Dr Jockers Comments:
So many of my clients love Mexican foods, burritos, taco’s and tortillas but since we look to remove grains and corn, they have limited options. This recipe is both corn and gluten free and has an anti-inflammatory effect on the body.
Cassava is a root vegetable that is also known as Yuca. It is a staple food for many populations across Latin America, Asia and Africa. Cassava is loaded with prebiotics that help feed your microbiome and improve the development of good bacteria in your gut.
We have found that Otto’s Cassava Flour is one of the best replacements for wheat flour and can be used in many different recipes including cakes, cookies, pancakes and crepes. It doesn’t have the same dry taste or texture as many other gluten-free flours.
