For the love of Falafel (Part 2): Pita Bread GF
Food related ideas and plans excite me. So did the idea of creating a Lebanese themed dinner at home, complete with Falafel, hummus, tabbouleh and Pita Bread… err, what? Isn’t Pita Bread a high gluten item? It is. And, I tested the hundreds of Gluten free wraps and rolls available in the market. To say the best, I wouldn’t deem them right for human consumption.
So then, I embarked on a research project in the library and the virtual world. Most recipes called for umpteen number of ingredients from Xanthan gum to a mix of 5 kinds of flours. One of my food philosophy is, the more number of ingredients in a recipe, the more questionable will your final product be.
This is when I decided to turn to mom (like I always do when I’m battling with life’s challenges, culinary or non-culinary). And as always, she had the answers!!
This is a two-ingredient recipe for a gluten free pita bread, using only buckwheat flour and potatoes! And, even though I necessarily HAVE to be gluten-free, the husband doesn’t and even he has declared that he is never going back to the regular flour one!
