does anyone have any really easy recipes for flatbread, tortilla, or pittas- im not really bothered about baking a proper loaf. just need something dead quick and easy.

im rubbish at baking and just bought some different flours, got rice,brown rice, maize, chickpea and the baking powder and stuff. the only thing is -no eggs, ive read that you can use apple sauce as a replacement.

any ideas welcome lol- i just need something that remotely resembles bread!!!

Wraps:

 

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup water or milk

2 Tbsp flax moistened (I haven't tried it without eggs)

dash salt

 

warm fry pan.

Add butter or oil

Add some batter and tip if you want it spread thin.

Toast lightly on each side.

Eat.

 

It takes about 5 minutes.

 

Other idea look for grainless muffins on the internet.  I make mine with nut flour I make in a food processor.  It satisfies my bread craving.

She can't do eggs.   :unsure:

 

Okay, do you have available, as an egg substitute, some flaxseed ground up, or some chia seed that you can soak in water, or some plain, gluten free unsweetened psyllium ?   Otherwise can you find gluten free buckwheat (you can grind buckwheat seeds in a coffee grinder to make flour) or gluten free tapioca or gluten free amaranth or quinoa ?  All of these "sticky" type flour ingredients can be used as part of egg substitutes in gluten free baking. 

 

Gluten free flatbread pancake

 

3 heaping tablespoons gluten free flours (preferably straight buckwheat, or  1/2 buckwheat 1/2 other "sticky" type of gluten freee flour, or 1/3 each buckwheat, chickpea, potato starch)

pinch salt

pinch baking soda

some chia seed soaked in a little cold water is better for this, about a teaspoon of chia to a tablespoon of water, to make a "gel" 

1/2 teaspoon vinegar

enough water to make a pancake type batter of the above

optional spices (a pinch of cumin is nice) 

tablespoon oil, preferably olive oil

 

 

mix the above ingredients, adding enough water to make a thick batter,  then cook in oil in a hot pan, makes 2 small or one big flatbread

The best skillet for breads is usually a well-seasoned cast iron that you can use stove top or in the oven at high temps.  I use mine for everything from roasting chicken to biscuits to cornbread to buns to cinnamon rolls to scallion pancakes to tortillas...

    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.
