    1. Marianne, If you use potato flour, add it at the end of cooking and do not let it boil. I don’t know how the texture will be if you freeze it with the potato flour. Tapioca flour would be ok too, but again not sure how the texture will be once frozen. I personally would use arrowroot.Hope this helps! Happy cooking!
