These were delicious…i was hungry and chowed them down! The bean spread tasted great. I expected the tomatillos to be sour, but combined with the other ingredients, they had only the perfect amount of tang!
Aren’t we supposed to eat oil free? Tortillas have oil in it, also they are made with white flower.
I have a hard time finding whole wheat and fat free tortillas.
Rick Esselstyn used to sell some at Whole Food, but they taste like card board.
For that reason I cannot make any wraps.
We recommend Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Tortillas, which are oil-free. To make your own tortillas at home, you might try our recipe: https://www.forksoverknives.com/recipes/vegan-baked-stuffed/vegan-whole-wheat-flour-tortillas/

So nice to see an idea, I have the same question and concern as Chris Webb. I’ve made the lentil flat bread and it seems to crack and break for me when I wrap it. However I think I’ll try using the Brown Rice Spring Roll Wrapper. Ingredients are brown rice, cassava, water green tea and salt.
I’m remembering Esselstyn’s response to the ‘it won’t kill you on occasion’ line….Moderation Kills. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnJTwUkl75I
Rich Roll says, (paraphrasing) “when I go out to eat with friends, I try to adhere to my diet. If I can’t, I eat the best I can and don’t make a fuss. It’s not going to kill me.”
In other words, do the best you can with what you have. Don’t not eat this because of oil in the tortilla. Maybe eat less of them. But, it’s one meal. It’s really not going to kill you. Lighten up.
Chris, I make these delicious three-ingredient (lentils, water, and salt) soft wraps from red lentils — they’re oil-free and taste amazing. I hope this makes a difference for you. 🙂
