3 INGREDIENT GLUTEN FREE BUCKWHEAT WRAPS

Having taken a little break from posting on my blog and social media, I’m back with a new lease of energy {a huge sigh of relief} and beaming with excitement to conjure up some new healthy and delicious recipes. I suppose we all come to a point at one stage when we get too burnt out, tired and unmotivated – these are little alarm bells reminding us to slow down, take a deep breath(s), regroup our thoughts and have some rest from the ‘rut race’ we grow so accustomed to.

Before I delve into the recipe for this super easy gluten free buckwheat wrap, I can’t help but share this weekend’s experience of meeting Dave and Steve from The Happy Pear at the Waitrose food festival (if you love food, this Hampshire festival is THE place to be!) As I stood there watching the twin brothers’ demo of making hummus (which was delicious by the way), I felt how passionate these guys were about healthy wholesome food and mindful living. You could feel their buzz, which stemmed from their love for what they do. Having started with a small veg shop in Ireland and a big dream of making a positive change in their community, they turned the ‘two men band’ into a well established health brand.

I got ‘infected’ with the Happy Pear’s divinely positive energy so much so, that as soon as I got back home, I opened my laptop and obsessively started typing this post. The Happy Pear reminded me to follow my dreams, enjoy the journey and have fun in the process.

Without further ado, let’s get down to the recipe for this super easy buckwheat wrap. There’s been so many times when I’ve picked up gluten free wraps from a supermarket shelf to only get put off by extensive and not very friendly ingredients listed on the packaging. So, back on the shelves they went! As soon as you realise how easy it is to make your own wraps with a handful of ingredients, I doubt you’ll ever opt in for a supermarket version again.

You can always experiment with wrap fillings – I just use whichever veggies I can lay my hands on in the fridge. This time I gently sautéed peppers, kale and spinach with a dash of tamari sauce and served it all with a sprinkle of toasted pine nuts, fresh basil and mashed avocado. Voila!

These gluten free wraps require basic ingredients and are very easy to make. If you wish, you can make the batter thinner and turn the wraps into pancakes. 

Course: Dinner, Lunch
Author: Tania Pilcher | Fit Foodie Nutter
Ingredients
  • 1 egg (use flax egg for a vegan friendly option: 1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water)
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup plant milk
  • 4 tbsp water
  • Extra: wrap filling ingredients of choice
  • Oil of choice for frying
Instructions
  1. 1. In a measuring jug, whisk an egg. {For a vegan option, make a flax egg by mixing 1 tbsp ground flaxseed with 3 tbsp water. Set aside for a few minutes to let the mixture gel}.  

    2. Add the flour, salt, milk and water to the jug and mix well.

    3. Leave in the fridge for at least 10 minutes whilst you’re preparing the filling for the wrap. Alternatively, keep the batter in the fridge overnight and use the morning after. If the batter is too thick the next morning, add one or two tablespoons of water to thin it out. You’re looking for a slightly runny batter consistency (if you make it too thin, the wraps will turn out more like pancakes).

    4. Grease the pan with a little oil and heat over medium heat. Pour around 1/4 cup of batter, swirl round the pan and cook for a couple of minutes on each side.

  1. Tania, I can totally understand you on the subject of ‘burning out’ and needing to take a break and some time out. I went through a bloody roller-coaster this year with my blog and I still get the days, when I’m just ‘not feeling it’. But it’s so important to ‘unplug’ yourself every now and then, just to re-charge and be creative again! And I love this recipe and how simple it is! Will be pinning it and trying for sure! Yummerz! xxx

    1. Hi Anna! I’m so pleased that I’m not the only one feeling like this! I keep questioning myself if creating the blog and following the food photography was the right thing to do (it’s a rather expensive and extremely time consuming hobby!) but I hope it will turn out OK in the end. At the end of the day, we only have one life and we have to at least try and follow our dreams, right?!
      Thank you so much for being so supportive Anna, really appreciate taking the time to visit my blog. Have a great weekend xx

  2. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us Tania, I always struggle to find good gluten-free (and vegan) wraps so I’ll be adding these to my to-make list for sure! I’ve felt a little burnt out myself over the past few days but I’m happy to hear you’re feeling better after a short break – I think I’m in need of one those! x

    1. Hi Stacey! You are very welcome indeed! I get in the same predicament with supermarket version of wraps – it’s a real struggle to find good ones which would consist of a handful of ingredients.
      I hope you are feeling better now Stacey. Don’t forget to take little breaks as I find they are essential to keep our creativity alive. Thank you so much for visiting my blog Stacey! Have a great weekend xx
