Over the past few years, I have loved cooking for friends! Seeing a clean plate and going for seconds is a very high compliment for me. But the highest compliment is when I am asked for the recipe.
This past spring, I decided to have my first official Sunday Family Dinner for this website. So my husband and I invited our dear friends Elizabeth and Wendell, who just happen to be vegetarians. What do you serve vegetarians that would be tasty and fun? Luckily, goat cheese was on their regime.
So I served them my homemade cheese enchiladas sans gluten. They are so simple to make and soooooooo very delicious! And not to mention FUN! After our dinner, Elizabeth asked for the recipe (a very high compliment) and now I share it with you. I promise this will be a huge winner with your family!
This is what you will need:
2 egg whites
5 oz. goat chevre
1½ tsp ground psyllium husk powder
1 tbsp coconut flour
½ tsp salt
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
In a blender, mix all the ingredients together until the batter is smooth.
The batter thickens depending on the brand of psyllium husk powder — some trial and error might be needed.
Add a small amount of butter or oil to a pan and place it over medium heat. Then pour the batter like you are making pancakes. Cook until set on top and then flip carefully and let the other side cook for about a minute. I find that I can make approximately 6 thick tortillas. (or pancakes)
After you have your tortillas, place them on a cooking sheet with plenty of cheese on each one. (I used goat cheddar cheese for this occasion, but you can use any kind of cheese you want)
Place in the oven for about 5 minutes for the cheese to melt
Serve with your topping of choice. Here we had fresh heirloom tomatoes with avocados topped with green salsa. However, if you are not a vegetarian you can also add tex-mex ground beef and salsa!
This kind of “Tortilla” also works very well as a thin pizza crust. For a tasty pizza, add unsweetened spaghetti sauce, red tomato pesto or tomato paste, shredded mozzarella cheese, a little oregano and other toppings such as pepperoni, olives, or some fresh veggies.
