Gluten free tortillas. They are like the Holy Grail of bread-like foods to recreate for those who cannot eat gluten. Either they are too stiff to bend, too hard to eat or just nothing at all the way you remembered them to be. Until now. Until right flippin’ now. All thanks to Otto’s Cassava flour. Before I start raving about this company can we just look at these tortillas? I mean, REALLY look at them. Do you see how effortlessly they bend and hold all the fillings without tearing??! Do you see how slightly charred they get and how they look just like wheat tortillas??! And the air bubbles, oh holy tacos, the air bubbles!!! Did I mention how???!! I’m sorry, am I yelling? I’m yelling. I cannot help it. I have made these six times now and they keep getting better and better. They are worth shouting from the rooftops!!!*
You might be asking yourself, “Wait a minute, doesn’t tapioca starch come from the cassava root? Is this just tapioca in disguise?” Yes and no. Yes, tapioca comes from the root of cassava but it is extracted and bleached. Cassava flour is the entire root, dried and then ground. It is more nutritious, easier to digest and the best part is that it’s grain free as well. Because of Otto’s Cassava flour (available at Harvest Market) you can make GRAIN FREE TORTILLAS.
- 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.
Please note that there is no substitution for the flour. This recipe was created specifically for and with Otto’s Naturals Cassava flour.
