In lieu of a more in-depth update from this self isolation here are things I’ve learned about making faux tortillas and flat breads:
- The thinner the better
- Hot pan is good. Dry pan even better
- If needs be, oil the uncooked tortilla instead of the pan
- Many many many recipes call for baking soda — I have no clue why. Almost none of those same recipes call for any acid. Without an acid to activate and/or neutralize the baking soda the tinny, acrid taste hangs around. No bueno. To counter act this I’ve tried adding a wee bit of lemon juice, but best I’ve found is to completely forego the ingredient altogether
- I’ve been kneading mine by hand for 4 minutes, dividing into golf ball sized parcels, allowing to rest for a few minutes, and then rolling flat with a big old (like 100+ years old) rolling pin
The rolling pin I use is supposedly one of the only things my great grandmother’s family brought with them from Europe when they fled to America.
Lichen. The right yellow.

Generally speaking I’m pretty anti-social and work from home, so the bulk of my normal IRL social contact comes from pre-k drop-off and pickup, the occasional errand, and trips to the gym. I guess I’m going truly digital native and all in on the family-man thing.
Now that school are closed for at least 2 weeks, this weekend was a dry-run for the days to come:
Beside sneaking some work in whenever possible, I started a new project, ran around in the woods (far from other people) and caught a bunch of Pokemon in Pokemon Go with the kiddo, watched Frozen 2 (3 times!?), read many children’s books, listened to, or overheard many children’s podcasts, cleaned and cooked…a lot.
Covid-cooking so far:
- Vegan waffles
- Flat bread and red curry
- Vegan chocolate chip cookies
- Miso soup
- Dozens of bowls of oatmeal (we really like oatmeal)
- 1 other meal that I’ve completely forgotten
Wash your hands and take care of each other!
