Preparation, Uses, & Tips

Substitute spelt or Kamut® for wheat flour in many recipes; add specialty flours like amaranth or teff to cakes and breads to increase flavor and nutrition; use flour as a base for sauces and gravies. Rice flour is available for those with wheat allergies. Chickpea and lentil flour, used in Indian cooking, are available at specialty markets. Soy flour can be used to replace wheat flours in many recipes, but it works poorly for foods like bread, as it is low in gluten.
