Flour Tortillas (Gluten-Free)
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
2 cups brown rice flour
1 teaspoon xanthan Gum
1 teaspoon sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
3 cup water
2 tablespoon olive oil
First mix all the dry ingredients into a bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix well. Pour 1/3 a cup of the mixture into a good nonstick medium sized frying pan (I have also made these on a griddle but that requires picking up the griddle and tilting it to make larger rounds). Tilt the pan in alternating directions to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook on medium-high heat until the edges begin to pull up from the pan. You will need to pull up on the edge (fingers work better than a spatula - but be careful) and flip the tortilla. If the tortilla breaks try cooking it longer before flipping or you may need to use non-stick spray on the pan. Flip the tortilla ever 2 minutes or so until it puffs up like a balloon. After each tortilla you will need to let the pan cool down a little before starting the next one(Otherwise you get holes in the tortillas - I use 3 pans and alternate between them). Let the tortillas cool for 10 minutes or so and they will become flimsy. This recipe makes approximately 12 tortillas.
