Sweet Potato Tortillas

Love sweet potatoes? Here’s one more fun way to enjoy them! Whether you like to use tortillas to make wraps, tacos, pizzas, quesadillas, sandwiches, nachos or any other favorite meal, a good tortilla recipe is the foundation. In this recipe, sweet potato comes together along with cassava, chickpea, and arrowroot flour to make flexible, pretty, orange-hued tortillas that also taste great!

Sweet potatoes are one of the best anti-cancer foods and can particularly help to prevent breast, colon, lung, skin, and oral cancers. Sweet potatoes are known for being easy to digest and are very good for ulcers, inflamed colons, digestive disorders, and constipation. Sweet potatoes contain compounds called phytochelatins that can bind to heavy metals such as lead, mercury, copper, & cadmium and safely remove them through the body.

Sweet Potato Tortillas

Ingredients:
2 medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and diced (yields 1 cup mashed)
1 1/2 cup cassava flour, more if needed
1 tbsp arrowroot flour
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 - 1 tbsp warm water, if needed

Directions:
Place the sweet potatoes in. Cover with a lid and steam for 10-15 minutes, until tender. Remove and cool.

Place the sweet potatoes in a food processor and blend until smooth. Measure out 1 cup of sweet potato mash and leave the rest for another recipe.

Add the cup of sweet potato to a large bowl with the cassava flour, arrowroot flour, chickpea flour and sea salt. Using a potato masher, mash until you get a crumbly mixture. Set the potato masher aside and working with your hands, add water one tablespoon at a time while kneading. Depending on the moisture content of the flours and sweet potato mash you may not need to add any water at all. Knead the dough until it is smooth and uniform, about 3-5 minutes. The dough must not be sticky at all - if it is, add more cassava flour.

When ready, cut the dough into 4 even pieces. Working one piece at a time, roll each of them out between two sheets of parchment paper to 1/8 inch thick. Keep the remaining pieces in plastic wrap so that they don’t dry out. Remove the top sheet and place the lid of a saucepan (7 inches in diameter) on top. Circle around the lid with a knife to create a tortilla shape. Remove the excess dough.

Place a non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Flip the tortilla onto the pan and carefully remove the parchment paper right away. If you leave it for too long the paper might stick to the dough. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Repeat with rest of the dough. Best kept at room temperature in an air-tight container.

Makes 4-5 medium-sized tortillas
