We are going to visit family this weekend and need to be prepared with food for my lovely Gluten Free/Dairy Free diet and Littlest Miss's dye free diet. We discussed possible options with family and decided to go with tacos. Therefore, today I am making myself some corn tortillas for the occasion.
I found a recipe here that is very simple and easy to follow.
I have a flour tortilla press that is electric and does the same basic thing that a corn tortilla press does. I covered the cold plates of the press with plastic wrap and pressed the dough in that. You can also place your dough ball between the plastic wrap and press it down with the bottom of a small pot. (got that idea from a youtube video on making tortillas)
Then I placed the tortilla on a hot cast iron pan, that is dry; without any oil or butter. Cook it for about 1 minute and then flip and cook for 30 seconds or so. They seem stiff at first but if you put them in a linen cloth inside a glass dish they get nice and soft and PERFECT for tacos or any other meal.
I spread some dairy free butter on it and dribbled some homemade peach jam inside. THAT was delicious. Most of the time I DO NOT feel like I am going without or missing anything by doing this GF/DF diet. Instead, I am getting more creative.
Get creative with your food today!!
