Plantain Tortillas, Vegan and Absurdly Scrumptious !!

Tasty, crispy, flaky goodness!  This is one of those things I was so overjoyed to discover.  And once I saw how easy they are to make, I loved it even more!

I am obsessed with food, I can't even really explain it.  If you are to, then you may understand.  But, when I discover a new recipe and it turns out well, I get this insane vibration of excitement inside me.  Onlookers may call it crazy, but I call it Success!

Anyway, if you like tacos, wraps, and rolls I urge you to give this a try.  I've just barely played around with this, and have loved it every time.  I've done the recipe a little different each time, and it honestly has always come out well.  So, you can adjust it if you like.

The plantain you choose can be varying in ripeness.  I find from green to spotted all work well.  Also, I haven't been able to successfully store these and keep to where they keep their great just baked texture, if you do let me know.  Until then, just bake as needed.  I've been consistently getting 6 tortillas per plantain.  I can eat 3 easy, so adjust recipe as needed.

Makes 6 medium tortillas

1 plantain
2 tbl melted unrefined virgin coconut oil
pinch of salt
1/8 cup to 1/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 350, line baking sheet with parchment

Cut the ends off of the plantain, and then slice all the way down one side to peel off the skin.  Slice plantain into chunks and throw in a food processor.  Add remaining ingredients except water, blend.  Slowly add water to thin a bit.  I usually use about 1/8 cup, but you want it like a thick soup.  Once that is done, spoon 6 equal amounts onto parchment lined baking sheet.  Then slowly spread out each bit into thin, but not holy circles.

Bake on bottom rack for 10-12 minutes, then flip around and bake for 10-12 minutes more.  If baking more and using 2 baking sheets; trade racks and flip half way through.  Remove from the oven once you see some brown spots happening.  Let cool for a few minutes, and carefully peel off sheet and fill to hearts content!  Let me know how yours turn out!

The first way I ate these guys...Simple avocados, lettuce, and cilantro, and I probably added some sriracha
