Shabbat tortillas!

I think I have a new favorite food, tortillas!

I have tried to make homemade tortillas in the past, but the rolling part just never worked out. I ended up with ugly, thick tortillas. But now that I have a tortilla press, we have been making them all the time.

The part I love the most is the fact that it really is a family affair. Doug loves making tortillas with me when he has the time. He particularly likes mashing the dough balls.

The kids have also learned how to do everything from pressing the balls to cooking the tortillas. The only thing that is still exclusive to me is the actual mixing and kneading of the dough. I suppose this could be seen as good and bad. Smile

A great thing about tortillas is their versatility on Shabbat. Tortillas, homemade or otherwise, can be used for a variety of different meals on Shabbat, with minimal preparation. Here are some ideas to get you going:

  • filled with tuna or chicken salad
  • peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, or pb and honey or banana – you get the idea.
  • with bean dip, even better if the bean dip is lacto fermented
  • made into mini pizzas and warmed after the sun goes down on Saturday night
  • with shredded meat – make ahead: put a roast in your crockpot with boullion and minced garlic, some water in the bottom and cook until tender. Chop it up with a meat cleaver, and serve warm or cold.
  • filled with sprouts and other salad ingredients

What would you put in a tortilla?
