How to use
As this white rice flour is organic and preservative-free, it should ideally be refrigerated to retain maximum freshness. It can be used as an all-purpose plain flour suitable for many everyday-cooking needs. Use it to ‘dust’ vegetables, fish and meat; thicken soup or hotpots; make sauces and bind burgers. This flour is great for traditional rice noodles and pasta. It makes lovely pancake batter, pizza dough or can be used in pastry for pie crusts. Rice flour is delicious in wheat-free bread, cakes, puddings, muffins and cookies. It can be combined with other lighter flours, like coconut or quinoa, and works well in recipes with nut meal and or eggs. When used in bread without a gluten flour, 1 tsp. of vinegar can be added for every 4 cups of flour to help it rise.
Another tip is to make rolls or small loaves, reducing oven temperature by around 20°C. Batter and dough with rice flour also benefits from ½ an hour in the fridge. These steps will help produce less crumbly, well-risen baked goods, common challenges of rice and other non-wheat flours.
