    Gluten-Free Corn and Roast Beef Tortilla Wraps

    Celiac.com 07/21/2018 - These easy-to-make tortilla wraps make a great addition to your lunchtime menu. Simply grab your favorite gluten-free tortillas, a bit of cream cheese, some charred fresh sweet corn, creamy avocado and ripe summer tomato. Add a bit of sliced roast beef and some mayonnaise and hot sauce, and you’re in business. And it's all ready in about half an hour. If you cook the corn the night before, they can be ready in just a few minutes.

    Ingredients:

    • 12 ounces thinly sliced cooked beef, sliced
    • 6 burrito-sized gluten-free tortillas
    • 1 ripe medium avocado, diced
    • 1 large tomato, diced
    • ½ medium red onion, thinly sliced
    • ¼ cup mayonnaise
    • 2 ears sweet corn, husks and silk removed
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • ¾ cup soft cream cheese spread
    • 1-2 teaspoons gluten-free hot sauce of choice
    • Sprouted pea greens, as desired
    • fresh salsa, as desired

    Directions:
    Heat grill to medium-hot. 

    Brush corn with olive oil. 

    In a small dish, blend mayonnaise and hot sauce. Adjust mixture, and add fresh salsa, as desired.

    Grill corn for 8 to 12 minutes, turning as it browns and lowering heat as needed until corn is tender and charred in some places. 

    Cool slightly; cut kernels from cobs.

    Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese on one side of each tortilla to within ½-inch of edge; arrange beef slices to cover.

    Spread beef with mayonnaise hot sauce mixture as desired.

    Place a bit of grilled corn kernels, avocado, tomato and red onion in a 3-inch strip along one edge of each tortilla. 

    Fold ends and roll into a burrito shape, and serve. I like to add sweet, crunchy pea greens for some extra crunch and nutrition.

    The photo looks like the tortillas are browned -- i.e.  heated or 'grilled' --  and I don't see anything in the directions about that.  Can someone add more info to the preparation directions if that's the case?

    I was wondering the same thing about the tortillas. They appear to be perhaps deep fried?

    I agree with Guest in Pgh, recipe looks delicious, but tortillas looked like they have been fried and recipe does not not include any info on that.

    Layering different spices is a sensory indulgence as much as it is an experience in cooking. I love this recipe and curries in general because the spices work together to take command of the dish and infuse otherwise ordinary ingredients with brazen flavor.
    Most major manufacturers of spices will state on their label that they are gluten-free, but always double check because some brands use trace amounts of flour to prevent caking.
    This recipe can easily be substituted with canned chickpeas, but if time allows, always opt for fresh. If you can utilize beans in other recipes, purchasing dried chickpeas will actually save you money. This recipe makes enough to serve up to 8 people and is also great over rice. Cooked chickpeas double as the base for an endless variety of hummus dips!
    Ingredients:
    3 cups dried chickpeas
    2-3 large diced tomatoes with juices
    2 medium onions thinly sliced
    4 cloves minced garlic
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil or ghee (check label for gluten-free)
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons turmeric
    2 teaspoons garam masala
    2 teaspoons paprika
    2 tablespoons ground cumin
    2 tablespoons ground coriander
    1 teaspoon allspice
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 bay leaf
    1 tablespoon fresh parsley
    6-8 gluten-free pitas
    Green onions trimmed, for tying (optional)
    Directions:
    Place dried chickpeas in a large bowl and cover with water at least three inches above the beans. Let soak overnight and beans will expand twice their size.
    Drain chickpeas and place in a large stockpot. Cover with fresh water at least three inches over the beans. Add bay leaf and bring to a gentle boil before reducing heat to low.
    Continue to simmer for about 1 hour or until beans are cooked, but not mushy.
    Discard bay leaf. Drain and reserve chickpeas.
    Heat oil in a large pan and cook onions about 5 minutes or until they become soft and translucent. Add garlic and cook for a minute longer, stirring.
    Add chili powder, turmeric, paprika, cumin, coriander, allspice and salt and stir over heat until the spices become very fragrant, only about a minute.
    Stir in reserved chickpeas and tomatoes until well-combined. Cover pan and simmer over low heat for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in garam masala and simmer another 10 minutes. Top with fresh parsley.
    Serve wrapped in heated pitas. Tie loosely with trimmed onions for presentation.

    Amy's Gluten-Free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap
    If your looking for a quick grab and go breakfast or a satisfying snack that is gluten free, dairy free and also vegan, then I would suggest Amy's Gluten-free Tofu Scramble Breakfast Wrap.  You can either microwave it just shy of 2 minutes, or put it in the oven if you prefer a crispier wrap. 
    This wrap is filled with organic vegetables like tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms and spinach.  Amy's wrap also has organic hash browns which I think gives it more of that “comfort food” feeling, along with plenty of organic tofu of course. 
    In my opinion, this was well seasoned, and I really liked how they blended all of these nutritional ingredients to make not just a healthy breakfast alternative, but a tasty one as well. 
    Amy's Gluten-free Tofu Scramble is wrapped up like a burrito, but I would have to say that the texture of the wrap reminds me more of a crêpe than it does a tortilla, but I like it just the same.  In addition to tasting great, this wrap contains 11 grams of protein and has no trans fat, MSG or preservatives – not a bad way to start the day!

    Asian Lettuce Wraps (Gluten-Free)
    Celiac.com 10/16/2014 - For those lucky enough to have traveled in Lao, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, these lettuce wraps might seem familiar. Variations on lettuce cups are fairly common in the cuisine of those countries.
    These lettuce cups are easy to make, barbecue friendly, and are usually a big hit with party guests.
    These are made with pork, but I’ve seen variations using chicken, beef, or even fish.
    Ingredients:
    16-20 Boston Bibb or butter lettuce leaves 1 pound pork loin, cut into small chunks 1 package of rice vermicelli, softened and drained 8-10 bunch green onions, chopped 4 sprigs fresh mint 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 large onion, chopped 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced ¼ cup gluten-free hoisin sauce 1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 dash red chile pepper sauce (Sriracha or similar) 2 teaspoons sesame oil Directions:
    Place rice vermicelli in boiling water. Cook to al dente, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, rinse in cold water and
    Rinse whole lettuce leaves and pat dry. Set aside.
    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    Cook and stir pork and cooking oil in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes.
    Drain and discard grease; transfer pork to a bowl. Cook and stir onion in the same skillet until slightly tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
    Stir hoisin sauce, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, and chile sauce into onions.
    Add water, green onions, sesame oil, and cooked pork; cook and stir until the onions just begin to soften, about 2 minutes.
    Place meat in a bowl and serve with cold, cooked vermicelli, and lettuce.
    To eat, place a small amount of noodles, meat, and scallions, mint, as desired, and wrap in lettuce like a small burrito.
