Favorite Tip #83: Sauce Thickeners

Favorite Tip #83: Sauce Thickeners

Instead of thickening a sauce with flour or cornstarch, try thoroughly grinding and substituting flaxseed, oatmeal, quinoa, or nuts. I also tried using a couple of tablespoons of ground mild spices, but that didn’t work so well. Enjoy.


  1. I like this idea. Good for the gluten free people.

    • You’re right, Gerri. Hadn’t thought of that–too busy playing with my food, again. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley

  2. No gluten problems here. I’ll keep using flour.

    • Flour definitely works, David. You know I just like to play with recipes, try different flavors and textures. All for fun. Cheers, Ashley
