Wraps/flat Bread's?

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!

    • Yes I made it  Welcome Lakme, you've found a great community and resource and I'm sure myself and Ennis won't be the only ones that recognise elements of our own experiences in your account.  In addition to the links Ennis sent you above and the stickied forum faq, I tried putting down some info that may be useful to people just realising they may have an issue with gluten, you can find it in this thread:    Reading your account you do tick a lot of the boxes and perhaps you have found the underlying cause. As that thread explains however, we can't diagnose you, if you want answers you'll need to be eating gluten in order for the tests to work. I know this is probably the last thing you want at the moment, but do read the thread and think about it. You're young and that diagnosis could prove useful for a number of reasons in the years ahead. The longer you leave it, the more of a challenge the gluten challenge may prove.  Out of interest how long since you started on the diet and have you noticed any change in symptoms? You may want to consider keeping a journal, it can be very difficult to track the neuro type symptoms in particular, a written account helps you do that and tracking progress can help with anxiety issues and depression too. I get these too. It's not formally diagnosed, like you I had a physical exam of the eye which failed to show anything, but I believe it to be optic neuritis. It's vastly improved since my diet change, as has an awful lot of other stuff.  So if you're celiac or non celiac gluten sensitive you will hopefully see similar improvements in the weeks, months and even years ahead.  I wish you the best of luck.  Matt
    • Lenbh- I was diagnosed last year and I have wondered that very question. Not too long ago (before kids) I traveled quite a bit. The idea of traveling now with celiac is a bit overwhelming.  I am pretty strict at home to avoid gluten and almost never eat in situations where CC is even possible- and as far as I can tell, I don't really get any symptoms of glutening.   I have definitely heard that it is easy to travel to Ireland with celiac. In fact, many restaurants have 2 menus - a regular and a coeliac. They often cook the food in a separate kitchen as well.  I can't wait to take my kids to Italy and am already thinking "how in the world will that ever work???" I have decided so far that I will do my best, not knowingly eat gluten, and try to buy food in stores or eat in "safe" restaurants -but understand that the more often I eat in restaurants, the more likely it is to be exposed to gluten. I guess it's just a risk I'm willing to take every once in a while so that I can explore the world with my kids.  And, yes, Gelato! At least twice a day while in Italy...:)
    • They do not work for prevention, they might help with getting over the gut pains. But will not stop the antibody reaction, or the damage. At $100+ a bottle your better off investing in Nima or EZ gluten strips and testing foods.   Other thoughts for quick alternatives. They sell microwave cookers out of plastic and silicon for eggs, bacon, etc. Might be worth getting and doing dishes that way. Steam bags and fresh veggies also to avoid pans and pots that could have issues. I been looking at MRE type stuff allergen friendly myself for trips and emergency's. Things get expensive at $6-7 a meal compared to bars or shakes.
    • I would not use these as prevention, but maybe they would help a post-glutening.  In my case, I travel with lactose tablets and digestive enzymes.    When glutened, I become lactose intolerant again.    Would hate to miss out on some gelato.  Do not forget any meds you normally take too.  
    • Thanks for the help! I didn't know Bacardi was gluten-free; that's a great option.
