Plantain Tortillas


    Cutting Board, Knife, Measuring Spoon, Pot, Food Processor, Rolling Pin, Rolling Mat or Flat Surface, Pizza Cutter, Dough Scraper, Frying Pan


    Green Plantains – 2
    Salt – 1 Teaspoon
    Corn Starch or Tapioca Starch- About 1/4 Cup
    Avocado Oil or Coconut Oil – About 1 Teaspoon

    *Makes about 7-10 tortillas depending on the size of your tortilla


    1. Bring a pot of water to a boil.
    2. Cut the ends off of the plantains, then cut into 4 equal pieces, then slice those pieces in half the long way so they look like little half watermelons.
    3. Add the cut plantains to the boiling water and cook for 15 minutes.
    4. Remove the plantain pieces from the pot. Cool slightly and take the peels off.
    5. Mix the plantains and salt in the food processor until it makes a ball, about 30 seconds.
    6. Dust a flat surface and rolling pin with corn starch and leave a pile of starch on the side for when the dough gets sticky.
    7. Mold the dough into a circle with your hands and roll it out with a rolling pin as thin as you can!
    8. Use a pizza cutter to make about 7 circles (or close to a circle) tortillas.
    9. Turn your stove to medium heat, add a dash of avocado oil to a frying pan and fry each side of every tortilla for 3 minutes.
    10. Enjoy warm with any delicious taco filling!
