Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter
Love sourdough but you're gluten free? This Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter is so easy - you can have tasty sourdough bread ready right away.
Combine 1/2 cup flour (whatever gluten-free flour or gluten-free flour blend you like) and a scant 1/2 cup filtered water in a medium to large bowl.Whisk until smooth and cover the gluten free sourdough starter with a plate, leaving approximately 1/2" gap for air to circulate.Set the bowl in a warm area where it will not be disturbed. A kitchen counter, pantry cabinet, or patio will all work.
Wait 12-24 hours.
At least twice a day for the next six days, at regular intervals, add 1/2 cup of flour and a scant 1/2 cup of filtered water to the existing starter. Mix until smooth, and cover.This is called feeding the starter.Make sure to watch your starter carefully.
When your gluten-free sourdough starter is very bubbly and creates a dome on top 2-3 hours after each feeding (like the above picture), you are ready to make bread. This is often called the sponge.
Use your starter for making the sourdough bread of choice. See above this recipe card in the post for some great options!
