I would say Rudi’s Gluten-Free Tortillas are my favorite thing since sliced (gluten-free) bread, except I kind of prefer them to my bread options. Eating gluten-free and vegan means that the vast majority of gluten-free products are off limits for me because they contain eggs. While many manufacturers go the gluten-free dairy-free route, they still rely on eggs for integrity of many products.
Not so with Rudi’s Gluten-Free Tortillas, which the nice people at Rudi’s sent to me free of charge. I had not had tortillas in several months, seeing as my go-to option was now off-limits. I was thrilled to see that, as with their other gluten-free products, Rudi’s is GFCo certified. The best two parts? No eggs! (also, no dairy). And the fact that these tortillas fold, like normal tortillas. They fold straight out of the fridge, but hold up to a little warming in a pan as well. I used one to make myself a lazy Saturday lunch recently – tempeh with scallions, carrots, celery, celery salt, and this quick-to-make cashew mayo.
With some market fresh strawberries and Artisana Cacao Bliss, I made the following dessert treat to go with my smoothie for a post-market Sunday breakfast:
Here is a close-up – note the pliability of the tortillas:
Basically, I am in love. These tortillas are just starting to be distributed nationally, so I have yet to see them at any grocery store. You can use this form to request them at your local store. The tortillas ship frozen, so it is that much more impressive that they are so pliable and easy to work with.
A final note on flavors – I like the plain ones best. They can go sweet or savory and have a shorter ingredients list (the amounts of maltodextrin and starches are pretty low, and there are no added spices of flavorings). That said, the Fiesta and Spinach tortillas are super-pretty, so they might be a nice choice when you entertain, seeing as you can actually plan on serving these tortillas ahead of time because they will not feel like disintegrating at the last minutes. Also, they are nice and pliable and completely worth serving to your gluten-eating as well as your gluten-free friends, which is always a good thing.
Yes, these tortillas are completely a new favorite thing. I hope they become available locally soon, or at least online. I am usually against paying shipping fees, but I would totally order these and pay shipping just to have more.
