Plantain Tortillas


It has been such a long time I have posted a recipe, a combination of factors - getting settled to my new home/kitchen, a lil hectic time at work, some travel, friends/family visiting, and a bit of more things at home. That does not mean I have not been cooking much, the kitchen experiments have continued, just did not get a chance to post anything. So hopefully that will change soon.

So here is a new recipe that we have loved and hence made quite a few times as part of reducing carbs, gluten and grains. This is a tortilla made with just plantains. So easy to make, almost as easy as unpacking and warming a pack of store bought tortillas, yet so much better in taste, texture and of course infinitely healthier 😊.






Ingredients:
  • Medium plantain - 2
  • Avocado oil - 3-4 Tbs
  • Sea salt- 1/2 tsp
  • Filtered water - 3-4 Tbs

Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 400 deg F
  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Peel the skin off the plantains and dice into cubes. 
  • Add to a blender jar with remaining ingredients and purée till smooth.
  • Take 1/4 cup of batter and spread on the parchment paper to 4-5 inch diameter circles. This makes about 5-6.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, check and bake for 5-10 minutes more. 
  • Use just like tortillas. Enjoy!!
