This recipe is especially for my THM friends who have the munchies but are missing the crunchies!
I came up with this idea after making Gwen’s Bread (which you can find over here at Gwen’s Nest) It’s an easy, refrigerator sour dough, maybe not quite the super food that you would get from catching all those live spores, but honestly I don’t think I could be nurturing enough to go that route.
But with a few tweaks, I have been making soft, yummy wraps and crispy spicy chips.
So here it what you need.
1 cup of water
2 tsp yeast
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
3 tsp truvia or dash of stevia powder
(add any other spices you like, chili powder, curry, garlic, oregano, cayenne pepper… you get the idea)
Dissolve yeast into luke warm water, set aside and let foam
Add flours and spices to a bowl and mix
Add water & yeast and stir with a wooden spoon until there are no dry spots. No need to knead!
Let rise for 3 to 4 hours at room temperature then transfer the the refrigerator with a loose cover.
Leave it there for 5 days.
When you are ready to use, bring it to room temperature.
You may use all of it or take out just a handful for one or two wraps.
Flour your counter and rolling pin and roll out into a tortilla shape.
Get it nice and thin and round if you are talented like my dad who can roll the most beautiful, round tortilla you have ever seen. But don’t worry, it will taste good even if it is the shape of Africa.
Plop it onto a nice hot griddle or pan. Cook on one side for 30 seconds or so and then flip. Cook the other side 1 to 2 min and then flip back to the first side to brown slightly.
Fill with lean meats and veggies for a tasty and filling E meal.
But if Chips is what your are aiming for, there is just one more step. Cut the wrap into square or triangle or whatever shape strikes your fancy and lay them on a wax paper lined plate. Pop them in the microwave for 1 minute.
I am not gonna like. They don’t taste like Doritos… But feel free to spice them up as much as you like and maybe you will get close. They hold up great for dips and salsa but are delicious and crispy all on there own.
(If you are a ThMer, just remember to keep these in an E setting) Enjoy!
