Just Like Wheat Tortilla Recipe (Gluten-Free)

Developed by Monica Poole of Debys Gluten Free

Ingredients:
2 cups tapioca flour
1 cup Debys gluten-free biscuit mix
2 tablespoons shortening
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
½ cup milk or soy milk

Separate for rolling: ½ cup Asian sweet rice flour

Directions:
Combine dry ingredients except rice flour into a bowl. Add ½ cup of milk or soy milk. Stir milk and flour together, blending well. Mix will be somewhat moist, but not runny.

Sprinkle sweet rice flour liberally on a flat surface and knead dough to a smooth ball. Completely wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for about an hour.

Remove from plastic. Divide into 10-12 portions and roll into balls. The less balls you make, the thicker the tortillas will be. Cover them with a damp cloth to keep them from drying out while rolling.

Liberally sprinkle wooden cutting board or counter with sweet rice flour. Roll each ball of dough to a 10 inch round. Wood will release the dough easily, use wax paper or plastic if it sticks to your counter. You can also use a tortilla press to start the flattening process. Use a rolling pin to make a very flat and smooth tortilla.
Cut into a circle with a knife by hand, or use a cooking pan lid that is the desired diameter, like you would a cookie cutter.

If not cooking tortillas immediately, stack with wax paper or plastic in between the tortillas and store in an airtight container or baggie.
Caution- leaving dough or tortillas exposed to the air will very quickly dry them out.

Cook on a hot surface for about 30 seconds on each side. Use immediately, or store in a tightly sealed plastic bag.

Reheat on a hot surface. DO NOT MICROWAVE. Keep unused tortillas in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator.

These tortillas are the best! They fold and roll like wheat without cracking or crumbling.

If you hear an ice cream truck playing morbid music, grab your money and run! They sell roasted sweet potatoes from a truck. Live on those. They are delicious. Eat them as you would eat a candy bar. It's just sweet potato. Maybe 300-500 yen for a big one. They are sold by weight. served h...

I have been to amusement parks & stadiums that don't really have gluten-free except ice cream, chips, that sort of stuff. And, when called or emailed in advance, I am given a note to bring my own food.& eat outside with my family. But that is different than a restaurant that is not allowed to h...

So sorry it is difficult. There is soy and fish flavoring in everything! I too have neurological damage from 40 years of gluten. I can feel your pain. Do you want me to look for a base contact for you? I still have a connection at my Okinawa church which is near Camp Foster.

I find it amusing I brought this up to point out that discrimination is not something that should happen to those of us with this disease and if handled well we can compromise by bringing our own food where allowed and calling and contacting places prior to going explaining and setting things up....

I lived in Okinawa for 4 years prior to diagnosis. My son however tried to go gluten free during that time. His school had no idea what I was trying to say and could do nothing for him. Everyone eats school lunch. Period. It was difficult. If I went back I would eat the percooked hard boiled...
