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!

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
