 I have been to two different dinners now that have had these tortillas and I don’t really miss the corn. My friend and PCF member, Ana Ortega, turned me onto the recipe and it’s a real winner. Enjoy!
Plantain TortillasIngredients:

1 large green plantain, roughly sliced

2 eggs

2 tsp arrowroot powder

1 tbsp garlic powder

2 tbsp melted coconut oil

1 tsp lime juce

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp salt (we advise against using ripe plantains but if you do, use around 1 tbsp salt, or to taste)

A dash of pepper

Directions:

Put everything in a food processor and mix until the texture is smooth and creamy.

Put parchment paper on a baking sheet and spoon the mixture onto the parchment paper (6 tortillas on each baking sheet). If you used a large plantain, your mixture should yield about 10-12 tortillas.

Make sure to flatten the tortillas with a spoon and that each tortilla is the same thickness from the center to the edge. You’ll want these roughly 1/8 inch thick, and about 4-5 inches in diameter. 

Cook at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the edges start to turn a nice golden brown.

Once they’re done, wait for a minute for them to cool down and peel them off the parchment paper.
