Life Changer

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)

INGREDIENTS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. 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.
  2. Knead the dough until smooth.
  3. Divide into two balls and then three even dough balls from each piece so you have six dough balls.
  4. Roll each dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper until thin.
  5. 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.
  6. Place on a plate and stack each tortilla on top, covered with a towel to keep warm.
