Vegan Gluten Free Tex-Mex Tortillas

DSC_0010Vegan Gluten Free Tortillas
1 cup besan (chick pea flour)
1 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cups warm water

In a small mixing bowl combine besan and salt. Add half of the water and mix well with a whisk until the mixture is creamy and there are no lumps. Add the remaining water and let rest for at least 20 minutes. Preheat a medium sized heavy frying pan (I like cast iron- nature’s non-stick) over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add enough olive oil to coat the pan, pour the batter into the pan to cover about 1/2 of the bottom then twirl the pan to coat the bottom with the batter. When the batter is set on top it should be golden on the bottom and ready to flip to cook to the other side. Stack cooked tortillas/wraps on a plate. Repeat until all of the batter has been prepared.
