Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas

Making tortillas from scratch allows for better quality and more fresh ingredients! Not to mention they are far less expensive than store bought. Just be sure to give yourself time enough to make them (about 50 minutes). Here is a quick, easy and delicious recipe found at The Lean Green Bean.

2 cups whole wheat flour
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup warm water

Mix flour, oil and salt. Slowly add water. Knead 2 minutes. Let rest 20 minutes. Cook on each side about 1 minute per side. Use within 1-2 days or freeze.

Tip: I live in an exceptionally dry climate and I found that you need to cover the dough while resting.
