Soft Sourdough Discard Tortillas

Transform your sourdough discard into flour tortillas with this easy, and foul-proof sourdough discard tortilla recipe.

I enjoy prepping these tortillas in the morning, about an hour before lunch. Simply just mix the ingredients together and let the dough relax. Then, right before lunch, I like to shape, flatten and cook the tortillas on the stovetop. This allows me to have fresh tortillas for lunch, which is fantastic. These tortilla comes out soft and tender, making it great for wrapping, rolling and dipping.
