Vegan Gluten-free Sweet Potato Tortilla Wraps

I love taco, and I have searched high and low after a good gluten-free wrap recipe and after a bit of experimenting I got a pretty nice result. The sweet potato adds a richness in the flavor and makes the tortillas look a lot cooler, and provided you do not over-stuff these they are easy enough to wrap. I used a combination of the gluten-free flours I found in my kitchen, so you can probably use whatever flour you have. If you do not have gluten allergies/sensitivity you can use whole wheat flour instead, which will make the dough ALOT easier to work with, and you can make a lot thinner tortillas making them easier to wrap as well. I freeze these in individual bags, so I can just grab one and throw it in the oven for a few minutes when I do not feel like making it from scratch.

Ingredients, makes 4 big wraps:
  • 4 medium sized sweet potatoes
  • 100g buckwheat
  • 30g cornstarch
  • 1 tsp salt

  • Chop the sweet potatoes into chucks and steam until they are cooked through. Choose for yourself whether or not you want to keep the skin on, if not peel the potatoes before steaming.
  • Start adding the flour and mix until a creamy thick paste. If you use whole wheat flour, start with adding 1/2 cup and gradually add more while blending, until you got a smooth dough.
  • Start preheating the oven at 190 degrees Celsius/379 degrees Fahrenheit. If you are going for gluten-free tortillas then the consistency of the dough should be like a cake batter. You should take a piece of dough (about the size of your palm) and put it on a baking sheet, and using a spatula, shape the dough until you have a thin flat tortilla, and repeat until you have 4-6 tortillas. They should be in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly golden and crispy edges. If you use whole wheat flour you might need additional flour to prevent the dough from sticking, and can easily use a rolling pin for a better result, but the same method for baking apply here.

So there you have it, healthy vegan sweet potato tortillas! Serve it with chopped up vegetables, spicy salsa and maybe dish up some "taco meat" by using TVP mince/other vegan mince and use my healthy homemade taco spice mix to season it.
