Servings 8 tortillas


  • Food processor


  • 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 beets peeled and chopped in four
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4-1/2 cup water
  • Extra flour for dusting


  • Add beets to a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add flour, salt, baking powder and process until all ingredients are incorporated. Slowly pour in olive oil, followed by water, a little at a time, until it forms a ball. The amount of water you need depends on your environment. If the dough gets very sticky and doesn't turn into a ball, remove it from the processor and add a little extra flour. Avoid overprocessing because it will make the dough too tough.
  • Turn dough onto a generously floured work surface. Let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough into eight equal parts. Roll each piece into a thin six-inch circle. Your shapes may not be perfect, but that’s okay. You can trim edges to get a more even circle and use the trimmings to make a smaller tortilla at the very end.
  • In a non-stick skillet or cast-iron griddle, cook tortillas over medium heat until lightly browned, about 1 minute on each side.
