Oat and Rice Tortillas

I've been experimenting with Gluten Free recipes and came up with a good tortilla recipe! I made 5 different tortilla versions and My Soldier and I both picked this one. It's simple and the tortillas are bendable and taste good!  
The 5 versions.. all rice, all oat, 1/2 & 1/2, cooked rice, not cooked rice, oil or no oil...

INGREDIENTS for 4 large or 6 medium tortillas
 1 c. cooked white or brown rice
1/4 c. water
4 t. oil
1/2 t. salt
1-1 1/4 c. oat flour

We found an even better way to make them :) 
Before you cook the rice (blend it up) then cook it using the amount of water the recipe called for. It will be like cream of rice cereal.

ground up rice (not rice flour)

oat flour on top of cooked rice mixture

½ c. brown rice, blend until fine (not flour) in a blender
1 ¼ c. water
2 t. oil
¼ t. salt
Place all the above ingredients into a pan, bring to boil, then simmer for 10-20 min (or until soft).
Mix in ½ c. oat flour (or more) until it’s a soft dough.  Divide dough into 8-10 balls.
10 balls will create 6" tortillas.

If using this updated version, skip to **SHAPING THE TORTILLAS**  below and continue following the directions... :)

GF Steel Cut oats ground into 1 c. of oat flour

     Put all but the oat flour in a blender and puree.

Scrape it into a bowl and slowly add the oat flour until it isn't sticky any more. 
Now divide the dough into 4-6 balls.

 Divide into balls and place on counter with bowl upside down over them so they don't dry out.

      Take a empty plastic cereal bag, open it up so it's flat, wash and dry it. (It's reusable)   Sprinkle a little oat flour on one side and place a ball of dough that you've pressed with your fingers into a 3-inch circle. Sprinkle a little more oat flour on top and fold over the plastic.

 Now using a rolling pin, roll it out into a 8-inch circle. (I like to lift up the plastic after each time I roll the rolling pin back and forth. It helps it roll out more even and come off easier!)

    Carefully lift off one side of plastic, turn it over and repeat with the other side. (I like to peal off one side of plastic and place the tortilla on one hand, using the other hand to carefully peal off the plastic) 

 Cook on a medium-hi skillet or 350 degree griddle for 1 minute, turn over and cook again for 1-2 minutes. Place in a tortilla warmer or on a plate and cover with a clean dish towel until ready to serve.

Hope you enjoy them!

  1. Oh my Heavens, I cannot WAIT to try this one out. Do I have to have a wheat grinder to make the oats into flour though? :( And... you meant to say rice in the blender, right? Ahh! I'm so excited!!

  2. Hey girl!!!
    You don't need a grinder to make your flour. I just use my Tribest blender (like a Magic Bullet)with the grinding blade. You could use a coffee grinder too. Thats how I grind all my 'non-wheat' flour so it won't get contaminated.
    ... Yes, you puree the cooked rice in the blender with the water, oil and salt. Let me know what ya think!
