- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Product Review: La Tauna Tortillas
La Tauna is a Tucson-grown company that specializes in vegan tortillas. Born and raised in Tucson, but the company is getting nationwide sales now. I had not heard of the company, nor did I know the tortillas were vegan, when I spotted them at the Co-Op.
Good catch, eye!
Look at them! All in their "spicy" glory. I snagged a bag and headed home.
What are they like? Think about your general non-vegan flour tortillas.They are likely to be cream-colored, buttery. pliable and soft.
But these tortillas are very, very different.
First of all, they have a clean, natural taste to them. No buttery anything going on here. Yup, they are vegan. And, secondly, being that they are whole wheat and butter-less, they are somewhat stronger than non-vegan flour tortillas. They are not hard -- no, no, no. But they don't remind you of a pillow when you touch or eat them.
Ha. Tortilla pillow.
As for the flavor -- the flavor of spice is strangely intermittent. At one moment, you're wondering, "Well, where is it?" In the next bite, you get a burst of spicy flavor. Think about eating sushi: You're going along your merry business, enjoying that luscious raw fish, when suddenly a wild speck of wasabi appears.
Yeah, these tortillas are like that.
But I do like them. Use them as you would any tortilla and take note that you are doing your body good.
