The cardboard-like unbendable tortillas have long been the bane of a gluten-free existence. No delicious soft wraps for us! Well, until now!
We were super excited to find this delicious (& easy!) recipe for gluten-free tortillas from King Arthur Flour, which we have converted for the Thermomix.
210g GF plain flour (we used a store bought mix)
150g besan / chickpea flour (you could also use dried chickpeas and grind your own)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp xanthan gum
20g oil (we used grape seed oil)
- Add the dry ingredients to the TM bowl. If using dried chickpeas, add these first and grind 1 min, Speed 9.
- Mix with 4 Turbo blasts
- Scrape down sides. Add wet ingredients. Mix 1 min, Speed 5. Sit for 15 minutes.
The cooking process is an interesting one, and much easier to understand by watching Joe in the video below. Otherwise, written instructions are below the video.
- Heat a pan or sandwich press. Cut out two pieces of baking paper (roughly to the size of what you will be cooking in) and spray one side of each with oil.
- Put a good tablespoon dollop of the mixture on the oiled side of the baking paper. Put the oiled side of the other baking paper on top and use your rolling pin to roll out thinly.
- Put the baking paper / tortilla bundle in the sandwich press or on the stove. Leave for 15-30 seconds. Take top baking paper off and flip tortilla over. Take other paper off too. Cook for about 15 seconds before flipping to other side. (Note: if using a sandwich press, no need to flip)
Your delicious, flexible tortilla is now ready to be enjoyed!
