A few days ago we went "plastic free fresh produce shopping" in a small Chinese store in Montreal.
As usual we walked past a lot of shelves with plastic food and my boyfriend stopped in front of one having Tortillas in bags saying: "Oh I wish we could make some wraps again."
Luckily one day before a friend of mine (I just wrote a Guest Blog Post for her, you can check it out on her website -> "A Plastic Free Living, A Beginners Guide.") shared a Recipe for an eggless Omelette made with chickpea flour. I remembered that the Zero Waste Store Epicerie Loco a 10 Minutes walk from our Airbnb had chickpea flour in bulk and I had a great idea. Why not make homemade Tortilla wraps. I tried a different recipe once with wheat flour, but its been a hard kind of dough and it didn´t turned out well.
So I thought I will try the Chickpea Flour one. Also because its a hell of an easy recipe.
Its also a vegan, gluten free and low carb recipe. And is a good protein source.
Thanks so much for sharing the recipe Kris :D
You need Chickpea Flour, water and if you like a few spices like salt, pepper or chili flakes thats all.
I used 1 Cup of Flour, and less than 1 cup of water. The amount of water depends on how thin you like your Tortillas. The Chickpea Flour had a few lumps so I needed to riddle it through a strainer to avoid lumps in the Tortillas.
The dough should be like a crepe dough and you also make the Tortillas like Crepes in a pan with a little bit butter, coconut or olive oil. Fry on medium heat for about 1-2 minutes each side.
I made some fillings like Tomato Salsa, Kale with garlic, a few roasted veggies and Tofu (also unwrapped in bulk from Loco).
We had a few savory wraps and filled the last one with peanutbutter and jam.
A great alternative to Wheat Tortillas in plastic bags ;)
Enjoy and feel free to leave me a comment how you liked the recipe if you make them.
