  • 160 gr. bread crumb round machine (the previous day)
  • 125 ml. soy milk
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fried tomato
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • extra virgin olive oil (Smooth flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons chickpea flour
  • 250 ml. water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon wholemeal flour


  1. Open the bread in half and take as much crumb as possible to reach the necessary amount, put it in a bowl and reserve.
  2. Put the 50 ml. water in another bowl, pour 1 teaspoon salt and add the chickpea flour and a tablespoon of vinegar to remove the flavor of chickpea flour. Beat with a fork until the ingredients are well integrated and the consistency is somewhat thick. We add the soy milk and beat again.
  3. Once beaten, add bread crumbs and corn starch and mix well to form a dense dough.
  4. We put to heat a pan with enough oil over medium heat and, when the oil is warm, we take portions of dough with a spoon and we go oval shape and we fry them in batches, leaving them to brown on both sides. As they are ready, we are going to place them on absorbent paper or in a colander so that they release the excess oil, and then we pass them to a pot that is a little deep.
  5. Grate the garlic and onion, remove the oil that we used to fry the tortillas leaving about 3 tablespoons, and put it to heat over the fire again. When the oil is hot again, we toss the onion and the garlic and fry them until it is all poached. When the onion is transparent, add the tablespoon of flour and stir it so that it is refried a little.
  6. Add the fried tomato, 200 ml. water, 1 teaspoon salt and stir again, put it in the pan where we have the tortillas and let it boil for 15 minutes over low heat. After this time, we put out the fire and serve.
