Rudi’s Gluten-Free Tortillas

By | Aug 22, 2012

When I caught wind that Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery was developing a new product to launch in time for back-to-school, I wondered what it could be. They already had bread, pizza crusts, hamburger buns, and hot dog rolls covered. What would possibly be next?

Ah, tortillas. As a lover of all things wrapped, I should have known that this would be a high priority in the product pipeline. Who doesn’t love a good cheese quesadilla or grilled chicken wrap?

While there are many naturally gluten-free corn tortillas on the market, Rudi’s Gluten-Free Tortillas take inspiration from the big flour tortillas, including flavored varieties. The Gluten-Free Tortillas use a variety of whole grain flours, including amaranth, millet, quinoa, and teff, so they have a heartier flavor and texture than corn-only varieties.

I sampled all three flavors: Plain, Spinach, and Fiesta.

The Plain had a slightly sweet and salty, almost buttery taste, but nothing that overpowers the flavors of what you put in the wrap. I filled mine with homemade tuna salad, carrots, and kale, which made a delicious combination but got a bit messy as I reached the ends.

Tuna, kale, and carrots in a Plain tortilla- yum!

The Spinach flavor has less of that salty-sweet taste. It doesn’t taste purely like spinach, but you can tell there’s something in there. I think this flavor would be perfect for a gluten-free chicken Caesar wrap (remember to check the ingredients in your dressing!) or filled with hummus, veggies, and bean sprouts.

The Fiesta flavor has a bit of zing. True to its name, this is ideal for Mexican dishes. I’d try making Chef Oonagh’s Mexican Lasagna with these gluten-free tortillas.

Overall, the Gluten-Free Tortillas softened nicely in the microwave, but tended to harden up quicker than their wheat-based counterparts. If you’re like me and go heavy on the filling, pack a fork in case some of your filling falls out while you eat.
