Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups cassava flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 3 cups packed spinach
  • 2 Tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • plus 34 Tablespoons tapioca flour for dusting

Instructions

  1. In a small saucepan, simmer together spinach and water. Cook 2-3 minutes or until wilted. Add to a blender and blend until silky smooth. You should have exactly 1 cup spinach.  Strain if you have any small bits.  Add honey and oil to spinach mixture, stir.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together cassava flour and salt. Slowly pour in hot spinach mixture into cassava flour. If using a stand mixer, whisk for 2 minutes with a flat beater attachment. If mixing dough by hand, use a danish dough whisk or rubber scrape
  3. You can now heat your cast iron skillet to medium low heat.
  4. Take a ball of dough and roll it into a disk. Dust your surface with tapioca flour and roll dough out to 6 inches wide. Be sure to continue dusting with flour throughout if needed to prevent dough from sticking. Use a pizza spatula to lift tortillas onto skillet since these tortillas are very delicate.
  5. Place your tortilla on the skillet and flip once bubbles have formed, about 15-30 seconds. Flip again and once brown spots have coated both sides, place tortilla in a tortilla warmer or aluminum foil to steam.
  6. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Serve warm or use at room temperature as wraps. Enjoy!

Notes

  • It is best to use a pizza spatula to lift tortillas onto skillet.  If tortillas are tearing, roll tortillas out a little thicker.
  • If tortillas start to stick to your skillet, lower the flame, it is too hot.
  • Replace honey with alternative sweetener to make these vegan-coconut nectar, date syrup or maple syrup.
  • Your dough should be soft and pliable like play dough, if your dough is too hard, slowly add more hot water.
