Naturally Gluten-Free: 5 Flatbreads from Around the World
There are many places in the world where, at least historically, wheat hasn’t been a major crop. In these places, we find delicious flatbreads made from things like cornmeal masa and fermented lentils. Here are five of our favorites to make at home.
1. Corn Tortillas from Bless Her Heart – Can you believe that all you need to make corn tortillas is finely ground masa (corn flour) and water? Fresh tortillas are great for wrapping around our favorite taco fillings, and day-old tortillas can be crisped into chips or added to warm soups.
2. Masala Dosa – Rice and Lentil Crêpes from Epicurious – A staple of south Indian cuisine, these tender wrappers made of rice and lentils are delicious with curries of every kind.
3. Injera from Chef in You – Injera is a spongy Ethiopian flatbread made with teff flour and well worth the several days it takes to make the dough and let it ferment. It’s used almost like an edible plate; the edges are torn off to scoop up the food piled in the middle.
