About Organic Kuzu Starch Root Gluten Free,

Kuzu or Kudzu is a Gluten Free starch thickener which is derived from the root of the kuzu vine.

It has a smooth texture and neutral flavour that is naturally extracted from the Kuzu roots, one of Japan's most vigorous wild plants. Kuzu makes an ideal thickener for soups and stews, sweet and savoury sauces, glazes and pie fillings and desserts.

Gluten Free Leek, Carrot and Beetroot Savoury Cake Recipe

Summary: Savoury cakes are very popular in France. They are great to have for a light lunch with a green salad, or to take on a picnic. You can also cook them in mini muffin tins and put them in children (or adult) bento boxes. All time favourite savoury cakes include olives, pesto, sundried tomatoes, … This one is packed full with caramelised leeks and the grated beetroot and carrot somehow deliciously vanish in the cake … We use goats milk and yoghurt, as it is easier to digest than cow dairy. You could also use soy milk and soy yoghurt. Rapadura is made by evaporating sugar cane juice, leaving unrefined sugar. Rapadura is rich in nutrients with a lovely flavour. Kuzu root is a natural thickener used in Japanese cooking. You could use cornflour instead if you can not get kudzu, but while cornflour is low on nutritional value, the Japanese use kuzu in the same way we use Echinacea : it helps prevent colds, promotes good digestion, helps to ease aches and pains, and is even used in a hangover remedy, along with umeboshi plum, grated ginger and lemon juice. Not bad for a cake ingredient … And finally, please feel free to substitute the gluten-free flour for the flour of your choice. Spelt flour, for example, makes a more dense and nutty cake.
