Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 10 gorditas
  1. In a small bowl, or measuring cup add 1¼ cup warm water, and sprinkle the 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.
  3. Mix until smooth, adding more water as necessary.
  4. Cover the bowl and allow the dough to sit for roughly 30 mins.
  5. Meanwhile, in a separate mixing bowl or in the bowl of your kitchen mixer, whisk together the potato flour, ½ cup flour, salt, and oil. Whisk until you reach a crumbly, coarse texture.
  6. 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)
  7. Place the dough into a large greased bowl, cover and allow to rise for 1 hour.
  8. After 1 hour, divide the dough into small evenly sized balls; you should end up with about 10.
  9. Place them back into the bowl, cover them, and allow them to sit for another 15 mins.
  10. Using a rolling pin, roll out each ball into a circle. Ensure they are thin because they will rise.
  11. Meanwhile, heat a pan over medium heat.
  12. Place one flatbread onto the hot skillet and cook for roughly 2 mins or until you notice it is getting spotty underneath.
  13. Flip, and cook till the other side is spotty as well. This should only take about a minute or so.
  14. If you notice any bubbles form, just poke them with a toothpick or fork.
  15. Remove them from the heat and repeat with the rest of your little dough balls.
  16. Now use your flour gorditas to make a gordita crunch for a meal!
