"A good meal is like a present, and it can feel goofy, at best, to give yourself a present. On the other hand, there is something life affirming in taking the trouble to feed yourself well, or even decently. Cooking for yourself allows you to be strange or decadent or both. The chances of you liking what you made are high, but if it winds up being disgusting, you can always throw it away and order a pizza; no one will ever know." (Jenni Ferrari-Adler)

Yesterday while grocery shopping I came across this product.  I thought the Biblical analogy was "cute"  but then realized that the actual recipe for the tortilla is based on an old testament passage. And apparently this was a popular "bread" at the time.
Who would think that reading the bible could shed some culinary light into one's life?  God is indeed a rather interesting individual.

Just looking at these tortillas made me think of PIZZA! Almost immediately the recollection of the raw vegan pizza I had at CRU. Their vegan pizza is absolutely amazing. I want to have it everyday! However, it takes days to sprout the grains and it will take 12 hours of dehydration to get it ready. I don't even own a dehydrator. 

This is why it was so exciting to discover this tortillas. It takes 2 seconds and voila pizza dough is "prete-a-manger" and it tastes more than delicious. Specially if you live alone and usually cook for 1 this is the perfect size.  Just top it with your favorite veggies and cheese, stick it in the oven for a few minutes so the cheese melts and its ready to eat.  Can't wait to try some. 


  1. Sabes so estou aqui a dois anos ainda nao me integrei muito nos "gastronomia mexican/american " lol se e' que ela existe, lol tortilhas so quando vou ao mexicano e que nao sou muito fa... mas depois mostra o resultado :-)
