Gluten-free Flour Blend

Yield: 9 cups

3 cups garbanzo/fava bean flour*
2 cups potato starch **
2 cups cornstarch**
1 cup tapioca flour
1 cup sorghum flour

* Made by Authentic Foods, Bob’s Red Mill, or Ener-G Foods. Also available from other gluten-free vendors such as Miss Roben’s, Gluten-Free Pantry, Gluten Solutions, and Glutino.
** If potato starch is inappropriate for your diet, use 4 cups cornstarch. Likewise, if cornstarch is off-limits for you use 4 cups potato starch.

Mix these together in an airtight container and store in a cool, dark, dry place. I use large canisters with either screw tops or wire-latch closures. You may halve this recipe if you prefer a smaller mix.
