Low Sodium Gluten Free Tortilla Recipe

Gluten-Free Soft Corn Tortillas

Last Updated on

I was just shocked to find that the gluten free tortilla mix I had purchased online was overloaded with sodium. I decided to create my own gluten free tortilla recipe. Making fajita sized tortilla from the mix had 640 mg of sodium. Are they trying to kill us? The low carb tortillas I used to purchase had over 300 mg and I found that too high. Using sea salt makes it healthier, but for myself, sea salt still causes me to retain water. The mix I had purchased also contained lard. I know that many people advocate cooking with natural animal fat, but I prefer to watch my fat intake as well as calories. I was determined to create a recipe similar to the mixture I had purchased and do so successfully today! Many people online seem to have a problem finding a decent recipe, therefore, I am pretty darn proud of myself, as this was my first attempt and it was an experimental recipe.

I NO LONGER USE THIS RECIPE. TRY ONE OF MY NEWER RECIPES IN THE GLUTEN FREE TORTILLA RECIPES CATEGORY.

Chicken Tostada Over Rice Recipe

Last Updated on

A while back I had made some chicken, tostada style. My husband eats gluten and he had some tortillas, but I was out my homemade gluten free tortillas. I happened to have some left over rice in the frig and voila! – an easy gluten free dinner recipe. I wasn’t happy with the photo and never posted it, but thought it is best to share and you can make your dish look more attractive. I like to make this recipe nice and saucy, adding much more chicken broth than a regular tostada. You make your own broth when cooking the chicken, therefore, you save money, too!

Last Updated on

With only three ingredients, this gluten free appetizer recipe is so easy to make, yet your guests will think you slaved in the kitchen all day. Like most green leafy vegetables, fresh basil is loaded with Vitamin K. The small and medium sized leaves make for a nice tender appetizer. Just remember to not pick the leaves of the plants that are mid flowering, as the leaves will be bitter. The plants that are flowering should be topped off. The flower makes a nice centerpiece on the serving dish. Continue reading “Fresh Basil Leaf Appetizers with a Kick”

Vegan Basil Rice Pilaf or Basil Fried Rice

Last Updated on

It was time to harvest some of my fresh basil. I already had made basil appetizers, but I needed more uses for basil. I had about a cup of left-over rice and thought, “A rice pilaf recipe!” I have made quite a few rice pilaf recipes which some I liked and others I really didn’t. This one tasted amazing! It is also very easy and fast to make. The one thing I did different this time is to not use a chicken or beef broth, which makes this a vegan rice pilaf recipe. Instead, I added additional extra virgin olive oil. You can make a meal of it by adding egg for protein, if you are not on a vegan diet. You will see photos of both versions below. This is a must try! Continue reading “Vegan Basil Rice Pilaf or Basil Fried Rice”

Gluten Free Banana Fritters and Mango Fritters

Gluten Free Banana and Mango Fritters

Last Updated on

I had never made banana fritters, had never eaten gluten free banana fritters, and hadn’t eaten any in decades. However, I was watching a cooking show that provided me with some tips on deep frying batter which makes these gluten free banana fritters (or mango) nice and crispy, and prevents the oil from penetrating deep into the fruit. This is a light crispy batter. Very yummy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Banana Fritters and Mango Fritters”
