When Diane of the Whole Gang invited me to participate in her 30 days to Easy Gluten-free Living, I said yes immediately. I had recently been impressed by the latest cool gluten-free convenience product- the gluten-free frozen burrito. I had visions of a Bobby Flay style showdown. After all, what is easier than popping a burrito in the microwave for an easy and super-fast gluten-free meal? GlutenFreeda has an awesome line of gluten-free burritos in a thin and relatively traditional tortilla made with corn and rice, as well as a new Pizza Wrap. Three of their burritos/pizza wraps are vegetarian. Amy’s kitchen has jumped on the bandwagon with two quite respectable gluten-free burritos with a thicker bean flour-based tortilla, and one is even dairy-free AND soy-free. These are all good emergency staples, perfect for making the gluten-free diet easy in a pinch, but as much as I love them, I decided rather than focusing on gluten-free convenience food you can buy, I’d share one of my favorite easy tricks for making a non-corn tortilla with Chebe mix. I also wanted to make my own soy-free, dairy-free AND rice-free vegetarian take on a breakfast burrito. *Neither Amy’s Kitchen nor Glutenfreeda have a gluten-free, vegetarian burrito that is rice-free.* Somehow I got the idea to use chickpeas instead of soy or egg in a “scramble”, and I was glad that I did. This dish is satisfying, tasty, and easy to make for your family. Chebe is easy to work with, but if you don’t feel like pressing or rolling out tortillas, just use the filling for tacos made with gluten-free corn tortillas. I like La Tortilla Factory’s Organic Sonoma Corn tortillas. They are slightly larger than normal, although not quite as big as a traditional flour tortilla, and have great flavor. This filling shows that it is easy to be gluten-free, vegetarian, and even easy to avoid the top eight allergens and still eat great real food. Hope you enjoy!

Diane from The Whole Gang organized an incredible month of easy gluten-free living. Here is the schedule for the entire month of May.

Shared with Sugar Free Sunday

Vegetarian soy-free Chickpea Breakfast Burrito Filling
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup diced onion
generous handful or two of grated carrot
2 medium yellow potatoes, cooked and cubed
1 can chickpeas, drained, rinsed and mashed with a potato masher
generous handful or two of fresh arugula, cleaned and chopped
3 tbsp. nutritional yeast
herbes de Provence
herbamare or your favorite salt
1 tbsp. liquid mustard (I like Annie’s)
3 tbsp. tahini, qhisked with water to make a smooth sauce
1 tsp. coconut aminos (or wheat-free tamari if soy is not an issue)

Heat olive oil in saute pan on medium and add it your diced onion. After it turns translucent, add your grated carrot and cook a minute or two. Move onion and carrot to the edge of the pan and add your cubed, cooked potato to the center of the pan and brown, turning once. Add dry seasonings (herbs, nutritional yeast, pepper, herbamare or salt.) When potatoes are nicely brown, fold in your mashed chickpeas. Taste and add additional dry seasonings to taste. Drizzle your liquid mustard over the potatoes and chickpeas and fold in evenly. Drizzle in your tahini sauce. Combine thoroughly and let brown. Then add your chopped arugula and sprinkle with coconut aminos, folding into the potato-chickpea mixture. When the arugula has wilted, taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Use as filling for a gluten-free, soy-free vegan breakfast burrito or on its own as a hearty main dish.
Would be good served with hot sauce or srirachi sauce to taste.
Gluten-free Dairy-free Chebe Burrito Tortilla Recipe
1 package All Purpose Chebe Mix
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 eggs
4 tbsp. dairy-free or regular milk
Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. I usually knead the dough with my hands for a few minutes until I have a smooth, round ball of dough. Separate into four balls of dough for large tortillas or six to eight balls if you are using a tortilla press for smaller tortillas. Place a ball of dough between two layers of parchment paper (NOT Wax paper- it sticks) and roll it into a thin tortilla. Heat a pan (nonstick, cast iron etc.) on medium and brown your tortilla on each side until lightly browned. Place warm tortilla on a plate and continue to make the rest. If you are using them for burritos, fill each tortilla while still soft and warm and fold around your ingredients. It will cool and stay in the shape you folded it into. Don’t let the tortillas cool and harden without filling them if you plan to use them for burritos.

Gluten-Free Vegan Recipes: Dairy free Sweet Potato Black Bean Cilantro Quesadilla Recipe

May 7th, 2009 yum Posted in Corn Tortillas, Mexican, South American, Vegan, Vegetarian 4 Comments »

veganquesa6I’ve always been a fan of vegan cuisine as inspiration for gluten-free, casein or lactose free recipes. This week I wanted to make some kind of dish with corn tortillas that was gluten-free and dairy-free but still satisfying. Black beans and sweet potatoes are a classic combination that compliment each other beautifully, and I love using a non-traditional oil like peanut oil for extra flavor, as well as seasoning Mexican cuisine with beautiful cumin seeds. Fresh cilantro and a few squeezes of fresh lime added the perfect end notes to the dish. And, best of all, my dairy-obsessed DH really enjoyed the dish, from the fresh homemade corn tortillas to the delicious filling- not a peep was made about how “it just needs cheese”- which kind of says it all. The next time you want to make mexican food, why not try this easy recipe for vegan sweet potato quesadillas? I like using beans or sauteed veggies for a dairy-free quesadilla- what are your favorite fillings?

Vegan Sweet Potato Black Bean Quesadilla Recipe
Corn Tortillas, homemade preferred

1 sweet potato
1 can black beans
peanut oil or canola oil
1/2 red onion, diced
1-2 tsp. cumin seeds
2 tbsp. fresh cilantro
salt and pepper to taste
sprinkle of sugar
squeeze of lime juice

Vegetable “fajita” stir fry
1/2 tbsp. olive oil (I used lemon olive oil)
1/2 red onion, sliced
1 cup crimini or portabella mushrooms, slice
1 red pepper, sliced
GF fajita seasoning or mexican seasoning mix
salt, pepper
Squeeze of lime juice

Prepare corn tortillas so they are lightly cooked (about 40-50 seconds on each side).

Microwave your sweet potato until cooked (3-4 minutes). Remove and let cool slightly, and remove sweet potato skin. Chop cooked sweet potato flesh.

Heat peanut oil (or canola) in a cast iron pot and add your diced onion. As it begins to become translucent, add your cumin. Saute for another minute or two and then add your beans. Mix and let flavors mingle for another few minutes. Add your sweet potato cubes and cook for another few minutes. Salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle with a little sugar. Finally add your cilantro and gently mash with a potato masher. Leave some beans whole, but sweet potatoes should be thoroughly mashed and combined. Adjust seasonings as needed and sprinkle with fresh lime juice. Reserve.

If you like, you can also prepare some vegetable fajita mixture to top the quesadillas. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron pan or nonstick pan and add onion, frying until it begins to turn translucent. Add mushrooms and cook until they are almost done, and then add your red pepper. Season with flavoring mix to taste and add a squeeze of lime juice at the very end.

To prepare quesadillas, fill two tortillas with sweet potato black bean mash, press together, and heat each side in a nonstick pan until well done and filling is warm. Top with vegetable fajita stir fry as a garnish.

Guacamole would be nice as a topping!
