Jump to Recipe
Stephanie Zarling introduced me to Cassava flour tortillas in one of our Cooking with My Friends episodes. We made tacos with them, but I had some leftover and wanted to try making a quick grilled cheese to go with the tomato soup I was having for lunch. Turns out, this Gluten-Free Cassava Grilled Cheese is the perfect way to enjoy a grain-free, gluten-free grilled cheese!

Why eat the Gluten-Free Cassava Grilled Cheese?

Just because you have a food intolerance or are trying to avoid common food allergens doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy tortillas! Cassava flour is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, corn-free and is AIP friendly! That makes cassava flour a perfect addition to a kitchen where the eaters have some allergies or are trying to avoid certain foods. When made into tortillas, they have a very similar consistency to regular wheat tortillas. As amazing as these tortillas are, you want to eat them in moderation as they are high in carbohydrates.

    I used mild cheddar and mozzarella and it turned out perfect. I also cooked the tortilla using 1 tbsp of melted butter to up the taste.
