Homemade Soft Gluten-Free Tortillas

[These easy-to-make tortillas are vegan, sugar-free, gluten-free,  dairy-free, egg free, soy-free, nut-free and low glycemic. Suitable for all stages on an anti-candida diet.]

Rolled up gluten-free tortilla shell with plant-based filling

The first time I tasted a burrito, I was in my 40s (I know–gasp!).

Even worse, I have never gotten to try an authentic (wheat flour-based) wrap. By the time I was ready, my diet had become 100% gluten-free, and wraps were off the table (so to speak).

So I’m very excited to report that now I (and you!) can have both! If you follow a gluten-free diet and you miss soft tortillas that are yummy, pliable and don’t crack into pieces when you try to roll them up, you’re going to love this recipe from my friend Nele of The Nutriplanet.

Today’s recipe for Nele’s “Wonderful Tortillas” comes from the new cookbook, Think Outside the Lunchbox, which is the brainchild of Jyl Steinback and Ashley Arpel Greenwald and “friends”–a collection of bloggers, nutritionists, registered dieticians, chefs and other recipe developers who all contributed to the book.

The book’s recipes are all plant-based, with only vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, legumes and fruits (no added oils or sugar). The ingredients are also minimally processed, if processed at all. (Note: this isn’t a completely gluten-free cookbook or a candida-only cookbook, so you’ll find regular wheat flour and higher-glycemic sweeteners, like maple syrup or molasses, in the recipes).

Chapters include Basics, Flavor Boosters & Condiments; Amazing Appetizers & Snacks; Delicious Dips, Spreads & Sauces; Bountiful Breakfast; Joyful Juices and Smoothies; Scrumptious Salads; Savory Soups, Bowls & Stews; Best Burgers, Loaves & Meatballs; Wraps, Pizzas & Sandwiches; Outstanding One Pot & One-Dish Meals; Perfect Pasta & Grains; Vibrant Veggies; Sensational Sweets; Charming Chocolates; Nibbles in the Classroom; and 7 Days of Meal Plans.

Some of the recipes I can’t wait to try from the 250 in the book include “Cheese” Fondue; Mississippi “Caviar”; Kiwi Pineapple Salsa; Chocolate Zucchini Muffins; Gazpacho Salad; Chickpea Noodle Soup; Sweet Potato Meatballs; Mexican Vegetable Pizza; Corn Casserole; One Pot Thai Coconut Curry Tofu; Kale and Spinach Stuffed Pasta Shells; Tomato Basil Steel Cut Oats (mmm!); Insanely Delicious Cinnamon Rolls; and the Very Berry Crumble.

Jyl has kindly granted permission to reprint Nele’s recipe here. These will even keep, layered between plastic, for up to 3 days in the fridge (that’s what I did with them).

So go ahead and cook up a batch so you can have your own gluten-free soft tortillas, too. Now that I’ve made them (twice so far), I don’t know how I did without them for so long!
