These tortillas are made with pre-cooked super-grain quinoa and whole wheat flour together with a few other simple ingredients. They have a fresh clean flavor, like a corn tortilla but softer for tacos and quesadillas. If you are just starting out on how to cook with flour, these are a fantastic way to begin. We think you’ll agree, they’re amazing!
Yield 1 dozen tortillas
2 ½ cups Panhandle Milling Whole Wheat Flour
½ cup cooked quinoa (measure after cooking)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
¾ cup water
¼ cup Vegetable Oil
Wash and sanitize hands, tools and all work surfaces. In a large bowl, combine the flour, quinoa, salt, and baking powder.
Heat water to a rolling boil in a small saucepan or in the microwave and dump into the dry ingredients. Add the oil. Stir until smooth and combined, about 2 minutes. Allow dough to cool for a few minutes.
Knead 3-4 minutes by hand. Divide into 12 equal pieces and roll between two pieces of parchment paper until ¼ inch thin, about 4 inches in diameter.
Heat a large 12-inch griddle to medium high heat and cook the tortillas 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Place cooked tortillas in a covered casserole and continue cooking tortillas on the griddle until all the tortillas are cooked. Serve warm.
Wash and sanitize all work surfaces after contact with raw dough and flour.
