after 2 days of sprouting wheatberries sprouted wheatberries
sprouted wheat tortilla ingredients 1 cup hard wheatberries I actually used a combination of hard wheat, spelt, and kamut. 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten (optional) 2 tablespoons olive oil (optional)
step 1 After grains have sprouted, mix with salt, baking powder, and gluten. Pulse in food processor for 90 seconds and slowly add oil if using. Mixture should form a very soft ball.
step 2 separate dough into small balls, approximately 2 inches in diameter. It is helpful to add some oil to your hands before handling dough.
step 3 carefully roll dough into circles about 1/8 inch thick and transfer to a medium low temperature cast iron skillet that has been oiled. (I used coconut oil) Heat on both sides for about 3 minutes until tortillas are lightly browned but still soft and pliable.
breakfast! Add a fresh egg, some sprouted adzuki and alfalfa, and a bit of arugula...bon appetit!
