Do you guys use Picnik for your photo editing?

I’m so sad that they’re shutting down on Thursday.  Looks like I’m going to have to find a new editing program.

What photo editing software do you guys use?

Anyway, back to business…these breakfast burritos are awesome!  And they’re healthy.  If I could eat them every day, I would.  Sadly, I live in the dorms and I have a meal plan so I have to eat in the university cafeteria for meals.

If you don’t have a meal plan at a dorm, then you should eat these every day for breakfast.

Whole Wheat Tortillas from Scratch

Sometimes I don’t like buying packaged items from the store just because I don’t know what goes into them.

Most of the time, I don’t worry about it, but when I get the chance, I try to recreate store-bought food items.

For example, these tortillas.

I had no idea how easy it is to make homemade tortillas.  Only 4 ingredients, super easy to make, and so healthy!  These are the way to go.

I got this recipe from 100 Days of Real Food and I recommend it 100%.

Check out the next post for another awesome giveaway.

Whole-Wheat Flour Tortillas
From: 100 days of real food 

YIELD: 12 TORTILLAS

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. In the bowl of a mixer set with a dough hook (or paddle), pour in the flour, oil and salt.
  2. Beat with the dough hook until crumbly, about 3 to 5 minutes. Scrape the sides as needed.
  3. With the mixer running, gradually add the warm water and continue mixing until the dough is smooth, about 3 minutes.
  4. Take out the dough and divide it into 12 equal sized pieces.
  5. Using the palms of your hand roll each piece into a round ball and flatten it out on a baking tray or board. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for at least 15 minutes or up to one hour.
  6. Heat a cast iron skillet, griddle or 12-inch skillet over med-high heat. The pan should be fairly hot before you begin cooking the tortillas.
  7. On a lightly floured board or counter top, use a rolling pin to turn each ball into a 8 to 10 inch flat circle. Be careful not to use more than a teaspoon or two of flour when rolling out each ball into a tortilla because too much excess flour will burn in the pan.
  8. Grease the pan with a touch of oil and then carefully transfer each tortilla, one at a time, to the pan and cook until puffy and slightly brown, about 30 to 45 seconds per side.
  9. Set aside on a plate to cool slightly. Refrigerate or freeze. (I left mine out at room temperature and they were fine for a week.)
