This month we’re going Mexican. Tortillas and Bean
topped tortillas both from The
Yeast Connection Cookbook. We know it’s hard
to find ethnic recipes to fit your food plan, but these
recipes were especially created with your diet restrictions
in mind. Enjoy.
1 1/4 Cup flour (not starch): amaranth, buckwheat, corn,
millet, milo, oat, quinoa, rye
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water, room temperature
1/2 - 1 teaspoon oil, optional (use especially with
quinoa and millet)
Whisk l cup of flour and the salt together in a bowl.
Make a “well” in the center and pour in
the oil and water. Stir several strokes with a fork
until the dough clumps together in a ball.
Preheat a large griddle or skillet. Scatter the remaining
1/4 cup of lfour on a bread board or piece of wax paper
( Note: wax paper may contain traces of corn starch,
avoid if you are sensitive to this.) Break off balls
of dough the size of a golf ball. Roll them in flour.
Flatten with your hand, turning often to keep them floured.
Roll each tortilla thinner with a rolling pin, check
both sides to see they’re well floured and then
bake them on the hot griddle. Use no oil.
Bake about 3 minutes on each side. Put the baked tortillas
on wire racks or lay them on cotton towels.
4 tortillas, baked (see above recipe)
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup chopped onions, optional
1 clove garlic, minced, optional
1/2 small jalapeno pepper, more or less to add spicy
2 cups of pinto beans with their liquid
1-2 tablespoons lime juice, if you are eating fruit
1/8-1/4 teaspoon vitamin c crystals, unbuffered, corn-free
dissolved in 2 tablespoons of water
1/2 cup onion, chopped
l large red, yellow or green bell pepper
Put two tortillas on each plate and set aside. In a
large skillet sauté the 3/4 cup onions in olive
oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add the garlic
and jalapeno; cook few minutes longer. Before the veggies
brown, add the beans and their liquid.
Using a fork or potato masher mash about half the beans.
Stir occasionally while they simmer. In 15-20 minutes
the beans become thick enough to spread.
Meanwhile mash the avocado and season it to taste with
the lime juice or c crystals in water. Have ready the
1/2 cup chopped onions and slice the bell pepper into
To assemble: Spread the bean mixture on the tortillas.
Top each with a dollop of mashed avocado, 2 tablespoons
chopped onion and 2 pepper rings. Ole!
