  • How to Make Cassava Flour Tortillas

    September 14, 2017lectinfreemama

    The Mexican restaurant; a.k.a. the place where “lectin free” eating goes to die.

    If you’ve seen my recipes, you know I use cassava flour a lot. I use it because I think it’s the best grain-free, nut-free alternative to wheat flour that exists. It yields the highest quality baked goods with the chewy, starchy texture of wheat flour. Or does it? Many people wonder whether it’s the “healthiest”…
