Fava Tortillas


1 cuppotato starch (not the same as potato flour)
1 cup + 2 tbsp fava flour
1 tspxanthan gum
1/4 tspsalt
1/4 cupcanola oil
1/2 tspbaking powder
2/3 cup water
  1. In a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment, add all the ingredients.
  2. Starting on low speed, mix for 1 minute. Turn the speed up to medium and mix for another 2-3 minutes until the dough is well-combined. The texture should be soft and pliable but not sticky. 
  3. Remove the dough from the mixing bowl and wrap it in plastic wrap. Let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Portion out 2 tbsp (40 g) of dough and roll it into a ball. Sandwich the dough ball between two pieces of parchment and, using a rolling pin, roll it into an 8″ round. It should be thin enough to see your hand through the tortilla.
  5. Heat a large non-stick pan on medium-high. Once the pan is hot, place the tortilla on the pan. Small bubbles should start to form in the tortilla almost immediately. Cook for about 2 minutes per side until the edges are slightly crispy and the bubbles start to turn dark brown.
  6. Remove the tortilla from the pan and cover immediately with a dry, clean towel to keep it warm and soft.
  7. Repeat with remainder of the dough.

Chef’s Notes: These tortillas can be used for many applications, such as quesadillas, tacos, and fajitas.
