Whenever I make tortillas, I wonder why I don't make them more often. They are so easy, generally taking 20 minutes tops and you can't beat homemade tortillas. I love to use Spelt and Kamut flours with a little white. You can substitute some of the water for a veggie puree and add spices as well to make them what you want. Make extra and freeze them for later!
1 1/2 cups whole grain flour
1 cup white (or use all whole grain)
1 tsp. salt
1/3 c. coconut oil
1 cup hot water or hot water with veggie puree
Mix the flour and salt together and any spices desired. Chili powder or cumin
are great! Cut in coconut oil with a pastry knife or two knives. Stir in hot water or puree mixture till combined. To make a puree, put one cup hot water in the blender with 1/2 cup veggies of choice. I love red bell peppers and spinach or even some salsa! Use 1 cup of that mixture. Add more flour if needed. You want it pretty soft.
Roll into a thick snake and cut it into desired portions, keeping the balls covered. The recipe usually makes 12 medium or 15 small tortillas. Roll into circles on a floured surface. Cook till golden on both sides on a hot skillet. Put into a covered container or between a slightly moistened towel and stack them together. The steam helps to soften them. Store in a ziplock or air tight container in the fridge or freeze.
