I have never been the biggest fan of wraps, there was a time when the concept of wraps was all the rage, better for you than bread, lighter, different etc... I always us found them a little dry and sweaty, sitting in their plastic wrapping going a bit soggy. The thought of them was just a bit grim. Don't even get me started on weight watchers wraps. *shudder*
There has been the odd occasion where I have eaten a wrap in a restaurant and enjoyed it, but I figured they must make their own which sounds super complicated.
Boy, was I wrong....
Home-made tortilla wraps were so incredibly easy to do and the end product was a beautifully soft, pliable wrap which I immediately filled with delicious falafel and practically swallowed whole. They also freeze really well so you don't have to be making them all the time.
- 175g Plain or Bread Flour
- 100g Spelt Flour
- 75ml Skimmed Milk
- 25ml Oil
- 1 teaspoon Baking powder
- half a teaspoon Salt
I ate about 3 of them fresh and they were heavenly, then I layered the rest with greaseproof paper and froze them in a ziplock freezer bag. This meant I could get one out at a time, they weren't quite as lovely defrosted as they were fresh but they still were tastier than shop bought by a mile!
This recipe made 8 decent sized tortillas which worked out at 4pp each on weight watchers.
I replaced a third of the flour with spelt which gave a nice extra dimension, but you can just use all plain flour or bread flour if you prefer. Next I want to try some other styles of flatbread and maybe some different flavours.
Feel free to share your own flatbread/tortilla recipes below, I really want to get experimenting with different ones! Oh and let me know your favourite fillings too!
