Another Tortilla Recipe
I have posted about homemade tortillas twice before. Here is a new recipe I developed.
Buttermilk (or milk kefir) soaked Flour Tortillas
The night before, up to 24 hours before, combine in a bowl:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup buttermilk - you may need a little more to moisten all the flour.(I use 1/2 cup milk kefir and 1/2 fresh whole milk (goat.)
Stir that together well, cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit for 8 - 24 hours.
When it's time to bake your tortillas, start heating your griddle or cast iron skillet on medium/low heat.
Turn dough onto surface lightly sprinkled with unbleached white flour.
Press flat and on top of the dough, sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon RealSalt, 2 teaspoons Rumford baking powder, and put 2 Tablespoons of extra-virgin coconut oil on top also.
Then, knead for a few minutes until the dough is well combined and elastic. Divide into 12 pieces and form each one into a little round thing. Let those rest on a floured surface as you roll each one out and bake them on the hot griddle, one at a time.
This is a healthy alternative to the sourdough tortillas. As I've mentioned before, it is important to properly soak your whole grains, nuts and seeds before consumption to inactivate the anti-nutrients that interfere with proper digestion and absorption of minerals.
These are soft and delicious!
Please note: Earlier today I posted this and had the leavening, salt and fat in the first list of ingredients. That was an error!!
