Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas
Using a Flatbread Maker
3 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup warm water
Food Processor Method:
Place flour and salt in bowl of processor. Add oil and process for about 3 seconds. With machine running, pour water through feed tube in a steady stream. Let machine run until dough forms a ball. Dough should be a medium-stiff consistency. If dough is too stiff, add a little more water.
Hand Mixing Method:
Rub flour, salt and oil together with your fingers until completely incorporated and fine crumbs form. Pour water into dry ingredients and immediately work it in with a fork. Dough will be in large clumps. Sprinkle with flour and knead until smooth, about 2 minutes.
Divide dough into 12-15 equal pieces, roll into balls, cover with plastic wrap, and let rest at least 30 minutes before baking.
I use a Flatbread Maker to bake the dough (VillaWare UNO Grand Wrap). Roll out the dough into a circle as thin as you can get it without breaking- still being able to move it to the hot iron. Place it on the hot surface and move the lid up and down cooking the wrap. Flip the wrap after 1 minute of baking and cook the other side the same way- moving the lid up and down. The wrap should be cooked and ready in about 2 minutes or less.
