Flour Substitute??

I wanted to know what I could use as a flour substitute for cooking? Not baking. Any ideas?

I use guar gum to thicken quite a few things, like gravy or chinese sauces instead of flour or cornstarch.

depends on what you are wanting to do??

i.e as thickner biscotti has already mentioned xantham gum. If it's "breading" (how you dust with flour) then use almond flour (ground almonds) or parmesan cheese (can type). Almond flour substiutes well in baking cakes/slices etc. Bread you can use WPI or soy flour.

Thanks you two for the help!! Mostly, I was looking for thickner and duster, but now I got it for baking too. I'll use the info for sure.

Thanks again

I use almond flour/meal to bread meat and poultry. Also works good as a crunchy topping on casseroles. I can not handle soy flour. Ugh!

for breading, I like to use a combination of ground pork rinds and parmesan cheese, seasoned with my spice blend. Of all the things I have tried, this remains our favorite.
