- Ready In:
- In the bowl of a mixer, blend gluten free mix ingredients, xanthan gum, sugar, salt, and milk powder. Add the water and beat on medium speed for 1 minute.
- Remove dough from mixer and form a ball. Divide into 6 or 8 parts and roll out each piece very thin until it forms a 10” to 12” round. Roll all the pieces, separating them with plastic wrap or wax paper before cooking.
- Heat a griddle to medium-hot or hot and cook each tortilla about 1 minute per side.
Wow! I've only recently went gluten/wheat free, and these are just as good as any flour tortilla I've had! Good texture, clean flavor. Great for veggie wraps and whatever else! Oh, and easy. I ended up rolling them on parchment and cooking one side while the parchment was still attached (batter was sticky, and it wouldn't come off without tearing). Once it was ready to flip, the parchment pulled off easily. Definitely going to become a standby for me.
These are some of the best tasting and textured gluten free tortillas that I have tried. I did make a few adjustments to the recipe. For half of the tapioca flour I used Expandex which is a modified tapioca starch that is used to increase the shelf life of gluten free products. A combination of 1 teaspoon xanthan gum and 1/2 teaspoon guar gum was used. I had read somewhere that the combination produced a better browning at least in gluten free yeast products. The dry ingredients were placed in the bowl of the food processor and mixed together, with the processor running I added in the warm water. After the dough formed a smooth ball, the dough was separated into 10 small balls with wet hands. The balls were placed into a bowl, covered with a warm damp towel and allowed to rest for a few minutes. I really need to practice rolling these out. My best efforts were to slit a plastic food storage bag, spray in lightly with non-stick cooking spray and using my tortilla press form them into 6 inch tortillas. These are nice and pliable with a delicious flavor. I will practice and see if I can't get a better round tortillas. Thank you for posting.
Excellent tortilla recipe! I'm not great at making tortillas at all, but this worked like a charme for me. Followed the recipe exactly, using powdered almond milk for the powdered milk. Thanks for sharing, now finally I have a flour tortilla recipe that works well and tastes great!<br/>Made for Make My Recipe Reunion / AUS / NZ Forum
I am diligently converting to a gluten free lifestyle and have found the ultimate gluten free tortilla recipe. This is down right delicious and more importantly for me, pliable. Meaning, it looks, tastes and performs just as good as the wheat flour tortillas I grew up with. A huge plus for me is that they are not at all dry, thin, crumbly nor expensive to make. You can't say that about those you find in health food markets. Quick and very easy to make. Dough is a bit sticky, so opt for the ziplock bag sprayed with oil and if you spray the palms of your hand with the oil as well it makes handling the dough balls a breeze to work with. Thank you for this fabulous recipe. It will be a staple in my home. Michael R., Albuquerque, NM
