    do you think it would be ok to use a little arrowroot to thicken sauces?

    tonight i sautéed some mushrooms, poured on some cream and used about a tsp of arrowroot to thicken, tasted lovely, but is it allowed?

    I'm having a senior moment, there is a thickener out there that is zero carb, I use it most weeks but do you think I can remember it!! It has a strange complex name.

    Xantham gum can be used as a thickener.

    That's it, thanks Lorna, :bliss: :bliss:

    I hate it when you are trying desperately to remember something and it's lurking in the corner of your mind. :)

    It's in the 'free from' aisle in our Tesco & someone told me it was in the same aisle in Sainburys.

    Does anyone know how to add it? I know it sounds stupid, but I mixed it with a little water & it went like glue :(. I just stirred it around in the slow cooker & hope for the best. Should I just sprinkle it in?

    Yes it's in the Freaks, Geeks and Weirdo's aisle.

    I just sprinkle a little in Sharon, doesn't take much though so be careful, and I add it after boiling not before.
