Sandwich Petals are Delightful

Did you think all gluten-free and allergen-free breads needed to be kept in the freezer? I did too – until recently. A couple food-allergy bloggers had suggested sandwich wraps from Sandwich Petals so I decided to give them a try.

The company that makes them describes them as a flatbread, but they are very much like a traditional bread wrap. Their unique oblong shape actually makes them the perfect size. They come in three flavors – agave grain, spinach garlic pesto, and chimayo red chile. All three are fantastic!

They are gluten-free and free of the top eight allergens. (They do contain corn, sesame, and flax.) You can purchase them at in a variety box (one package of each flavor).

The best part? Wait for it… they do not need to be refrigerated or stored in the freezer. You can keep them in your pantry, and they have a shelf life of 60 days. Chances are they won’t last that long.

I find that the recommendation to reheat for 30 seconds really does bring them to life. Just wrap a single bread in a moist paper towel and microwave for 30 seconds.

Here’s an example of a wrap with roast beef and avocado spread.

My favorite use for these so far is to grill a sandwich Panini-style.

They would also make a great soft taco. Have you tried them yet? What do you think?
