Does anyone have a whole wheat tortilla recipe?  DD1 is soy free, but DH looooooooves tortillas, so I need to have some that she can eat.  I was buying the one brand I could find, but I need to tighten up my food budget by about $400 next month yikes2.gif and they are pretty pricey.

 

I've tried some recipes online, and they all turned out pretty gross.

Most tortillas in our store are wheat flour and not much else. Are you finding them made with soybean oil? We are gluten free so I make these tortillas: http://spiceandmore.wordpress.com/2009/08/17/an-exciting-discovery/ They taste different than wheat, but the whole family loves them.

Yeah, the tortillas I see everywhere have a HUUUUUGE list of ingredients and hydrogenated soybean oil. It's just the one brand I can find without it, and it's super expensive.

 

I'll have to see if she'll eat the mung bean ones.

So when I was at our grocery store I decided to check out the ingredient lists on the tortillas. We live in Tucson so there are a lot of locally made choices that are wheat, water, vegetable shortening and that's about it. But the national brands. Wow.

 

Something interesting that I noted. We've been gluten free since March. Recently I've had a bit of wheat when eating out, but none at home (for our daughter's benefit.) When I was in the tortilla area and when I walked by the bakery, I couldn't stand the smell of the bread. It was awful. It just smelled nasty and chemically.

I know, isn't it crazy?  I don't buy bread, it's just so, ugh. If I want it, I make it, or I buy really high quality. Dh is a different story though....

Most corn tortillas at the grocery store are soy-free.
