Flax Tortillas

Flax Tortilla

These super healthy, gluten-free & added oil-free tortillas are a great way to get in your daily intake of flax.  I infused these with turmeric and spices.  Great to eat on their own or make healthy salad wraps.

I buy organic flaxseed meal in the 4-pound bag.  The exact product I used is under “Grocery Items” found here.

1 cup flaxseed meal (ground flax seeds)
⅔ cup water
1 tsp turmeric
¼ tsp black pepper
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder

In a medium saucepan, bring the ⅔ cup of water to a boil.

Then turn off the heat and mix in all the ingredients.

Keep mixing until it forms a firm dough.  It might still be a little wet.

Push the mixture down and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

Once it is set, remove and place on a cutting board.

Divide into 5 equal pieces and roll them into balls.

I prefer to use my cast iron tortilla press.

The one I use is available under “Kitchen Appliances & Tools” found here.

If using a tortilla press make sure to press the dough balls between two pieces of plastic.

Make sure you also use two pieces of plastic or a gallon plastic bag to roll them in.

Otherwise, the dough will stick.

In a medium skillet cook each tortilla for about 60 seconds on each side.

They will be good in the refrigerator for about 5 days.

Experiment by adding other spices and flavors you enjoy.

This recipe will make 5 tortillas and each will provide a full days worth of flax + turmeric.
