Gluten Free Wild Rice Tortillas

IMG_4223

This recipe is very allergy-friendly. It is free of gluten, eggs, and gums such as xanthan and guar gum. I did use butter in this recipe but you could substitute with something casein free if needed.

I have always had a hard time achieving a texture that can be used as a tortilla or wrap without the xanthan gum, but when our favorite store-bought brown rice tortillas added xanthan gum to the recipe, I knew I had to get creative.  I found success with a blend of the flours below.  My family actually likes these tortillas better than their store-bought brown rice tortillas.

I made these flours using freshly ground flour from my new WonderMill Grain Mill. I feel good about serving my family freshly ground flours, and you can’t beat the texture of the flour the WonderMill makes! In the past, I have used my Vitamix to grind down wild rice. This works well enough, but the texture is still a little grainy. With the WonderMill we get a much better texture without the wear and tear on my Vitamix!

Grain Mill Wagon Challenge Experience: I was hesitant to accept this challenge. I am very busy with a family and a full practice, and taking on something new sounded daunting. After all, I could just continue using my Vitamix to grind my grains, right? But I do love a challenge. And I do love my grains. So I jumped on board and boy am I glad I did. I love my WonderMill! It was a piece of cake to figure out and operate and I love how well it works! I am very particular about the tools I use in the kitchen. They have to meet my standards. There is absolutely no dread factor in using the WonderMill. I love it and don't know how I ever lived without it. Thank you so much for the invitation to participate in this challenge! It has been fun for the entire family and we are so happy with the results!

  1. Yay! I’m always happy to find recipes that don’t use the gums. They sound good!

  2. Thanks Marianne! It is hard to find a good gum-free recipe! That is why I often have to invent them myself. Thanks for stopping by!
