lazy lady tortillas

one big thing that I was unhappy about missing out on in having a zero waste lifestyle was tortillas. delicious soft wraps for every meal under the sun. I didn’t think I could function without them. After some trial and error (and one weird gritty pancake experience) I’ve decided on a pretty decent tortilla recipe.

Lazy Lady’s Tortillas (Makes 8 dinner plate-ish sized tortillas)

  • 2-2.5 cups all-purpose flour (you will need a bit extra to flour your board and rolling pin)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil/vegetable oil

In decently sized bowl, mix the wet ingredients and then add the dry. Knead together to form a quite solid dough. Something like this:

~ Leave for 10 mins ~

Divide in to 8 lumps and gently roll them out until they’re almost see through. I find it helpful also to stretch them out on my hand.

Then you heat them in a dry non-stick pan for not very long at all frankly. Just until they are easy to shift or wee bubbles start to form.

Flip them and cook the other side for ~15 seconds. Keep warm/covered until serving.

They do keep relatively well, but only for a few days at most!


My favourite lazy person snack is just these and some sick nut-based spreads.

There’s nothing like fancy spreads and fresh homemade tortillas.
