Try this easy, delicious, and nutritious take on flatbread.
My kids told me about some sweet potato tortillas that went viral online, so I gave making them a try. I microwaved sweet potatoes until soft, peeled and mashed them, added enough flour to make a soft dough, and then flattened the dough into discs. Then, I griddled the discs on both sides until charred in a hot cast-iron pan. They came out more like flatbread, and they were delicious.
Besides being easy, this recipe is a great way to add the fiber, beta-carotene, and the other nutritional benefits of sweet potatoes to your diet. To make them more like sweet potato roti, a soft Indian flatbread, I seasoned mine with whole cumin seeds. You can omit the cumin for a plainer flatbread, if desired.
