Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 4 cups spinach fresh
  • 1 cup cassava flour
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed ground (leave out if on strict AIP)
  • ¼ tsp Himalayan salt
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil

Instructions

  • Place water in a pot and bring to boil
  • Add spinach and steam until wilted (30 seconds or so)
  • Let spinach and water cool off. In the meantime, place all dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together
  • Add avocado oil to the dry ingredients and mix well
  • By now, the spinach and water are barely warm. Add them to a blender and blend on high speed until completely liquified
  • Add liquid spinach to the bowl and mix well with all the other ingredients, kneading them into a ball with your hands
  • Make 5 individual little balls of dough and place them on a plate
  • If you don't have a tortilla press, place each little ball of dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll out into a 6-inch disk with a rolling pin. Repeat the same process 5 times
  • Heat a pan on medium-high heat with no grease or oil. Once hot, place one tortilla at a time on the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for the same amount of time. Continue cooking all tortillas and transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Eat immediately and refrigerate the extra ones for up to a week

Notes

Please note: Instead of Baking Soda + Cream of Tartar, you can use 1 tsp of Baking Powder. Since baking powder contains corn starch, I'd rather not because this recipe is grain-free. Also, I have been out of Cream of Tartar and used Baking Soda by itself. The tortillas wer less fluffy, but came out really good.
