replacement for soy?



I want to make wontons and I found a recipe for LC wontons. This is the recipe:

Wonton Wrappers

1 egg
3/4 tsp salt
[COLOR="Red"]1 cup soy flour[/COLOR]
1/8-1/4 cup water, as needed

Lightly beat egg in bowl with salt. Add 1/8 cup water.

In the center of a flour well in a bowl, add the liquids, and stir in ingredients. Add water as needed. If the dough is still too dry, continue to add small amounts of water until dough is able to be handled.

Form the dough in a ball and knead. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.

On a lightly-floured board, roll out dough into thin sheets and cut into 3 1/2" squares. These can be refrigerated or frozen and used later if lightly dusted with soy flour prior to storing.

Makes 6 servings.

Nutritional Information: Calories: 85, Carbohydrates: 5 g, Fiber: 1.5 g. Net Carbohydrates: 3.5 g, Protein: 7 g, Fat: 5 g

[COLOR="Red"]Now for my question: Is there something else I can use in place of the soy? I have thyroid issues so I can't eat soy, but would LOVE to have wontons.

Does anyone have any suggestions? (I don't have carbalous or anything like that, what about vital wheat gluten work? [/COLOR]

THANKS SO MUCH.... Mary

I'm sure some experts (I am not one) will weigh in here, but soy flour is a very light flour and maybe a coconut flour would work well here?
