Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 35 minutes
TOTAL = 45 min
16 tbls chickpea flour
1 tbls of oat (gluten free) flour
250ml aguafaba or water
1-2 tsp kala namak* salt (according to your taste)
800 grams (about 4 medium) potatoes
2 egg replacements (I used Orgran No Egg - Egg Replacer)
1 yellow onion
salt to taste
squash or other vegetables
LET's DO THIS:
Peel and wash the potatoes, then cut them into small pieces. Prepare the onion chopping it into small pieces. And heat up some olive oil in a non-stick frying pan the pan, once the oil is hot add the potatoes, onion and 1/2 tsp of Kala namak (+ if using add the chopped squash. The oil should almost cover the potatoes.
Cook for about 20 minutes - stirring occasionally until potatoes are nice and soft. Meanwhile prepare the 'egg' mixture in bowl. Mix together the aguafaba (or water) with the chickpea four, rest of the kala namak salt (+ if using add the nutritional yeast) and whisk together properly.
Remove the potatoes and onion from the pan with a slotted spoon and add them into the prepared mix. Place one or two tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan and heat on medium heat. Pour in the potato onion mixture into the pan and cook on low heat for about 10 minutes. Place a plate over the tortilla and turn it around to cook the other side for another 10 minutes. Turn the tortilla again if required until it’s totally cooked.
