Vegan Flour Tortillas

1 cup white flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tbs oil (I used canola)
about 1/4 cup water

Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Add the oil and water, then quickly whisk together with your fingers. Squeeze the ingredients together until it forms a stiff dough. Add more water, little by little, if needed.

Kneed the dough until smooth and elastic. Wrap it up in plastic or place in a greased bowl with a damp cloth on top. At this point, you should let it rest for at least 5 minutes. You can get away with not doing this step, but I found the dough easier to roll out after resting it. Apparently, this makes it taste better too.

After resting, divide the dough up into four equal parts. Form each piece into ball. On a clean surface, roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it is VERY thin. Repeat with all pieces.

Place a non-stick pan on the burner and turn to medium heat. When the pan is hot, place one tortilla. Cook each side about 1-2 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the colour turns from opaque to white. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

Fill the tortillas right away with anything you want.
