For this is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘The jar of flour will not be used up and the jug of oil will not run dry until the day the Lord sends rain on the land.’” 1 Kings 17:14
Continue to reap the benefits and nutty flavor of buckwheat! It is so easy to incorporate into any flour containing recipe. As a matter of fact, replacing a 1/4 of the flour in your favorite recipe with buckwheat enhances nutritional content. It also boosts flavor.
These homemade tortilla shells are a good example of incorporating this little trick. I think of the widow Elijah convinced to “make him a small loaf of bread” when I make these shells. Flat breads were common in biblical days. Often times, the only meal available for such as the poor widow relinquishing all her reserves for the prophet.
All the while, God had a plan to supply her abundantly……all she has to do is exercise a little faith. That is usually what He requires of us as well, a little faith. Faith to trust Him for what’s good in the garden for our bodies. Faith to explore new options to better our health.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these shells; and it won’t relinquish all your reserves!
2 Cups Organic Unbleached Flour
1 Cup Organic Buckwheat Flour
2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
1/3 Cup Avocado Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Cup Hot Water
Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the oil to the hot water and stir into the flour mixture. Roll out onto a lightly floured surface and gently need for a couple of minutes. Divide into 1 -2 inch rounds and roll out onto lightly floured surface. Roll until very thin. Place onto ungreased, hot skillet (low heat) and cook each side about 30 seconds.
Let cool completely. Store in zip lock bags in the refrigerator for about 7-10 days.
Another alternative for this is to place in muffin tins and form a cup-like shell. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 min.
Roll them up for cheesy tomato basil wraps later by placing a slice of low fat cheese in the center, softening the wraps in the microwave 10 seconds and rolling them.
