The tortilla recipe below is a perfect way to serve a table of people with varying dietary needs. They hold together just like a traditional tortilla and can be filled with whatever foods best suit your needs. We’ve developed and tested it, as always, for maximum deliciousness and optimum macronutrient ratios.
- 1½ tsp psyllium husks, ground into a powder (or use psyllium powder)
- ¼ tsp chia seeds, ground to a meal
- 3 tbsp almond flour
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp hot water
- avocado oil, for brushing the pan
Tip before starting: I use a coffee grinder to grind a few tablespoons of psyllium husks at a time and the same for chia seeds. Then, I store them in jars. It makes grinding them easier, and means that I have them already ground when I need them.
Once ground, combine 1 1/2 tsp psyllium husks and 1/4 tsp chia seeds with 3 Tablespoons almond flour and a pinch of salt in a small bowl.
Add water. Stir and form into a small ball or disc of dough.
Heat a cast iron skillet and brush lightly with oil.
Roll the dough between two pieces of parchment paper into a 4- to 5-inch tortilla.
Remove the top piece of parchment and turn the tortilla onto a hot cast iron skillet. Remove the remaining piece of parchment.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until lightly golden.
Fill with your favorite fillings as you would a tortilla. Serve and Enjoy!
