Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas (tortilhas de batata doce)

IMG_6269These easy homemade Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas are great just by themselves, but also to use as a base for tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and, nachos, or as a holder for leftover vegetable stews and curries.

The vegan sweet potato tortillas are yeast, sugar and, oil free. And made with only 2 ingredients, and I need to say that the first time I did them I ate all the tortillas myself in just one go.

  • 1 cup sweet potato (cooked and mashed) (~2 medium potatoes)
  • 1 cup wholemeal flour
  • a pinch sea salt

Steam or boil the sweet potatoes until tender. Then mash the potatoes (without water), add the flour and salt, while they’re still hot.

Using your hands or a food processor combine well and knead to form a soft and elastic dough.

Create a log with the dough and cut small portions (approx. 10). Dust your hands with flour, roll the dough in your hand and then flatten it so they resemble tortillas.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.

Place each tortilla on the skillet and let it cook for approximately a minute or until it bubbles up. Then flip it over to cook on the other side.

Stack the cooked flatbreads on a plate as you go, and cover with a clean kitchen towel to keep warm.

  • They can be made gluten-free with chickpea flour or rice flour, but any flour will work for this recipe.
  • Add more flour to adjust the consistency.
  • Works fine with a mix of sweet and normal potatoes.
  • Add extra flavor with, sesame seeds dried garlic and onion flakes.

Estas tortilhas de batata-doce veganas são feitas com apenas 2 ingredientes, e eu vou contar aqui um segredo, da primeira vez que as fiz, comi todas as tortilhas de uma só vez sozinha.

  • 1 caneca de batata doce (cozida e em purê) (~ 2 batatas médias)
  • 1 caneca de farinha integral
  • sal a gosto

Cozer as batatas a vapor ou em água a ferver até que estejam macias. De seguida, esmagar as batatas (sem água), e adicionar a farinha e o sal, enquanto ainda estão quentes.

Com as mãos ou a ajuda de um processador de alimentos combinar bem, e amassar até que se forme uma massa macia e elástica.

Moldar um tronco com a massa e cortar em aproximadamente 10 partes. Com as mãos com farinha rolar cada pedaço em bolinhas e depois achatar para que fiquem com a forma de tortilhas.

Colocar as tortilhas numa frigideira antiaderente em lume médio-alto e deixar cozinhar por  1 minuto ou até que comecem a formar bolhas de ar. De seguida, virar e deixar cozinhar do outro lado.

Ir empilhando as tortinhas cozinhada num prato e cobrir com uma toalha de cozinha limpa para não arrefecer.

  • Estas tortilhas pode ser sem glúten, é só substituir para farinha de grão de bico ou farinha de arroz, mas qualquer farinha funciona bem nesta receita.
  • Adicionar mais farinha caso seja necessário ajustar a consistência.
  • funciona bem com mistura de batata normal e batata doce
  • Adicionar sabor extra com, sementes de sésamo, alho e cebola seca.
