Hello everybody!

I'm in Buenos Aires, visiting my in-laws.  I'm staying for a while so I've been looking around for my usual cooking ingredients so that I could keep up with my BTD life style.

Well, to my surprise I can't find buckwheat flour, or at least I haven't found it yet.  I thought that rye flour might be a good substitute, mainly because I like the flavor, not because I've ever used it .

I tried to do my usual pancakes and it was a real disaster: they wouldn't hold together!!!  I ended up adding some wheat flour and an extra egg to the mixture (I normally use 1 egg only and no wheat, plus ground almonds, grated apples, walnuts and honey or similar).

Any idea what else I could use which is compliant or how I could make use of the rye flour I already have?  BTW, other available compliant flours  here in BA are oat and soy flour.

I miss my kitchen and all the products I can get in London!!!  Still, I'm doing my best and my only compromise, so far, has been having small amounts of wheat on a regular basis - which I don't do in London.  Still, I'm staying away from all that meat and pastries with animal fat they have over here

Well, any suggestions are very welcome!  

I'll keep you posted.

PS The people over here who've asked me about the 'diet' I'm doing are fascinated with it.  Any idea whether Dr D's books are available in Argentina and, if so, with what the title?

rye flour doesn't stick together - you have to mix it with other flours to use it for anything other than dusting - a proportion of 1/3 rye - 2/3 other compliant flour works well for most things

Thank you for the tip,  Koahiatamadl!  

Does anyone know whether I would have any problems with soy flour?  What I mean is, would it 'stick' like buckwheat flour or would it have the same properties as rye flour?

Thanks!

a combination of these flours is best.
