Soft Wraps (GF) ★★★★1 review

Perfect for making tortillas, they are made with plantains which give them such a great softness and flexibility, so they can fold and wrap around salad or beans or whatever you are cooking! David's food journal: http://on.fb.me/1CP3D1e

Ingredients

  • 2 large green plantains
  • 1/3 cup of oil
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Method

1. Preheat oven to 200 C / 390 F

2. Chop and peel the plantains. They look like bananas but don’t peel like them so you will have to use a knife. Put the chunks, with the rest of the ingredients, into a blender. Use the tamper if required and blend until smooth.

3. Line a tray with baking paper, or to make is waste free, use reusable latex baking sheets. Drop a spoonful on to the baking sheet and smooth out into a disk, slightly bigger than a CD and about 1 cm thick. Repeat this with the rest of the mix over the baking sheet on a tray.

4. Bake for about 20 mins or until they are just starting to brown, if they brown too much they wont fold!

5. Once cooked, remove from the oven, and carefully peel off the baking sheet.

6. Serve with spicy beans, salad and fresh lime. These will keep in the fridge for a few days too!

Growing up on a small farm in northern Victoria, veganism was the furthest thing from my mind, other than being something I couldn’t spell. I thought the idea of it sounded ridiculous. I was well indoctrinated into the idea that animals are a commodity. See all recipes by David

    These were really good. I was skeptical that plantains could make “bread”, but was surprised at how easy it was and how good they tasted. My only complaint was the oven temperature, I assumed that 200 was Fahrenheit because the ingredients were all in imperial measurements, so the first batch took longer to cook because the oven was too low. For the second batch, I turned the heat up to 400 F and they turned out great.
