I Must Be Desperate!

Ok, I made some hummus the other day for quick protien, and i had some leftover roasted veggies. So of course, I'm craving a hummus and veggie wrap!

The problem? Not only am I on a gluten free diet, I also react violently to tapioca, and i'm abstaining from rice right now after a test indicated a moderate reaction to it. Plus, i dont have any decent health food stores near me (for now . .. )

So . .. i found a recipe called Gluten-Free Tortillas #2 on a website called Lesley's Recipe Archive, on tripod. I altered her recipe in a big way . . . the resulting tortilla (I only cooked one, i put the remaining dough in individual portions in the fridge) was slightly bitter and stiff, but I did manage to put hummus and veggies on it, fold it in half, and eat it from my hand and enjoy it!!

Her recipe, with my alterations (note, I halved everything):

1-cup white rice flour (1/2 c millet flour, except 1 tb of sorghum in it)

1/3-cup potato starch

1/3-cup tapioca flour

1/3-cup fava bean flour (I used potato starch flour, corn starch and garfava, about 1/3 each filling up a 1/2 cup measure)

(I added a sprinkling of flax meal)

2-tsp xanthan gum (1 tsp)

1-tsp baking powder (1/2 tsp)

1/2-tsp sugar (1/4 tsp)

1 1/4-tsp salt (1/4 tsp and that was plenty for me)

2-tbsp vegetable or other shortening (1 TB)

3/4 to 1-cup warm water (something less than 1/2 c)

Combine all of the dry ingredients, then cut in the shortening using a pastry blender

Add the warm water, starting with 3/4 cup and mix well

Continue to add water until a soft, cohesive dough is formed

Heat a griddle to medium heat

Form a ball of dough into a flattened disk, cupping the outside edges a bit to form a round

Using a rolling pin, roll into a round disk about 1/8 inch thick and about 8 inches in diameter or to your preference

Bake one at a time on a hot griddle until the surface bubbles

Turn only once, the first side should have brown flecks

Bake until the second side has slightly browned - should brown in a very short time

Keep warm in a tortilla keeper or wrapped in a cloth until served

Makes 6 to 8 tortillas.

Note: Will freeze in a sealed plastic bag for up to three months.

Update: I made a second wrap today, with dough that I'd put in the fridge. I let the dough ball warm at room temp for about 5 minutes before I rolled it. It was MUCH easier to handle than it had been the day before - didnt stick as much, rolled out thinner. It also had a very pleasant yeasty smell - like maybe it had done a little sour-dough thing. It was more pliable when cooked, and i added some leftover lamb to the filling . . . happy me!

    What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?    
    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
