Whole Wheat Tortillas

3 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1 1/2 cups warm water

Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the water and mix into a nice dough.
Knead until soft and elastic.

At this point, you can let the dough rest for an hour or so, but it isn't
really neccessary. Pinch off a chunk of dough, roll into a smooth ball
(golf-ball size) with your hands, then flatten on a floured surface. With a
rolling pin, roll into a thin circle. Be generous with the flour to avoid
sticking.

Cook on a medium hot griddle until delicately beige and specked with brown.
It may take some practice to get the griddle the right temperature. You
don't have to use any oil on the griddle.

My only problem with these tortillas is keeping them around! My kids eat
them with beans, or with all fruit or jam, or just plain. They make a great
quick pizza crust --- add tomato sauce and toppings and put under the
broiler. We love them for burritos and quesadillas.

Besides being tasty and nutritious, they are also cheap --- this recipe
makes about a dozen for around 20 cents biggrin.gif
