Spring has finally arrived in Istanbul. And that’s definitely a reason to eat more colourful food. Like very pink beetroot chickpea flour tortillas filled with bright green spinach, cucumber and avocado. Sounds good?
These chickpea flour tortillas (some call it wraps, tacos or even socca) are the easiest recipe ever if you want to make gluten-free and vegan tortillas at home. I’m usually one of the lazy kind, so if I had the chance I would probably buy tortillas at the organic shop. But since living abroad (first Hong Kong, then Cairo and now Istanbul) it’s been super difficult to find healthy and clean foods at the local supermarket. Most of the baked goods in Turkey are made of processed wheat with lots of sugar and I try to avoid that. So I started a little testing phase in my kitchen and tried various chickpea flour recipes. My favorite and by far the easiest one turned out to be this beautifully pink version. And honestly, I think I’ll never go back to store-bought tortillas….
