Wraps/flat Bread's?
0

9 posts in this topic

Hi!

Anyone have a recipe for flat bread or wraps that don't fall apart when fold them or roll them? I'm dying to find one (I would order them from the gluten free mall, but they don't deliver internationally).

Thanks!

I'm no help on the recipe aspect, but I use corn tortillas all the time. the trick is to hea them up before trying to fold or roll them. 20 seconds in the microwave or a minute in a pan work. On the go, I haven't figured out wha tto do yet...

hey,

there's a message on this board with a recipe for poori, it's an indian flatbread. but it's fried. and it's suuuuper yummy. no need for the sugar/cin, just try it plain. my hubby and i make it frequently, he loves it and he doesn't need to eat gluten free. we eat it with hummus, or cheese (goat primarily), or whatever we think would go well with it. try it, i think you'll really like it.

just scroll down to see the recipe for poori, but i would add about a tablespoon of sugar to the flour mix.

Flour Tortillas

1 and 1/4 cups gluten-free flour (I use Bette Hageman's featherlight mix)

1 t xanthan gum

1 t sugar

1/2 salt

1 T almond meal/flour

1 T oil

1/2 cup water

Directions:

1. mix dry ingredients, then add oil and water

2. divide dough into 4 equal parts

3. roll each section between 2 sides of a cut-open plastic ziploc bag until tortilla-thin (can dust wax paper with cornstarch or other gluten-free flour if it sticks)

4. cook, one at a time, on a heavy pan (cast iron is best) that is lightly oiled and over medium-high to high heat. Prick all over with fork to prevent bubbles forming/puffing up. Cook until lightly browned - less than a minute, then flip over.

5. Makes 4 8-inch tortillas

I fill mine (1/2 circle) with guacamole and shredded cheese, then flip over top and reheat over hot pan until cheese is melted. YUM! also good for quesidillas, and wrap sandwiches. Store in ziploc bag in fridge - reheat in microwave 10-20 secs or in hot pan before using.

Enjoy!

Williams Brand Taco and Chili seasonings are gluten-free. McCormick's seasonings are gluten-free...you can use chili powder, onion and ground cummin and that is about what is in a taco seasoning packet.

I tried the flour tortillas again - this time rolling between two sides of a cut-open gallon size ziploc bag -it works really well - doesn't stick...even without flour dusting! I'm going to edit my original recipe to include this!

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/

      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
