I first met Tara, author of the new cookbook Essential Gluten-Free Recipes, in yoga class about 8 years ago. She was pregnant at the time and we struck up a conversation about Labor of Love, a local birthing center in Tampa that offers women a fantastic natural birth experience as well as holistic prenatal care.
A natural opportunity to talk to Tara about traditional cooking and the travels and teachings of Dr. Weston A. Price presented itself when her child began to experience a challenge with food allergies.
One time, I brought some homemade broth to her house when a tummy bug was making the rounds. Tara has been hooked on traditional cooking ever since and in the ensuing years has become a successful speaker and writer known in alternative circles as the Healthy Habit Coach.
Tara is also the Weston A. Price Chapter Leader of Las Vegas, Nevada and was a featured speaker at the recent Wise Traditions Conference in Dallas.
I’ve been reading through Tara’s awesome new gluten-free cookbook in recent days (the pictures are amazing!) and found this wonderful recipe to share with you.
Grain Free Enchiladas
Yield: 2-4 tortillas (depending on skillet size)
5 free range/pastured eggs
Ghee or coconut oil (cooking fat)
Grassfed ground beef or ground turkey
Chopped raw or cooked vegetables of choice
Grated raw cheese or raw carrot (if dairy free)
Finely chopped greens
Dollop of fresh sour cream or coconut yogurt (if dairy free)
Saute garlic and onions in a bit of cooking fat until golden. Add ground meat and brown. Add chopped veggies of choice if desired.
To prepare the grain free tortillas, heat a small skillet and add cooking fat. In a bowl, beat the eggs well. Pour a very thin layer of egg into the skillet and cover briefly. In less than a minute, remove egg tortilla and place on a covered dish. Repeat until all the egg is used up and you have 2-4 tortillas ready.
Wrap the ground meat mixture in the egg tortillas and top with chopped greens, cheese or shredded carrots, salsa, and a dollop of sour cream or coconut yogurt.
Serve and enjoy!
