I’m one of the lucky ones in that I don’t have any food allergies or intolerances that I am aware of. I have no reason to avoid gluten so I don’t seek out gluten free products, however, many of my dishes happen to be gluten free just because so many good foods don’t contain gluten.
Whenever I run across new products and foods with which I am unfamiliar I am inclined to give them a try, especially if they are made from whole foods. Found these brown rice tortillas at the supermarket and tried them out today.
These brown rice tortillas looked extremely fragile and I was curious if they could formed into bowls. They didn’t limber up very much when heated in the microwave and had to be pressed between two tart molds to form them. I’m surprised they held together as well as they did. I suspect that the reason they are sold in the frozen foods section is that, frozen, they are less likely to fall apart before leaving the store.
The tortilla bowls baked up nice and crispy and didn’t get soggy even with salad in them, however, they were devoid of any flavor whatsoever.
The salad ingredients were:
- dark red kidney beans
- red onion
- jalapeño peppers
- cherry tomatoes
- pimento stuffed green olives
- smoked paprika
- coriander powder
