Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole grain flour spelt, whole wheat, and kamut are all delicious!
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 large handful fresh spinach

Instructions

  • Blend the water together with the spinach until very smooth. You probably won't need all of this, FYI.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl (flour, baking powder, salt).
  • Stir in the olive oil to create a 'pebbly' texture.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry mix, and add in about 1/2 of the spinach water.
  • Stir until the water is absorbed, and continue adding spinach water until the dough is well moistened.
  • If it becomes sticky, add in a little bit of flour at a time until it's not.
  • Knead the dough for 2-5 minutes until it is smooth and there are no dry patches. It should NOT be sticky!
  • Cover the ball of dough with your mixing bowl, and let it sit for 10-30 minutes (the longer, the better!).
  • Divide the dough into eight equal pieces.
  • Begin to heat a large non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium high heat.
  • Flour a surface, and begin rolling out the balls of dough, making them as thin or thick as you like. If your rolling pin begins to stick, add a bit more flour.
  • Place the tortilla into the heated skillet.
  • Heat the first side for 20-30 seconds or until you begin to see small bubbles form.
  • Flip the tortilla and cook the reverse side for another 5-15 seconds, as needed.
  • Place the cooked tortilla onto a large plate and immediately cover it with a dish towel. This locks in heat and moisture so as to keep the tortillas soft and pliable!
  • Repeat these steps with the remaining balls of dough, placing all the tortillas in a stack on the same plate. Be sure to cover the plate each time!
  • Store the tortillas in a large resealable plastic bag.
