I met Baker Dan a year ago, he is the author of
“Beating Arthritis: Alternative Cooking” . The book is amazing. It’s about so much more than just beating Arthritis (which is a feat in itself). It’s also a gluten-free, dairy-free and super healthy cookbook.
He sent out this email with a recipe for healthy tortillas.
“Light Tortillas is the recipe that I am the most proud of in my debut cookbook. I was
struggling for a long with a tortilla that could serve as wrap. The secret of
the recipe is in the liquid dough and the way that it is cooked. The trick was
to find the right amount of liquids added to the fine corn flour.”
