Spelt Flour Tortillas

“What’s on your plate?”


READY IN: 1 hr

YIELDS: 8 tortillas


1 1⁄2 cups  spelt berries, ground in a mill or 2  cups  spelt flour

1  teaspoon sea salt

1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder

1  tablespoon oil (Avocado, grape seed are best)

3⁄4 cup spring hot water


1 In a bowl, mix all ingredients well.

2 Cover and let sit in a warm place for 20 minutes.

3 Divide into 8 equal parts and let sit, covered, another 20 minutes.

4 Roll each ball out to a 6- or 7-inch circle shape. I’ve found it helps to flatten each ball with your hand. Then take the rolling pin and roll from the center outwards, back and forth a few times as you go around the circle. When it starts to get thinner, take your left hand (if you’re right handed) and turn the tortilla a couple inches. Use your right hand to use the rolling pin (holding in the middle) and roll from the center outwards. Keep turning and rolling until it is paper thin.

5 Preheat a skillet on medium high heat.

6 Place a tortilla into the skillet and watch until bubbles form. This won’t take long.

7 After bubbles form, and the bottom is lightly brown (or there are darker spots), flip over, press down once or twice, and cook for about 30-45 seconds, or if smoke appears.

8 Cook remaining tortillas, watching carefully, and place in a plastic bag, with wet paper towels in between them (or at least on top and bottom of stack) to keep them soft and moist.

9 Refrigerate for later or remove the paper towels and freeze.
