Gluten free turkey fajitas for tea.

I am finding more and more ways to adapt recipes to make different things for eating, and its handy to experiment on a night when the children are not here then if it goes pear shaped hubby and I will make something else.

So tonight I decided to try gluten free tortillas', this is one of daughter No2's meals of choice if she is coming over for a meal and as she is gluten free so thought this is worth experimenting with.

From what I have been reading tortillas are basically just 2 parts flour to one part water with a bit of salt and sugar for flavour, so how hard can they be I ask myself?

 I mixed 2 cups of doves farm flour and as we all know this stuff is not quite as supple as normal SR flour so  I sieved in 2 tsp Xanthan gum and 1 tsp baking powder along with 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp sugar and then mixed with 1 cup warm water.

I divided the mixture into eight bits and rolled them out flat then put them in a lightly oiled frying pan for 2 minutes each side, they bubbled up and browned slightly.

I fried up some turkey breast with a bit of salt, pepper and tamarind, and also some red onions and tomatoes. Once it was all cooked I spread the tortilla with sour cream and salsa sauce, added a bit of grated cheese and put some turkey and onions on and rolled them up. They tasted very nice, but were not quite as pliable as shop bought ones. Next time I will try adding a teaspoon of glycerine or cooking oil to see if they are slightly more pliable.

The tamarind added a nice flavour to the turkey, and the finished result was very nice.

The highlighted products were supplied by Healthy Supplies for me to use as I see fit.
