Here's what you'll need.
- 1C whole wheat flour (or white)
- 1/4C cold water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt (recommended)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder (optional)
- seasonings such as oregano, onion powder, or herbs (optional)
Now roll them out. For this I recommend rolling between two non-stick surfaces, such as flexible cutting mats (a dollar store or grocery store should have 3 packs for $3-5), silicone baking sheets (also can be had for a few bucks), or something similar. So put a dough ball on a non-stick surface, then optionally put another on top. Now roll it out with a rolling pin if you have one, or a bottle of wine/oil/beer if you don't. It is easiest if you flatten it out by hand as much as you can first! It may take a couple tries to get them as flat (and as such wide) as you like, but you will definitely improve. Or you could just get a tortilla press online, though I have yet to give in.
Now heat a pan on the stove to medium-high heat. Once it seems up to heat, throw a wrap on the pan (no greasing necessary). After 15-30 seconds you should be able to jiggle the pan and have the wrap freely slide around, and this is useful for ensuring it doesn't burn. Give it about 1-2 minutes on that side, until you start to see a bubble or two, then flip it over for another 1-2 minutes. Now sit it on a towel to cool, and repeat for the rest of your future wraps! As they are delicious warm, I like use one right after I make them.
I love making these wraps because it is much cheaper than buying them, can be as healthy as I want, and makes eating them much more enjoyable knowing that I hand-crafted each one. Common uses are eggs with veggies in the morning or your typical taco fare. You can also make mini flatbread pizzas, or sandwich some cheese and veggies in between two for an extra tasty treat!
