VEGAN & GLUTEN-FREE OPTION

A gordita is prepared like a thick tortilla and authentically made with corn flour, but can also be made with wheat flour. I’ve experimented with many flours and mixtures to discover that all-purpose flour and potato flour make the most delicious thick tortilla.

I use this flour gordita recipe to also make an easy, homemade naan or flatbread for dinner since it’s so delicious!

HOW DO YOU MAKE GORDITAS FROM SCRATCH?

1. In a small bowl, or measuring cup, add 1 1/4 cup warm water, and sprinkle 1 tsp yeast on top. Allow it to sit for 5-15 mins until it’s foamy (this is called blooming the yeast). The variance of time is dependent on how warm or cold your kitchen is.

2. In a large bowl, add 2 cups of flour and stir in the bloomed yeast and water. Mix until smooth, adding more water as necessary. Cover the bowl and allow the dough to sit for roughly 30 mins.

3. Meanwhile, in a separate mixing bowl or in the bowl of your kitchen mixer, whisk together 1/4 cup potato flour, 1/2 cup flour, 1 1/4 tsp salt, and 2 tbsp of coconut oil. Whisk until you reach a crumbly, coarse texture.
Now, add the dough, and knead until it’s all well combined, soft, smooth, and slightly sticky. This will take several minutes. (I recommend using a stand mixture)

4. Place the dough into a large greased bowl, cover and allow to rise for 1 hour. After 1 hour, divide the dough into small evenly sized balls; you should end up with about 10.
Place them back into the bowl, cover them, and allow them to sit for another 15 mins.

5. Using a rolling pin, roll out each ball into a circle. Ensure they are thin because they will rise.
Meanwhile, heat a pan over medium heat.

6. Place one flatbread onto the hot skillet and cook for roughly 2 mins or until you notice it is getting spotty underneath. Flip, and cook till the other side is spotty as well. This should only take about a minute or so. If you notice any bubbles form, just poke them with a toothpick or fork. Remove them from the heat and repeat with the rest of your little dough balls.

    I made these last night in place of naan for my curry. Omg so easy and good! My non-vegan family loved every bite. And they keep well for leftovers

    I love how potato flour is gluten-free and how it makes the Gordita thick and fluffy! I’m not gluten-free so still used the potato flour with all-purpose flour and it turn out amazing. I’m sure you could try with a gluten-free flour substitute for all-purpose flour and get similar delicious results
