Vegan I Gluten Free
Serves: 8 - 10 tortillas
Time: 20 minutes + overnight soaking
3 cups buckwheat, soaked overnight
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup olive oil
1 lemon juiced
1 bunch thai basil, ~2cups
2 cloves garlic
Salt & peppe to taste
To prepare the tortillas - Rinse your buckwheat. Add your buckwheat to a bowl and cover with 2 -3 inches of water. Let rest overnight, 8 - 10 hours.
Once the buckwheat has soaked, strain and rinse.
Add your soaked buckwheat, 1 1/2 cups water & salt to a food processor or blender. Mix on medium-high speed until smooth and thick.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot add ~1/3 cup of the tortilla mixture to the pan. Use the back of a wooden spoon to spread the mixture in a circle or gently rotate the pan in a circular motion.
Let the mixture cook 1 - 3 minutes, until bubbling and the bottom side golden brown. Gently flip the tortilla and cook an additional 1 minute.
Work in batches until all the tortilla mixture has been used.
Note: you can store the blended buckwheat tortilla ingredients in the fridge 1 - 3 days and use as needed. The mixture will begin to thicken with time but keeps well!
To prepare the avocado pesto - add all ingredients into a food processor or blender and mix on medium-high until smooth and creamy.
To assemble your tortillas - spread a layer of avocado pesto onto each tortilla round. Top with additional fresh veggies, herbs, etc.
Store leftovers in the fridge 1 - 2 days.
