What is cassava flour?

Cassava flour is made from the entire cassava root. To make cassava flour the whole root is peeled, dried and ground.

Just like you can make chickpea flour from chickpeas and ground this recipe is the same.

In cassava, you have a starch. The extracted starch from cassava is call tapioca.

Tapioca is a starch extracted from the cassava root through a process of washing and pulping. The wet pulp is then squeezed to extract a starchy liquid. Once all the water evaporates from the starchy liquid, the tapioca flour remains.

Is Cassava the same as tapioca?

As mentioned above tapioca is made from cassava but it is not the same. Tapioca is made from cassava starch and is regularly used as a thickener in puddings or sauces.

Both cassava and tapioca are gluten-free so if you are gluten intolerant you can eat these without any problem.

What is great about these tortillas is that they do not have a particular taste or flavor.

Which makes them great to use in your favorite Mexican recipe.

Another advantage is these tortillas do not need to rise, proof or rest. The dough is ready when you are.

How to make cassava flour tortillas

Take a large bowl and add the cassava flour, salt, and garlic powder. Take a whisk to stir the ingredients to combine.

Then add the oil and warm water to the flour. Stir to combine before you knead the ingredients into a dough.

Make a long log from the dough and divide it into 8 equal portions. Take a piece of parchment paper so you can roll it with a rolling pin or use a tortilla press.

Roll each portion into a ball and place between two pieces of parchment paper.

Turn the dough into a tortilla using:

  • Rolling pin – using a rolling pin, roll the dough until it is ⅛-inch thick and has a diameter of 4 ½-5 inches.
  • Tortilla press – place balls of dough into a tortilla press and press down. Repeat with remaining balls of dough one tortilla at the time. Bake first before you make the next tortilla.

Heat a dry skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.

Before adding the tortilla to the skillet, peel away the first piece of parchment paper and put the tortilla in the skillet before you gently remove the second piece of baking paper.

Cook each tortilla for 1-2 minutes per side, or until it begins to bubble and has brown patches.
