Quinoa Tortillas Recipe



Being Mexican always makes me crave good tacos but they are not necessarily healthy, and even though protein tacos are not so bad sometimes I crave that tortilla texture and richness that this dish represents.

(Keep reading for the full recipe)




I had to play with the recipe to achieve the flavor and texture I wanted for the tacos, that's why I tried to different combinations with seasonings until I got the right flavor. And that's how I discovered that this can also be used to make sopes and tostadas.

These can be made in advance and freeze them to be later used, I like to use parchment paper in between them to prevent them from sticking.

INGREDIENTS:

-1 cup Organic quinoa
-1 cup water
-Salt
-Chilli powder
-Onion powder
-Coconut oil or cooking spray


DIRECTIONS:
1. Blend the quinoa until it becomes a flour. Add the seasoning to taste, I usually add a small amount and if I feel like it needs more flavor I add more later on.
2. Add the water in small amounts at the time until you have a watery mix, it should be more runny than a pancake mix.
3. The first and fastest way to make them is in a pan, this works if you are making a small batch. In a hot pan add coconut oil and cook the mix in it, spreading it until you have the size and shape you need. You will notice it has cooked when it starts changing color. Flip and remove after the other size has cooked through.



4. The second method is by baking them. Pre- heat your oven to 375° and while it gets warm prepare a baking safe dish placing parchment paper. add the mix and form circled separated each by and inch. Cook for 5 minutes or until they are completely cooked.
5. Remove from the oven and place them in parchment paper or tap them with a napkin to remove any excess of oil.

You can always double the recipe it is quite simple specially if you are planning to freeze them. They last about 3-4 days in the fridge before they start having a funny smell.



Hope this recipe helps you satisfy your cravings in a healthier way. Thanks for reading my blog!

  1. Great recipe! What kind of blender are you using? Do you need a hi-wattage blender to turn whole quinoa into flour? I have a KitchenAid blender.
