Simply stir up the short list of ingredients into a crumbly dough and then smoosh and kneed together with your hands into about 12 golf-ball sized dough balls. If the dough seems way too crumbly add a tiny splash of water to see if this helps – but make sure not to overdo it or the dough will become sticky and impossible to roll out.

You can form the tortillas in a press, if you have one. But, I simply use a silicone baking sheet and then top the dough ball with wax paper for easy rolling. You can use a mold (like a salad plate or large jar lid) to shape your tortillas, or just go free-form! After that, cooking is just a matter of heating up a cast iron skillet to medium-high and then tossing a tortilla in, one at a time, for about 30 seconds on each side! Gluten Free Pumpkin Turmeric Tortillas arranged

Leftover tortillas can be kept in the fridge for a week. I also like to cut into wedges, brush with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt before baking to crispness at 400 F for about 5 minutes. Viola, homemade Gluten-Free Pumpkin Turmeric Tortilla Chips – dip THOSE in your guacamole!

  1. I use Carol Fenster’s blend of 3 parts sorghum, 3 parts potato starch and 2 parts tapioca flour. I’ve been GF for 20 years and do all my baking (Eng. muffins. bagels, breads, etc.). I’ll try this recipe tonight but will sub. mashed sweet potato for pumpkin. Had an abundant crop this year!

    • Ahh, thanks for sharing your fav blend — I’ll try it out! And, I bet the sweet potato makes a great sub, impressed that you grow your own!
