May 19th, photo of the day: It’s a Wrap! (& WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge)

Well kids, I tried something new today, something I’ve been meaning to try for a few months.

I made whole wheat tortillas.

I thought it would be hard to do, I was wrong. This is probably the easiest bread-family recipe that I’ve ever made.

Ingredients: whole wheat flour, salt, oil.

I got the recipe from 100 Days of Real Food, a blog about cutting out processed food from your diet.

You can see the whole easy-peasy recipe here: Whole Wheat Tortillas

Hello Lovely

This particular little taco gem contains edamame, black beans, tomato, onion, lettuce, olives, cilantro, and homemade guacamole (yes, I made that little lovely too). Ah, so delicious.

They were good plain too, Isaac and I both were eating them as I took them out of the pan!

And a few more:

Doesn’t look so hard, does it?

Oh, and these are also my WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Hands  submission:

The enjoyment of a tortilla

High Contrast Tortilla

I couldn’t believe how simple these were. The ingredient list is short, they are SUPER delicious, the prep time is about 30 minutes, and you can freeze what you don’t eat. It’s a win-win, and they don’t contain any weird extra ingredients to assist with preservation. There’s no need, these guys won’t last long enough anyway!

…I just realized, I forgot to add lime to my taco. Dang! Guess I’ll have to have another one! ;)

  1. That looks delicious! I tried making pitas once, but that was a flop, and I never moved on to wraps because I thought you needed a special tortilla thingie to make it. I may try it now. Although I don’t have a mixer…hmmm.

    • They are delicious! And don’t worry about the mixer, I don’t have one either. I just used a little extra elbow grease and they turned out fine.
      I tried making pitas too, last week. They turned out okay, though they were too thin. When I cut the middles, to fill them, I would often cut through one side. :/ next time I’ll only make half what the recipe suggests and hopefully that will solve the problem!

      • The pita recipe I tried, the bread came out bitter and tough – too much flour, I think. Ah well!

        I definitely am not the one for baking. Cooking is easier, and more forgiving. :)
