I really like this recipe because the tortillas are super quick to make. We top ours with fresh avocado, tomatoes, black beans, & red bell pepper but you can easily top them with anything! They taste best when they are fresh. Don't forget to have your happy helpers make these with you, they can easily do this recipe and will enjoy helping you in the kitchen.
If you happen to be on an Elimination Diet as I am right now, this recipe is also Elimination Diet friendly.
This recipe can easily be doubled if you are feeding a crowd (or halved if you are just feeding yourself)
Recipe will make approx. 4-6 Tortillas
1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour blend (If on Elimination Diet make sure it's corn & soy free)
1/2 teaspoon arrowroot
3/4 teaspoons baking powder (If on Elimination Diet use the subtitute below)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tsp olive oil
½–3/4 cup warm water
Elimination Diet Baking Powder Replacement:
For a Corn Free Baking Powder sift together: 2 tsp. Cream of Tarter, 2 tsp Arrowroot, 1 tsp Baking soda (Can be stored in airtight container to have on hand)
1. In a medium size bowl add flour, arrowroot, baking powder and salt and wisk together. Add the olive oil and stir to combine. Pour in warm water slowly, adding in increments and stirring to combine.
2. Press dough together with your hand and divide into desired size. Roll each piece separately between two sheets of plastic wrap until about 1/8-inch thick.
3. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat with about a tablespoon of olive oil.
4. Once the skillet is hot, place each raw tortilla flat in the skillet, one at a time. Allow each to cook for 45 to 60 seconds or until slightly charred on the underside. (You’re better off under-cooking than over-cooking them) Then flip tortilla with a large, heatproof spatula and cook for another 30 to 45 seconds.
5. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel.
6. Continue until all tortillas are cooked, top, and enjoy!
I love frozen treats in the middle of summer. I was raised on Root Beer Floats and Ice Cream both of which are loaded with refined sugars and other junk...this is not a good thing.
I was on the hunt for a yummy frozen yogurt treat for the girls with NO REFINED SUGAR that my happy helpers could easily make with me AND be palatable for picky eaters.
I modified a recipe from the Chobani website:
1 Cup of plain greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
1 Cup of organic frozen berries
1 Tablespoon of Raw Honey
Put all into a blender. I had to let the ingredients sit out and thaw for about 15 minutes before blending. But I don't have the best blender, so you may be able to blend right away.
Then I poured the mixture into my instant Popsicle maker, and in about 7 minutes we were eating treats! I just got this for my birthday last weekend and this was my first time using it. It's pretty awesome!
However, if you don't have one of these don't worry! You can buy the Popsicle molds anywhere; it will just take about 6 hours to freeze them so plan ahead. Or you can use little plastic cups, insert Popsicle stick, and freeze.
These are very healthy foods for your body. Not only is there no refined ingredients, but it will give you 6 grams of fiber, protein, vitamins, antioxidants, phytonutrients, live cultures, and lots of other good healthy benefits.
