Gluten-Free Spinach Tortillas

If I had known these tortillas were going to be so easy to make, I would’ve done it a long time ago! If you are anything like me, then you understand how time-consuming the dinner-making process can be. The kids are running around “doing their homework” while you try to do laundry, pick up the living room, and complete the rest of your mommy to-do list, so sometimes, it’s just a huge relief to make something easy!

your gluten free tortillas just got better with this easy homemade spinach tortilla recipe!

Finding delicious gluten-free tortillas at the store is getting easier than it used to be, but they often come with a hefty price tag. Especially the spinach variety. So when it gets tough to find alternatives at the store, come to MOMables; we have so many great ideas!

I’m fortunate that my daughter loves spinach, so I have been wanting to try these out for her for some time now. They’re so simple! You just need a few ingredients you probably already have in your fridge and cupboards.

They’re great for lunches too. One of my favorite spinach salads is topped with chicken, fresh strawberries, and a balsamic dressing. So why not put it in a spinach tortilla instead?

Gluten-Free Spinach Tortillas

Recipe yields approximately six 6-inch tortillas

  • Author: MOMables.com
  • Yield: 6

Ingredients

  • 3 cups packed spinach, cleaned and stems removed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour (I use King Arthur GF Flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, cook the spinach and water over medium heat until soft.
  2. Drain the excess water from the spinach, and set aside for use in the dough.
  3. Place the spinach in a food processor (or blender) and grind until smooth.
  4. Add the flour, baking powder, oil, and salt. Mix until crumbly.
  5. Add the reserved water from cooking the spinach, slowly as needed, until a smooth dough is formed.
  6. Divide the dough into equal parts, then roll into thin circles (dust with flour, as needed). Try to achieve about a 6-inch tortilla.
  7. Heat in a pan, one at a time, on the stove on medium heat. Toast on each side until it starts to bubble or golden dots appear.
  8. Serve with your favorite fillings!
