Hey, friendly friends!
I promised you a rockin' tortilla recipe,
so here it is!
Not to be confused with my other tortilla recipe,
which is very fluffy and pita-like (and WAY delicious),
this one is a very traditional tortilla,
except that it's made with whole-wheat and coconut oil.
Healthy and majorly delicious.
Here's the recipe:
2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cups water
1/4 cup MELTED coconut oil (or lard, butter, olive oil or tallow)
1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. salt
Here's the thing, and please pay attention!
The night before (or early in the morning), mix together the flour,
water, and vinegar.
Let that set for a good 6-8 hours!!!
Soaking your whole grain flour completely transforms it!
And makes it soooo much easier to digest, if you're sensitive to such things.
After the soaking, mix in the fat of your choice and salt.
Now listen, you'll likely need to add more flour, probably way more flour.
(I added an extra cup or so.)
You'll just have to figure it out as you go.
The thing is, you don't want your dough super sticky.
It's gotta be at a nice texture that you can handle without it sticking to your fingers.
Don't be shy to use as much flour as you need.
(I used King Arthur All-Purpose flour, and it is magically delicious!)
Heat up a cast-iron skillet pretty hot.
And while you're waiting on that, start pulling some dough off into little
golf-ball size balls.
Roll it out into really thin circles. REALLY THIN!
Throw the circles on the skillet and cook for a minute or two on each side.
my first batch of this I almost ditched.
It was a sticky, wet mess.
But I didn't want to waste my ingredients, so I stuck to it.
And boy, was I so glad!
It's such a simple recipe, but you've got to make it work for you and your climate!
If you love tortillas,
you will absolutely adore this recipe!
