Plantain Tortillas

These tortillas are made of plantain…need I say more? They are going to be delicious.

You will need:
6 plantains, ends removed and halved.
1/ 4 cup + 4 tablespoon flour divided.
2 tablespoon coconut oil divided.

Method:
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil with the plantains. Once boiling, continue for 15 minutes. Remove plantains from water and let cool. In 2 batches, add half the plantains, 1/ 8 cup + 2 teaspoon flour, and 1 teaspoon coconut oil to a food processor. Let run for about 1 minute, or until an elastic dough has formed. If the dough doesn’t form at this stage, add another tablespoon of flour and continue processing. Once you have the dough, start with small golf ball sized pieces and work them by hand into flat discs on a well-oiled surface. Oil a rolling pin, and use it to create a smooth, round tortilla. You want this to be a little larger in diameter than your bowl.

Press the bowl into the dough, remove the cut edges, and gently peel the tortilla from the surface.

Once they are all formed, cook them for about 2 minutes on each side in a very lightly oiled pan- cast iron works well for this. Stack the cooked tortillas on a large cloth napkin, folding to cover after adding each one. Enjoy with any filling you wish.
