INGREDIENTS (for 5 or 6 tortillas approximately)

1 cup ground golden flaxseed

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 cup warm water

Salt to taste (I use 1/4 teaspoon)

A pinch of turmeric (optional, just to give it a little color)

PREPARATION

Combine  the flaxseed with the olive oil

Dissolve the salt and turmeric in  the  warm water and add to the flaxseed.

Stir the dough with a spatula  and let stand for 2 hours

Take a small amount, lightly kneading the dough and form a ball  a little bit smaller than a golf ball. 

Form the tortillas using a tortilla press or heavy dish

For using the press you will need 2 pieces of waxed paper or plastic to keep the tortilla from sticking to the press. In México people cut plastic grocery bags for the plastic pieces. I used a ziploc bag

Cover the base of the tortilla press with a piece of plastic 

Put a small ball of dough on it, in the centre, and cover the dough with another sheet of plastic.

Firmly press down the top plate. Wiggle the press handle slightly from side to side to evenly distribute the dough. Lift the top plate. Rotate the tortilla 180 degrees ( a half turn) and firmly press again to make the tortilla thin as possible

To cook the tortillas use a skillet. Before starting to cook the tortillas warm it  medium heat for 5 minutes. Then place the firs tortilla on the pan for 1:30 minutes. Flip it and cook the other side for one minute.

Make sure to cover the dough with a dry kitchen towel to prevent them from drying.

If you are not going to consume them at the moment, and to keep them soft and flexible put them in a plastic bag. and store them in the refrigerator. Let them cool before storage.

 

Enjoy!
