Fennel & Apple Salad (RAW)
Banana Coconut Pie (RAW)
2 cups masa harina
1-¼ cups of warm water
1 tsp arrow root powder
(Tapioca starch - Gluten Free)
2 pieces of round plastic cut out from a bag. (I use freezer bags or cling wrap)
Use a wooden bowl to combine the Masa Harina and water. Mix well until the water is absorbed evenly and the dough forms a ball.
We are looking for a soft dough consistency; it should not stick to your hands. If it does, add a little more of masa harina. If it looks dry, breakable or crumbly, add more water.
Preheat a griddle or heavy skillet on medium flame. This has to be ready when you start pressing
Using a tortilla press or a heavy dish, place a ball of the dough between the two plastic pieces and press to form a flat 10-12 cm round tortilla.
Open the tortilla press or remove the heavy dish if using to press the tortillas, peel the top plastic off.
Place the tortilla on the griddle and cook for 45 seconds. The edge will begin to dry out. Turn over and continue to cook for 1 minute until brown patches form. The cooking time is about 2 minute’s total. Cook until the tortilla begins to puff. Tap lightly with your fingertips to allow even puffing.
Fill with your favourite ingredients (organic meat or beans, lettuce, salsa, avocado, tomato, cheese, sour cream, coriander, parsley) and serve warm
