Grain-Free Tortillas (spinach, red pepper +
Today’s recipe is three in one, so I’m going to go ahead + get right down to it! I will say quickly that we’re thrilled to finally be posting this trio, we wanted to wait until the texture and taste were just right. They are flexible, delicious and mild in flavor– allowing the filling to be the star. That being said, they are also delightful on their own or with a bit of melted cheese, if you have a picky eater in the family.
These tortillas can be used for fajitas, wraps, quesadillas, enchiladas, tostadas and more! They’re fun to experiment with and I recommend trying every flavor. You will find all three recipes below. The spinach are featured in the photographs, but all three will undergo a similar process. Refer to these instructional shots as you go through the recipe for guidance and have fun with it!☺️
Tips For Today:
-I recommend either the 8 inch cast iron or this aluminum tortilla press. Alternatively, you can use a frying pan to press the tortilla out.
-You will need to purchase Now Foods Gelatin Powder for this recipe. Knox gelatin will not work in this case.
-You will want to cut out eighteen 8″ circles out of parchment paper. Your tortillas will be pressed on this paper so they can easily be transferred to the oven. You can purchase some already cut for $3.92 on Amazon here.
-I prefer to use Glad Press And Seal instead of traditional saran wrap in this recipe as it has a little more strength to it. It can be reused several times and is easier to work with overall.
-Store your finished tortillas in a large ziplock bag in the fridge. Warm them in the microwave for 12 seconds to restore their soft texture.
Whisk dry ingredients then add in wet ingredients, combine to form dough. Let dough sit 5 minutes before forming into balls. Dough will be sticky.
Make sure to dip your fingers in water and lightly coat the surface of the ball of dough before placing the saran wrap over top. The plastic will peel back much easier as a result.
Storing your tortillas in a tortilla warmer will keep them nice and soft.
Happy Tortilla Making + Enjoy the recipes!😊
