Flax Tortillas

18 Aug

Last night for family room tailgating the Seahawks game, Esposita made a gluten free tortilla that was simply out of bounds. Even the people who like flour loved it. For those of you eating Paleo, or who simply want to cut down on your gluten and wheat, listen up…

(To our dear friend, Lauren who is allergic to flax – don’t try this at home!)

1. Take 1/4 cup ground flax seed
2. Mix with 6 tablespoons of hot water. Mix to egg-like texture.
3. Mix that with 1 cup ground flax seed (yes -again)
4. Add 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
5. Knead and divide into 4 tortillas
6. 30-40 seconds on each side on the grill
7. A little salt and any seasonings you like. She added some homemade Goya sauce. You cad add salsa or other Mexican style mixes.

That’s it. Esposita made a double batch since we had fellow tailgaters. We did have other homemade tortillas from Central Market, yet Esposita’s flax tortillas were a hit!

P.S. recipe listed on Top 10 Paleo breads online…

Eat well,

    I can assure you with this poem, I will not try these in my home. Though I hold you very dear, to this flax I won’t come near. I leave you with the simple facts, I will always skip the food with flax. 🙂

      I do not like green eggs and flax, I do not like them Captain Jack…
