I have a question about the recipe "Mushrooms and Garbanzos on Toast with Cider and Thyme" from Rebecca Sullivan Fallihee. What would be a good substitute for the arrowroot in this recipe? Thanks!

Pegeen is a trusted home cook.
The arrowroot is used as a thickener, since mushrooms give off a lot of water and in this recipe are also mixed with other liquids. If you don't have arrowroot, try 1 Tablespoon flour whisked hard with with 1 Tablespoon water. After stirring in, let things simmer for a minute to cook down.
Pegeen's answer is spot on. Corn starch can also be used as a direct substitute for arrowroot!
Thanks Rebecca and Pegeen!
