Here is some of what Tiffany said about the Sandwich Petals:

“The awesome Sandwich Petals are made with ten nutritious grains and they are free of dairy, egg, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, soy and gluten. There is a tiny bit of fish from tuna oil for the omega 3. The grains include buckwheat, sorghum, millet, quinoa (a super food!), teff, amaranth, sesame, tapioca, corn and flax. Each petal contains 3 grams of fiber or 12% of the RDA. The flatbreads are a low glycemic food, helping to maintain proper blood sugar levels.”

“The number of things that these great Sandwich Petal’s can be used for is almost limitless.”

“Well, I’ve got to say that [the Spinach Garlic Pesto] was my absolute favorite wrap of the three. The flavors in the Spinach Garlic Pesto Sandwich Petals are just perfect together!”

Here is some of what Chad had to say about trying the Sandwich Petals:

“I was very excited to try these sandwich petals, because, corn tortillas simply aren’t the best substitute for a sandwich wrap! It had probably been a good 20 years since I have eaten a wrap, so you can imagine my joy when I opened up the package.”

“When I first opened up the package, my first instinct was to bend them around, to see just how pliable they really are! After all, gluten-free tortillas, especially larger tortillas, are known for falling apart easily! However, I was surprised that the Sandwich Petals were able to hold up very well.”

“I would definitely recommend that you heat up the sandwich petal prior to using it, as it makes the petal much more flexible and easy to use. The Garlic Pesto was an excellent replacement for the traditional sandwich wrap and you can actually taste the spinach, garlic and basil flavors, but they are not overpowering. It felt great to actually eat a wrap again!”

“The [Chimayo Red Chile] Sandwich Petal held up great and the burrito didn’t fall apart in my hands! The flavor was great and not really spicy at all, so don’t worry if you aren’t a big fan of spice.”

“Oh, and the best part about these sandwich petals is that they are shelf stable for 30 days without refrigeration!”

Here is some of what Chrissy at Spectrum Hope had to say about trying the Sandwich Petals:

“I was a little nervous about reviewing a prepackaged gluten-free product because they tend to be ‘dissapointing’ at best. However, I was pleasantly surprised by these flatbreads. The taste and texture are outstanding and they are very versatile. ”

” I tried all three and loved them all. My husband is no fan of gluten-free bread and he enjoyed them too. Even my 3 year old devoured these flatbreads!

” I found them to be very filling and since they are super slow digesting, I stayed full for hours. Even if you’re not gluten free, you might consider Sandwich Petals as a healthier alternative to regular bread.”

“I don’t know how they managed to make these flatbreads so flexible and tasty.”

Here is some of what Gluten Free Mike had to say about trying the Sandwich Petals:

“Well, I need not have wrap envy any more thanks to Sandwich Petals. These petal-like shaped flatbreads not only fill my wrap need – they exceed it. They are chock-full of healthy ingredients that make regular wraps look like plain old Wonder bread without being heavy on the calorie-side as more traditional wraps tend to be.”

“Now I have to admit, I was not sure if one petal would hold me but it was so filling that one indeed was the perfect size. The petal itself is wonderfully flavored with the perfect balance of spices. You can really taste the spinach, garlic, and basil but these flavors do not overpower whatever you decide to fill them with – nice.”

“Raquelita’s says that these are versatile and they are not kidding.”

“This is a no fuss, ready to go ingredient that I am so pleased to have found.”

“I also love, love, love a company that gives a little bit back and each month Raquelita’s Tortillas donates 1% of sales of their Sandwich Petals to gluten free food banks.”

Here is some of what Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom had to say about trying the Sandwich Petals:

” Each petal has only 90 calories, 1 gram of fat, 3 grams of fiber, and only 4 grams of sugar. They also have Omega 3’s and prebiotics. They are even shelf-stable for 30 days without refrigeration! Woo Hoo! Sandwich Petals are also virtually free of the 8 top allergens: they contain no dairy, egg, peanut, tree nut, shellfish, soy or wheat. They do contain fish (a portion of the Omega 3’s is derived from tuna oil). They also contain corn if that is a concern for you.”

“One of the aspects of the Sandwich Petals that I like are the size… The texture is great too and they are extremely pliable (see below for a picture of the pinwheels I made, that should demonstrate the pliability pretty well! I know a lot of us miss flour tortillas (well, at least I have for certain things) and while I would not go so far to say that these are a replica of the gluten version of flour tortillas, (probably because there isn’t any shortening or lard in them) they do have the “bendability” of a flour tortilla (whereas a corn tortilla can be more fragile). They are best served gently reheated. I nuke mine in the microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power.”

“Here is what is so cool about the flavored wraps: there is so much flavor that you do not need to add a fattening condiment like mayo or Ranch dressing! I also think these would be great with grilled chicken, shrimp or portobello mushrooms, pretty much anything you can imagine eating with a pesto sauce. The website even offers the suggestion of using them as lasagna “noodles”!”

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

– Using the Agave Sandwich Petals, spread Nutella on one Sandwich Petal and Raspberry preserves on the other Petal.

-Put the two Petals together, then grill for one minute using a foreman type grill. Or you can use a pan on the stove, just flip the Petal over after about 30 seconds, then let sit another 30 seconds on the other side.

-Take the Petal off of the heat, and let the Petals cool for a few seconds then cut with a pizza cutter into slice sizes you desire.

-Then enjoy!
