This simple buckwheat flour tortilla recipe needs only a few basic ingredients and is super easy to make. It works best if you have a tortilla press, but if you don’t have one you can use a rolling pin and roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper, no flour needed. This recipe uses hot water to get more binding capacity.

Buckwheat is an amazing gluten free grain, it has amazing nutritional value and is only available as whole grain, the flavor could be a bit overwhelming if you’re not used to it. Rice flour has a more neutral flavor, but buckwheat beats rice in terms of protein content, rice has a rather low protein content.

Buckwheat is completely gluten free, apart from the name, it does not have anything in common with wheat. Buckwheat is not in any way related to wheat! Traditionally it is used in Russian or Eastern European cuisine, but has been pushed aside by modern wheat.
