Recently I was asked by the makers of Goodbye Gluten Wraps to try out their plain and multigrain gluten-free wraps. I usually just purchase corn tortillas to make wraps or tacos since they are usually pretty cheap and easy to find at any store. However, I guess there are times you need to make a larger wrap and these would come in handy because they are very similar to regular flour tortillas.
Unlike many gluten free baked goods, there is no need to refrigerate. However, after a few days the tortillas became a little dry and broke apart when I tried to fold them.
I decided to make a wrap with ground turkey, some fresh veggies (squash, greens, edamame and tomatoes) with an asian inspired sauce that consisted of a mixture of garlic, olive oil, gluten-free soy sauce, and ginger.
The outcome was quite delicious, however, you can see where the wrap broke apart a little when it was folded. The tortilla tastes great so I didn’t mind that it broke apart a bit. I began wrapping with tin foil so it helped the wrap stay together. Each wrap was 150 calories. That is a little high considering 2 corn tortillas are around 80-90 calories for both.
I also tried the multigrain wrap and it was much less dry and easier to fold.
I liked the flavor of both but being able to fold the wrap and hold it in my hand with out it falling apart gave the multigrain flour tortilla an advantage. I didn’t try steaming or heating the wraps in the pan, perhaps that may have helped the plain wrap become a little more malleable. The multigrain tortillas have about 160 calories. Both have great flavor though.
*Update: These wraps can be found at Publix.
Do you have a favorite alternative to bread or tortillas?
