18 PM

I found a previous post with several people suggesting the use of white rice flour instead of wheat flour if you need to make a gluten-free roux. I am having guests over for gumbo and will try with the rice flour because one of them is on a gluten-free diet, but I must say I am skeptical. I can see it working in some recipes but in gumbo the flavor of the roux is so critical to the overall flavor of the gumbo - have people successfully made gumbo with white rice flour or another alternative to wheat flour for the roux? I may make the rice flour roux a few days in advance to test it out first, then freeze it if it seems right, else make something else entirely.

Thanks.
