If you live in the world of sourdough baking, these Sourdough Tortillas are a great way to use up the starter discard. These tortillas are really easy to make with just a few basic ingredients, and you don’t need any special equipment, so what are you waiting for?
What if I don’t have a sourdough starter?
If you haven’t jumped aboard sourdough making, then you can just check out a different recipe for something else on our blog, because these are specifically for using up sourdough discard. If you want to start making your own sourdough at home, I highly recommend checking out these sourdough starter guides (here, here, or here) to learn more and get started! Or this post on the Secret to Perfect Sourdough.
Do the Sourdough Discard Tortillas taste like sourdough?
Nope. I would bet you wouldn’t even notice that the sourdough discard was even in this recipe! They taste like a great homemade flour tortilla.
Do I need a tortilla press or other equipment?
Nope. We used a good old rolling pin to make these tortillas flat, and cooked them in a dry cast iron skillet. Also, we mix the dough using a food processor, but this can easily be done by hand, or in a stand mixer with a dough hook.
I made the Sourdough Tortillas, now what?
