  • Primal Tortilla Recipe



    Wondering if anyone has a Primal tortilla recipe. Or primal-ish. Or, whatever.


    Found these:

    The first uses tapioca flour, 'gluten free' bread mix and xanthan gum. The second one looks closer to what I want, but has too many ingredients for my liking.


    I'm probably just going to end up messing around with some coconut flour, eggs and xanthan gum and see what I can come up with. Fundamentally, because there's no gluten, doing these types of things are more difficult to get everything to bind together properly - thus the xanthan gum.


    Unless, of course, someone has a recipe that works

    Ever heard about the "flaquitas"?

        Just checked out the flaquita article. Not exactly food in its natural state, but then again, neither is pemmican! I'd be willing to give it a taste test.

          I'd love to hear how it works out for you guys. I've been harassing Son Of Grok to work with me and invent some primal Nachos.

            Well, my first go was mostly a failure. And I tried lighting my apartment on fire. Wasn't paying close enough attention to the parchment paper and it ended up catching on fire. Fun.


            On the other hand, I have a nice biscuit-ish recipe. The recipe made nice little biscuits that were just like normal biscuits. It'd probably work for pizza crust, too, but you probably wouldn't be able to hold up the pizza.


            While I considered this originally, coming up with a method to flatten them is also difficult - hence the parchment paper.


            Oh well, time to do some more research and try again.

              I had the bright idea of putting some flax meal in, maybe just coconut flour + oil + xanthan gum would work better.


              Guess I'll have to try that tomorrow.

                You have to have a dehydrator for this one (or just set your oven to 105 F)

                  How about a thin omelet? I made some fairly successful pancakes with egg and flax ans baking powder. You could do that very thin like crepes.


                  Or, just wrap filling in large lettuce leaf.

                  It's grandma, but you can call me sir.
