It is possible to find tortillas that follow the guidelines of the Daniel Fast, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy. If you’d like to make your own, here is a basic recipe for you to follow. Start with your choice of whole grain flour, and stuff with your favorite filling.
Whole Grain Tortillas
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup brown rice or soy flour
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal, optional
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
Mix flours, flaxseed meal, salt, and water in a food processor until dough forms a ball. Turn dough onto a floured work surface, and knead for 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let dough sit at room temperature 30 minutes.
Divide dough into 8 equal pieces, and roll each piece into an 8-inch circle to ¼-inch thickness. Rub a skillet with olive oil, and set over medium-low heat. Cook tortilla for 1 minute. Turn over, and cook 2-3 minutes on second side or until flatbread bubbles up. Repeat for remaining tortillas.
Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 tortilla)
