One of the hardest things (for us) about moving to a clean diet free of GMO's, grains, and wheat is giving up tortillas and wraps. We have driven hours to other cities to enjoy non-GMO corn tortillas at one point, but we can't do that everyday. It is just something we have just been doing without for a while...until this week.
We received our first order of Otto's Cassava Flour over the weekend and I was eager to get in the kitchen today and make some wraps with it. I am not going to lie...I was a little hesitant. If you have been down this health road for any amount of time not all recipes that re-create former food-love works out. Sometimes the texture is off, sometimes the taste is off, and sometimes the smell is bad. Not today friends...today was a life changer.
I used this recipe from Fork & Beans : (check out their site for more information)
- ¾ c. Otto's Naturals Cassava flour
- ¼ tsp. sea salt
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- ⅓ c. warm water
- Whisk together the flour and salt. Add the oil and warm water until a nice dough begins to form. The dough should not be dry or too wet and sticky.
- Knead the dough until smooth.
- Divide into two balls and then three even dough balls from each piece so you have six dough balls.
- Roll each dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper until thin.
- Heat a nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Once properly heated, place tortilla on the skillet. Wait for the air bubbles to form (approx. 1 minute) and then flip. Each side should be slightly browned.
- Place on a plate and stack each tortilla on top, covered with a towel to keep warm.
