Inspired by Lisa Leake's Whole-Wheat Tortillas Recipe on 100daysofrealfood.com.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • .5 cup Avocado Oil
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 cup warm water from Keurig Machine I try not to use the microwave.

Instructions

  • In the bowl pour in the flour, oil, and salt and mix with hands.
  • Gradually add the warm water and continue mixing until the dough is smooth, about 5 minutes.
  • Take out dough out of bowl and knead for about 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 12 equal-sized pieces.
  • Using the palms of your hand roll each piece into a round ball and flatten it out on a baking tray or board. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for at least 15 minutes or up to one hour.
  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over med heat. The pan should be fairly hot before you begin cooking the tortillas.
  • Use a rolling pin or smooth bottle to turn each ball into a flat circle. Hang at least 3 flat tortilla on edge of bowl before cooking first tortilla.
  • Grease the pan with a touch of oil (or ghee) and carefully transfer each tortilla, one at a time, to the pan and cook until puffy and slightly brown. 
  • Set aside in aluminum foil. Eat within an hour, refrigerate or freeze.
