So now we know the basic recipe and/or perhaps you have completely created & personalized your own, how are and what are we going to make with it? For me personally this is where my left overs come in handy. I have used these as a wrap & taco shell, I have used them as pizza crusts, I have also cut them up and put them in the toaster to crisp them up and serve with soup. You could top with garlic butter and cheese and bake in the oven & serve with hummus or marinara sauce, ummm perhaps that's what I'll make next. :)
Hope you find recipes to create and enjoy as I do using wholesome & organic ( when possible ) foods and may you also be Nutritionally Well.
