Tortillas are such a basic recipe and easy to prepare in and out of the kitchen. I headed out to the bush to create this recipe on a portable fuel stove during a hike. With only a few lightweight ingredients you can create a delicious base for a wrap, pizza or calzone for around $1.00.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes / Cooking Time: 15 minutes / Makes 6-8 tortillas
- 2 cups of plain flour (use wholemeal for extra fibre)
- ½ cup of water (ideally warm or at room temperature)
- 3 tbp canola or olive oil
- pinch of salt
- Olive oil spray (optional, for cooking)
- Combine flour, water, oil, and salt and mix until it forms a smooth dough
- Lightly flour your hands and mould the dough into a ball.
- Divide into 6-8 pieces (depending on how large you want your tortilla)
- Form the tortillas by either patting them flat or using a rolling pin to flatten them into circles
- Cook each tortilla on a flat pan on the stove until brown specks start appearing on the sides. Flip the tortilla and cook on the opposite side.
- Serve with your choice of topping or in my case, I made into a ‘pizza’ sandwich with basil pesto, tomato and low fat cheese.
