E-Z Tortillas Experiment Diary

As I stated recently I was going to try the E-Z tortilla recipe from Rotational Bon Appetit Cookbook obtained from the Environmental Health Center-Dallas.  My plans were to keep a running diary and post after I had tried more than flour.  I have decided to go ahead and post my first try with my notes.  I will be trying again soon and will post on my new attempts. It is exceedingly hot right now which is not conducive to my wanting to bake or cook.

I made a half recipe using only garbanzo bean flour.  I discovered that the flour requires less water than I put in it.  I kneaded in more flour and then baked the tortillas in a cast iron skillet.  I don’t think I like plain garbanzo bean tortillas.  They are a little bitter.   The tortillas are not difficult to make but each flour has its own characteristics which might require more/less water.  Note:  Try replacing some of the garbanzo bean flour with either a gluten-free flour mix or with potato or tapioca starch to lighten the flour and the taste.  Use less water, adding in more, 1 tsp. at a time if necessary.

Will try the tortillas using only a gluten-free flour mixture for my next attempt.
