Yea, you read that right, 2 ingredients that you should already have in your pantry can make you some killer tortillas, and enough of them to feed a crowd too!
Tortillas you find pre-packaged in the store may seem like a healthy option but a lot of them are packed with ingredients that we can't even pronounce - not good! They are processed in high quantities, need to be shipped to warehouses and then finally to your local grocery store - so you can bet that they are packed with preservatives as well.
This recipe is refreshing because it will take you back to basics and prove that you don't need a long list of ingredients to make some damn good food.
For the longest time I had seriously missed having wraps and tortillas. Knowing all that I know about health and nutrition, I just wasn't satisfied with what was offered to me in the stores nearby. Luckily I was able to spend an afternoon experimenting with recipes until I found the perfect combination of ingredients that brought me this recipe, and I'm excited to share it with you. They are so easy to transport, they are delicious and they are a lot lighter than bread. These tortillas last a while in the freezer too, so save some time, make yourself a double-batch and keep some for next time.
This recipe is easily customizable. If you like, try adding seeds, herbs and seasonings to your tortilla, play around with it and let us know what you did! This recipe makes about 14 medium sized tortillas.
Nutrition Facts (Per 1 tortilla)
4.5g Protein * We calculated this on Cronometer
4 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups water, plus more if needed
1 tsp salt
• Mix together the flour and salt, stir in water
• Knead dough until all flour is incorporated
• Dough should resemble a thick bread dough, and should not be too sticky in hands. Add more water or flour as needed.
• Roll into tangerine sized balls (this is for a medium sized tortilla, feel free to make them bigger or smaller as needed).
• On a well floured counter top, use a rolling pin to roll the dough into thin circles - mine were definitely not all circles so don't worry.
• Heat a non-stick pan on medium heat, place the tortilla on for 30 seconds to 1 minute per side, until golden brown.
• Serve immediately.
Tip: I get into a flow while making tortillas, I make the dough, and then heat the pan, roll a ball, flatten it, toss it in the pan, and while it's cooking I have time to roll out another one. Kind of like a little production line, featuring only me...it's actually kind of sad when I think of it like that.
