Tortillas

#1 Postby julia » Wed Jun 30, 2010 7:49 am

Here's what I made for lunch today: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ad_finem/4748264117/
Even my mum who's always very skeptical about low-fat vegan food loved them :)

I love making my own tortillas - they taste so much better than the ones at the grocery store that are packaged and full of preservatives and stuff. Every year for Christmas I ask for a tortilla press but I never end up getting one. Probably for the best, I think I would eat them all of the time, too.

If you make a big batch they freeze well.

Those look delicious!! Do you have a special healthier recipe than normal flour tortillas? If so, can I bother you for it?

edit: Oh, I just noticed the caption, sorry!

I love how the guy in the video says, "Even vegetables are good in these!" :lol:

Apparently you can use olive oil if you want, instead of veggie shortening. Also you can sub white wheat flour in and it should be fine....

@ Jason X: Thanks!
@ Jennie: I think whole wheat or spelt flour should work as well. Like Fallen_Horse has suggested, I used olive oil instead of veg. shortening.
"Even vegetables are good in these!" I had to laugh about that as well ;)

Whole wheat pastry flour works well in tortillas. If you just use plain whole wheat they are pretty tough though.
