Tortillas

    Share

    Adding different herbs and spices to your tortilla dough gives it more flavour. Cumin, for example, is a popular favourite. Experiment with organic flours like kamut, hemp or spelt for variety.

    3 cups (750 ml) whole wheat flour
    1/3 cup (80 ml) extra-virgin olive oil or organic vegetable oil
    1 tsp (5 ml) sea salt
    1 cup (250 ml) warm filtered water

    In a large bowl, combine flour and oil; mix with a fork until crumbled. In a small bowl, dissolve salt in warm water then slowly add to flour mixture. Knead mixture for five to seven minutes to form a smooth dough. Cover dough and let sit for 30 to 40 minutes at room temperature. Cut into one-and-a-half-inch (8 cm) balls. Dust working surface and dough with flour then roll each piece into a thin eight-inch (20 cm) round.

    In a skillet, pan fry each side on medium-high heat for one minute or until both sides bubble and turn golden-brown.

    Use tortillas fresh or wrap in plastic and refrigerate for use the next day. Makes 12 to 16 tortillas.
