These have got to be the easiest grain free, gluten free dairy free and yeast free tortillas you will ever try. Super bendy, soft, and sweet. Just 2 ingredients and they are both technically vegetables!
2 ingredients and both veggies? REALLY?
Yes! Cassava and roasted butternut squash in fact.
What is Cassava flour made from?
Cassava flour is made from cassava root, it is a starchy root vegetable that is used widely in African, South American and Caribean cultures. They use it many different dishes, both sweet dishes like cassava cookies and cakes. As well as savoury dishes like stews.
The flour is created by peeling, grounding and then drying the vegetable root before being made into a flour. It can often be mistaken with Tapioca, which is just the starch of the root. Tapioca is made by squeezing the liquid from the cassava therefore creating a dried starch.
Does cassava flour taste nice?
Recently cassava flour has been getting huge buzz around the gluten free, grain free world. Cassava flour has the ability to act very similar to regular wheat flour. Some even say you can sometimes replace cassava flour 1:1 to wheat flour. It is very soft and mild in taste.
I have started using a lot more recently after experimenting with it a few months ago.We as a family are now hooked. I have made the BEST brownies with it, cookies AND these amazing 2 ingredient tortillas. Having a son that has gluten issues and a mum whose currently gluten free for health reasons – we needed wraps! An easy solution to make lunches, breakfast and family taco nights!
Store bought gluten free wraps are pretty garbage. They never taste decent not matter how much money I spend. Not to mention the millions of unknown ingredients they add to make it look like the real deal. I was dying to have a homemade CLEAN version.…
