“And That’s a (Gluten-Free) Wrap!”

picture of a wrap sandwichIn the on-the-go multi-tasking busy world we live in, sandwich wraps are the ultimate portable food. Wraps can be quickly rolled up and eaten in one hand while your other hand is texting, folding laundry, or walking the dog.

I love having wraps on hand in the kitchen because they are such a great way to use up leftovers. It is so easy to top a wrap with any steak, chicken, seafood, salad, rice, sauce, or gravy leftover from dinner and roll it up for a quick lunch the next day. I also love to add sharp flavors such as goat cheese, blue cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, craisins, mustard, herb spreads, egg or tuna salad, olives, capers, or bean sprouts depending on what I have in my refrigerator. Another favorite use of wraps is to tightly roll a wrap sandwich and then slice it into pinwheels for a luncheon tray. This works well with ham and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or really any combination of sandwich fillers. But where to find a gluten-free wrap?

There are now a few gluten-free wraps on the market including a gluten-free Ivory Teff Wrap from La Tortilla Factory. Their wraps, made from teff and millet grains, are a great source of fiber and have 15g of whole grains per serving.s You can also use tortillas to make a wrap, such as the Gluten-Free Brown Rice Tortillas by Food For Life made from brown rice flour and tapioca flour or the Gluten-Free Tortilla by French Meadow Bakery.

If you enjoy lavash wraps, you can also check out this recipe to make your own gluten-free sandwich wrap from Gluten Free Gobsmacked.

  1. The Celica Foundation and doctors tell us to eliminate blue cheese from our diet as some blue cheese is made with bread mold. 

  2. It is actually very easy to call the companies and ask whether a particular Bleu is safe. I personally shop at Whole Foods and can simply ask the cheese counter employees, as they are taught about Celiac in training and are familiar with all of their products. You can also request a gluten free products guide from them and compare the gluten free dairy offering with those available at your local grocery.
