Spelt or Kamut Tortillas

Whole-wheat kamut and spelt create tortillas with a nuanced, nutty flavor and a sturdy (in a good way) texture, as well as sound nutritional benefits.

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 2008


  • 1 cup spelt or kamut flour, plus more for surface
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
  • 1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk


  1. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add sour cream and buttermilk, and mix with your hands until a dough forms. Turn onto a lightly floured surface, and knead for 5 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rest for 30 minutes.

  2. Cut dough into 4 equal pieces. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll each piece into 8-inch rounds, less than 1/8 inch thick. Place tortillas on a parchment-lined baking sheet, layering parchment between each to prevent sticking. Cover with parchment, then with a damp kitchen towel. Let rest for 30 minutes (or cover and refrigerate overnight).

  3. Place a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Cook tortilla until brown spots appear, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a plate, and cover with parchment and then a damp towel. Repeat. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note

You can swap spelt flour for white or whole-wheat flour in almost any recipe. Expect a slightly more robust flavor than regular whole wheat provides.
