White Bean Tortillas

Yes, another white bean recipe :) I can't help it, they bring such a nice mild savory flavor that the nut flours have such trouble producing. I twisted and tweaked the tortilla recipe from Againstallgrain.com and came up with this :) The egg whites give these tortillas the bendy tortilla feeling that scream "Fill me!". Hope you like it. These SCD White Bean Tortillas are Gluten-free, Grain Free,  and Yeast Free.


Makes about 6 small Tortillas

1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
1/4 White Beans (soaked 24 hours, then cooked)
1/4 Cup Almond Milk
8 Egg Whites
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt

Blend Almond milk and beans in a blender or food processor. Once pureed add remaining ingredients, batter will be runny. Heat a non-stick saute pan on medium-low.  Poor a small circle of batter into the hot pan and tilt it around quickly to spread the batter into a thinner circle. Flip after about 2 or 3 minutes, it will look like the tortilla batter dried on the one side up (will make sense when you make em). Cook other side another 2 minutes and serve.

**To flip - slip the spatula under the ends all the way around the tortilla and then slowly slip it under all the way around to loosen entire tortilla and flip. Be careful, I went through 3 my first try before I got it right ;)



*Note - One side will look like a pancake, the other will look like a tortilla :)

    1. Hi Maera :)
      I use white Navy beans. I have started to do them in the crockpot. Soak them for 20 hours in the crockpot, changing the water once. Then turn on the crockpot on low for about 4 hours or until tender. I have also done it in a regular bowl, and then transfer to a pot. Just remember, the beans with grow when you soak them, so make sure you have double the water in whatever you are soaking them in. I hope this helps!

  4. Hi Michelle, I used Lima beans while waiting for your response and those turned out great, too. I will definitely try white navy beans next.

    This recipe is really terrific!

    1. I Kailie! I'm so sorry I missed your question. I hope going grain free is treating you well! I just wanted to share with you that that substitution would work just fine. It all depends on the flavor you are going for. With grain free recipes, it seems as long as the texture is near the same, the recipe works perfect :)

  6. Thanks for all you share here. I'd like to clarify if the amount of white beans is 1/4 cup? And if so, that's the dry bean measurement, right? Would that be about 1/2 after they're soaked? I'd like to cook a larger batch since I'm cooking them and am trying to figure out how many cooked beans for each recipe. Thanks..

    1. Hi Dorothy! I soaked the beans first and then measured them to 1/4 cup. The egg whites is what gives this recipe the right texture; the beans are there for a nice savory flavor. I hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by my blog =D
