Wheat Dough and Oregano Tortillas
Compared to white flour, wholemeal flour is richer in minerals and provides satiating fiber. Essential oils from oregano promote the production of bile and can thus facilitate the digestion of fats. In addition, it has an antibacterial effect and can help with colds.
You can use basil or rosemary in place of the other herbs, and you can fill the tortillas with a variety of fresh vegetables and spreads. If you are used to whole wheat flour, you can also use it for the whole recipe.
- 17 ozs Pastry flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 handful oregano (finely chopped)
- vegetable oil
- Pastry flour (to work)
Add the pastry flour, salt, oregano and 2 tablespoons oil in a bowl and gradually add about 6 ounces of lukewarm water and knead to form a solid, smooth dough. It should not stick to your hands. Cover with a damp cloth and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
After resting the dough, divide it into 10-12 equal portions and shape each portion into a ball. Roll out each ball on a floured surface into thin patties.
Heat a pan with a little oil and fry the patties until golden brown start forming bubbles. Fry for about 1 minute on each so that they are not too dry. Prepare all the tortillas the same way.
Cool briefly before using.
