For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been perfecting a grain free sandwich wrap. The reason? I did a Whole 30, and my stomach stopped hurting. Yay! Being completely grain free always makes my stomach stop hurting. But I was missing easy meals like sandwiches. So I needed a grain free sandwich something. Continue reading
It’s amazing to me how many gluten free recipes you can find if you’re willing to step outside your culture. Koreans have mung bean pancakes, Mexicans have corn tortillas, Indians have lentil dosas, and I’ve discovered a new treasure trove of gluten free. Jewish Passover Recipes!! I haven’t really looked into it, but apparently Jewish people don’t eat wheat during Passover. So cool. They’ve been not eating wheat for so long, that they’ve come up with some amazing gluten free substitutions for bread. And since I’m on a quest for gluten free bread this week, I’ve borrowed from this Ancient culture. I love this recipe, I’m calling it a tortilla, because tortilla sells at our house, but I guess it’s actually a crepe (and it’ll be called a crepe when my mom visits. My mom loves crepes). It’s fast, easy to make and uses ingredients that aren’t too hard to find. I whipped up the whole thing in a blender and poured it into a lightly greased frying pan. Easy Peasy.
I think everyone who goes gluten free begins a quest. The quest for the perfect bread. The perfect bread is our Holy Grail. We buy pre-packaged gluten free frozen bread, only to have it break apart in the toaster. We make gluten free biscuits from mixes and they’re dry, salty and sandy. Our tortillas crumble. Our sandwiches disintegrate. Without the gluten in wheat, bread needs weird things like xanthan gum. And even if it does contain xanthan gum, it still doesn’t really taste or feel like bread.
Okay, so the perfect gluten free bread might not be out there. But there has to be some way to satiate that bread craving. Or at least hold our sandwich stuff together.
This week I’m going to be sharing some of my new favorite bread replacements. They’re not bread, but they really get rid of that, “I just want to eat something normal” feeling. Continue reading
