I rarely eat bread so when I do it’s got to be good!
Today I needed some flat bread, wraps, tortilla-type things for something I wanted to make.
But the ones in the shop all looked kind of insipid - plus I checked the ingredients list and it had an awful lot of things listed for something so simple.
I only want to eat real food - made from things that I actually know what they are!
And since I only needed two tortillas - it was going to be a waste buying a pack and I couldn’t face buying that plastic wrapper waste either.
I think it was a moment of laziness - that I couldn’t bothered to make them.
But looking at those added ingredients, and thinking of both the food and plastic waste ... of course I can make them!
It's not like I haven't made THESE before.
To make four, you just need:
100g plain flour
a pinch of salt
Mix the ingredients in a bowl or - as I did - in the jug I used to measure the water, and knead a little to really combine.
Leave while you make whatever it is you’re making to put in them.
Divide the dough into four and roll into balls.
Put some more flour on the surface and use a rolling pin to make each ball into a tortilla shaped thing.
Non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and when hot add the tortilla - it’ll blister and cook in about a minute then turn and same again the other side.
And that’s it!
Super simple, real food, no waste ...
Oh and my filling today?
I diced some pork belly strips and fried (no added oil) in a non-stick pan with 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika, salt and pepper, a minced clove of garlic and a splash of light soy sauce - and another of water.
