I’ve been itching to make my own tortillas, and I finally did today! They were surprisingly, amazingly easy to make! I’m never buying store-bought tortillas again.
Whole Wheat Tortillas
~These tortillas are vegan, dairy-free, whole grain, and of course, sugar-free!
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 3/4 cup warm water
First, mix all ingredients except water. Then add the water until the mixture sticks together to form a nice ball. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
Heat a pan with a little bit of oil on the bottom (to prevent sticking). Meanwhile, spilt the dough into about 10 different parts and roll them into balls. Flatten the balls with a rolling pin, your hands, a cookie sheet, or whatever to make the tortilla thin. Cook the tortillas for about 30 seconds each side or until cooked to your liking (I like mine a little crisper).
Use them with your favorite dishes, or just eat ’em with a spread for a snack:
The possibilities are endless! The batch of tortillas I made today were a little thick, so it tasted kind of like naan. Yum!
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
Is there something that you always used to buy at the store until you found out that is was surprisingly easy to make! This happens to me a lot! I always find that my creations are easier on the wallet, too, than store-bought stuff.
