FAQs for these Crunchy Tuna Wraps
How do I store these?
I would recommend storing each component of this recipe (tuna salad, avocado, kale and cassava flour tortillas) separately in a sealed container of the fridge for up to 2 days. Reheat the tortilla wraps in the microwave for 30 – 40 seconds before adding the filling and toasting.
Can I make substitutions to the tuna salad?
You can likely use canned salmon in this recipe in place of the tuna, though I haven’t tried myself. You can also substitute different herbs for the fresh cilantro here if you prefer, and use grapes instead of apples if that’s more your thing!
Can I substitute the cassava flour in the wraps?
These gluten-free tortilla wraps are made entirely using cassava (tapioca starch and cassava flour), and I don’t recommend any substitutions here. I tested this recipe using Bob’s Red Mill Cassava Flour and Tapioca Starch.
How do I ensure the wraps are soft and pliable?
The keys to soft tortilla wraps that fold and bend are:
- Ensure your dough has enough moisture. If the dough is breaking apart as you’re forming your balls of dough, you likely need to add an additional TBSP or two of water.
- Don’t overcook them – you want them to cook ~ 1 minute per side in a hot pan just enough so they set, but not long enough for them to brown. Remember, you’ll be toasting them once you’ve filled the wraps.
- Ensure you’re working with warm wraps. If you’re making the wraps ahead of time, it’s important to reheat them before attempting to fold and stuff them as they definitely harden in the fridge.
