And a nicer one:125g wholemeal flour
120g plain flour
6g of salt (a good pinch )
30ml olive oil
180ml hot water.
Mix the flours and salt together well, add the olive oil and mix. Then add the water until it forms a smooth dough. split and roll into 10 balls and leave to sit for 10 mins.
flour a flat surface and roll out a ball into a flat circle with a rolling pin, nice and thin.
heat a frying pan or griddle with a small bit of grease (I use a little margarine or butter) until its smoking.
Once the pan is hot pop the bread in, about 30 secs each side, or until you see darker spots appear (cooked not burnt spots )
quick and easy UL bread takes about 30 mins to make.
Chewy Flour Tortillas
These tortillas have real body and taste; they are perfect for gorditas, fajitas and eating out of hand.
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
• 3/4 cup lukewarm milk (2% is fine)
Stir together the flour and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Add the salt and vegetable oil to the lukewarm milk and whisk briefly to incorporate. Gradually add the milk to the flour, and work the mixture into a dough. It will be sticky.
Turn the dough out onto a surface dusted with flour and knead vigorously for about 2 minutes (fold and press, fold and press). The kneading will take care of the stickiness. Return the dough to the bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rest for 15 minutes. (This dough will not rise, but it needs a rest.)
Divide your dough into 8 balls of equal size, cover them, and let them rest again for about 20 minutes. Avoid letting them touch, if you don't want them to stick together.
Dust your work surface with flour. Working one at a time, remove each piece of dough and pat it into a 5-inch circle. With a rolling pin, roll out the tortilla, working from the center out, until you have a 7- or 8-inch tortilla a little less than 1/4 inch thick. Transfer the tortilla to a hot, dry skillet or griddle. It will begin to blister. Let it cook for 30 seconds, turn it, and let the other side cook for 30 seconds. Remove the tortilla, place it in a napkin-lined basket and cover with aluminum foil. Repeat for the remaining tortillas.
Although flour tortillas, like corn tortillas, are best if eaten right after they are made, these tortillas will freeze well. Wrap them tightly in plastic, and they will keep, frozen, for several weeks. To serve tortillas that have been frozen, let them thaw and come to room temperature, then wrap them in aluminum foil and heat them in a warm oven. Microwaving tends to toughen them
Spice it up tips...
• A tablespoon of chopped fresh herbs (like oregano or rosemary)
• A teaspoon or so of dried herbs
• Freshly ground black pepper
• A tablespoon of minced jalapeños
• A little garlic powder (or substitute garlic salt for the salt)
Emily, thanks for the prayers. My prayers are with you too and I pray whatever it is will bring you closer to Yah, as that is always my prayer for myself. It has been hard on my wife & kids to see me in a vulnerable state like that. Apparently, if the thyroid is not working right, it can screw up a whole bunch of different body systems and after leaving it unchecked for so long, I basically blew a fuse (hypothalamus went dormant, only allowing me to produce enough energy to do the most basic things - basically chronic fatigue syndrome) and I wasn't absorbing nutrients, so I got dangerously low on b12, vit D, and basically low on most every nutrient and most every hormone. Anyways, after 12 drs, I finally found 2 that are helping a lot and I have slowly gotten better the last few months. Still have a ways to go... I no longer feel like I'm going to die from it like I did before... and I can even exercise now.4 kids wow....and I find 2 keeps me flat out!
By the way YahTselem i read your introductory post the other day and found it very encouraging ...what you said about your health and Yah healing you in his own perfect timing. I have been having a health nightmare over the last few months (out of the blue like yours) and being a mum its been really hard. I have prayed for you and trying to be more positive now myself.......all in good time.
Emily (using my husbands account will get round to setting mine up soon!)
