Easy Homemade Yeast-free Sweet Potato Vegan Gluten free flatbread. Sweet Potato flatbread w/ chickpea flour. Gluten free tortilla recipe. Gum-free Eggless Oat-free. Pin this Recipe.
After I posted easy and delicious savory Pumpkin rosemary flatbreads, many of you asked me for a gluten-free version, so here goes. These gluten-free flatbreads are adapted from my Gluten-free Rotis from my cookbook.
These flatbreads are easy to whip up, easy to roll out and do not break or tear! They are soft, not hard like crackers, and not dry like a board. They are yeast-free, gum-free, vegan and can be made grain-free with more chickpea flour instead of rice flour.
Use puree of sweet potato, pumpkin or other squash of choice. Use as tortillas, tacos, wraps or what not. Make larger flatbreads to make burritos. Yes, they fold all the way. Use other herbs or spics to use with other cuisines. Add cinnamon and sugar for sweeter flatbread. Add cumin seeds to use as a side Sweet Potato Roti with Indian curries and Dals. Make these vegan gluten free flatbreads.
Soft and easy and pliable. Use as Gluten-free Vegan Tortillas.

Whisk the flours and herbs together. Add to the bowl. Get your hands in there to make a not too sticky dough. Let the ough rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
Divide dough into equal balls. using rice flour roll them out into flatbreads. Cover with a towel to keep them moist.
Heat a skillet. Cook the flatbreads on the skillet until both sides have golden brown spots.
You can also puff them up on the gas flame. Depending on how evenly the dough was kneaded and how evenly rolled out the flatbreads are, they will fully puff or puff in places.
