on the savory side...

tortillas and matzoh!

GF Vegan flour tortillas

1 c sweet rice flour
1/2 c tapioca starch plus more for dusting
1/2 c cornmeal
1 t xanthan gum
1 t baking powder
1 t salt

add 1 c boiling water and mix well. the mixture will thicken as you go,
as the sweet rice flour is turning into mochi. dust a clean surface with
tapioca starch and roll out your tortillas. cook on a dry hot skillet, a
minute or so on each side.

GF Matzoh

1 c garfava flour
1 c sorghum flour
1/2 c potato flour
1/2 c tapioca flour
1/4 t xanthan gum
2 T flax meal
1 t salt

add 1 1/4 c water

mix well, knead on a clean floured surface.
roll out into sheets of matzoh
bake at 500 on parchment paper for 5-6 minutes, flipping halfway
through. if the matzoh flexes, it is not done cooking. will store,
wrapped for a week or more.
