Remember Monday’s lunch? If you would like the recipe for the curried sweet potatoes and pea wrap, it is over at Iris’ blog The Daily Dietribe. Iris is lovely. I adopted her as part of Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger in July and it was tons of fun reading through the archives and choosing recipes. And if you are coming from Iris’ blog, welcome! I am so glad you came to visit. Here is the lunchbox that the curried sweet potatoes and peas were part of:
I was really excited that Iris asked me to be part of her guest blog series on Gluten-Free Fall Specials this month while she moves to Seattle from the East Coast to start graduate school. In fact, Iris moved yesterday! If you have not checked out Iris’ blog yet, she writes really thoughtful posts (such as this one on blogging, food and self-care) as well as some really awesome recipes (two of my favorites are her Sweet Sesame Noodles and Quinoa Banana Muffins and I still need to make her lentil quinoa burgers). Also, writing the guest post for Iris is what started this whole lunchbox project, and so far lots of you have enjoyed it.
Finally, I had a question about how I work with the Food for Life brown rice tortilla to keep them soft and pretty, like here:
It is not foolproof, but I think the key for using these tortillas is to run them under water so they are a bit damp (but not soaked through or breaking) and then toast in a dry frying pan on high heat on both sides. I cannot remember where I first saw the tip to wet the tortillas, but I think it might have been over at the Gluten-Free Goddess, because Karina is brilliant like that. I should add that I use this approach regardless of whether I eat the tortilla right away or am preparing my lunch for the next day – in fact, the tortilla you see above was prepared that way, made into the wrap, and put in the fridge for 12 hours before the picture was taken.
Iris’ Gluten-Free Fall Specials has lots of great recipes and ideas from the following bloggers:
I do have a lunchbox post for today and will be back to share it with you later in the day.
