Incredible Vegan Flour Tortillas

Homemade flour tortillas are incredible and worth the effort. After experimenting with various recipes I finally found one that works well. These come out nice and thin and the taste is amazing.



Here’s the recipe:


3 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1/4 cup vegan margarine

1 cup warm water


Mix flour, salt and shortening by hand until mixture becomes coarse in texture. (It helps to cut the margarine in small pieces first before adding). Add a bit of water at a time. Mix until the dough forms a nice round ball that sticks together. Knead for 5 - 7 minutes. (This can also be done with an electric mixer).


Shape dough into approximately 2” balls. Place a little margarine on your hands and grease the balls to prevent them from drying out. Cover the balls with a towel and let sit for 10 minutes.


On a lightly floured surface, roll dough balls with rolling pin into 10” circles.




Place tortillas on a hot skillet. When lightly brown flip and cook the other side.



Makes approximately 12 tortillas.


Enjoy!
