Grain Free Herbed Tortillas!

Easy to make grain free tortillas! Your tortillas will not have perfectly smooth edges. That is okay, I think they look pretty "rustic"style. If you want a smooth edge you can always trim them. Sometimes I want these tortillas plain and I leave out the herbs. It's up to you!
