Gluten Free Lefse (Scandinavian or Norwegian Flatbread)

Image: Gluten Free Lefse

Lefse is a soft flatbread, similar to a tortilla. This gluten free lefse recipe is no different. It is often made of potatoes, however you may use gluten-free potato buds (see link below for a gluten free brand). There are many different versions of lefse. The Norwegian version is made of flour, usually potato, cream, sometimes lard, and cooked on a griddle. Special tools are usually used to make lefse, even gluten free lefse. Most people use a griddle, a rolling pin cover, and a lefse stick to turn them over. However, if you get creative you can make them with other tools and pans (see Tips section below.) When using fresh potatoes, you need to use a ricer. However, this recipe calls for Potato Buds instead of fresh potatoes. I know not everyone owns a ricer. I will publish a recipe for lefse made with fresh potatoes another day. Meanwhile, enjoy this recipe!

For a similar recipe, not calling for boxed potatoes, see my Soft Gluten Free Naan (Indian Flat Bread). It has received many raved reviews.

Soft Gluten Free Flour Tortilla Recipe (Commercial Yeast-Free Naan Bread)

I already have a few gluten free tortilla recipes:¬†Low-Sodium Gluten Free Tortillas (my first attempt – very similar to Trader Joe’s brand – chewy and a little stiff), Gluten Free Naan Bread (so good, but is thick and calls for instant yeast), and Soft Whole Grain Gluten Free Wraps – Tortillas¬†(when you use Expandex modified tapioca starch these are the best!). However, I will continue to work on a soft flour tortilla using easily accessible and natural ingredients without the use of yeast. Today, I present you with another soft gluten free tortilla recipe.

Soft Gluten Free Naan (Indian Flatbread)

Oven-Baked Gluten Free Naan

Naan is luscious Indian flatbread, similar to a tortilla, but thicker. With one simple alteration, you can roll or pat them out thinner to use as tortillas. The flavor and texture are so good that they should be a sin to eat. By far, this gluten free naan is my most raved about recipe. People liken them to their gluten counterpart. Naan is full of possibilities.

Commercial Yeast-Free Gluten Free Flatbread (Contains Yogurt)

While watching the Paula Deen Show, I saw her grilling some flatbread, made from a homemade dough. I just had to create a gluten free flatbread recipe and give it a go, myself! My Facebook survey resulted in majority people wanting a yeast-free gluten free recipe and preferred baked (soft), rather than grilled (crispy). So, that is exactly what I created! I was so excited how beautiful it looked, but it tasted just as good! The bread varies in height between 1″ to 1 1/2″. You can use this gluten free flatbread for sandwiches and it makes a great replacement for sourdough bread at the dinner table. You can dip it in olive oil and balsamic. I made sandwiches for dinner with chicken breasts, grilled onion and bell pepper (hubby had cheese, too) and created a balsamic dressing to coat the inside of the bread. I wanted to add avocado, but it would have been just too high for me. It was delish! – my new fave! Enjoy!

Yeast-Free Gluten Free Focaccia Bread

This gluten free focaccia bread is commercial yeast-free. If you are allergic to yeast you may try substituting the apple cider vinegar with a bit of 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar. I haven’t tried it myself, but any high acidic ingredient will do, lemon juice, etc. This is a hearty recipe, much like regular focaccia. If you’re looking for something lighter, which contains yeast, try my newest Gluten Free Focaccia Bread Recipe. Meanwhile, enjoy!
