Can cornstarch be substituted for flour in gumbo?

Corn starch can most certainly be used to make a roue; I do it all the time; in fact I prefer it. When substituting for flour, use 1/3 to 1/2 the amount of corn starch.

No- if your making a roux. It won't work.

If it is used as a thickening agent, I would assume so.
