Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas | 2 Ingredients, Oil-Free

Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas


Do you like sweet potato? I personally love it, and I have a lot of fun incorporating it in different recipes.

Making your own tortillas is very easy and I highly recommend you to try it if you are used to buying industrial tortillas. This recipe has become one of our favourites and I keep re-making it ๐Ÿ™‚

Now, making your own tortillas does take more time than buying them, but honestly it is SO worth it in terms of taste and health. These tortillas taste just as goodย โ€“ if not better!ย โ€“ as the store-bought ones and are amazingly soft.

Yes, you read that right. You will only need 2 ingredients to make these delicious and healthy tortillas. No oil or weird ingredients involved โ€“ just sweet potato and flour.

The first time I made these tortillas, I was very surprised by how soft and flexible they were considering that they don’t contain any oil. To make sure they stay flexible for a couple of days, make sure to stack the cooked tortillas on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel while you cook the rest.

You can use these tortillas to make wraps, quesadillas, burritos, enchiladas or tacos. We love to make tacos and fill them with fresh vegetables and homemade falafels ๐Ÿ™‚

Course: Lunch / Dinner, Tortillas
Keyword: Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas
Servings: 5 medium-sized tortillas
Author: Blooming Nolwenn
  • 150 g sweet potato, mashed
  • 130 g all-purpose flour
  1. To a mixing bowl, add the mashed sweet potato and the flour and stir until well-combined. Use your hands to form a dough ball. It should not be too sticky.

  2. Separate the dough ball into 5 equal parts. Dust your working surface with flour and roll out each tortilla with a rolling pin (they should be roughly 1/2 cm thick). Don't make them too thin, otherwise they won't be as soft and flexible.

  3. Place the tortillas in a hot pan over medium-high heat and cook for 1 minute on both sides. Stack the cooked tortillas on a plate covered with a clean kitchen towel while you cook the rest. This will allow them to stay very flexible.

    Do you need to cook the sweet potato first please?

      Hi Pauline!
      Yes, you do need to cook the sweet potato first and then mash it. I like to bake it whole at 200ยฐC for 40 minutes or until fork-tender.
      Let me know how it went ๐Ÿ™‚

          Hi Denise!
          I haven’t tried this recipe with gluten-free flour yet, so I’m not sure how the tortillas would turn out. Would I try it, I would use a combination of chickpea flour and tapioca starch to keep the tortillas soft. I hope this helps!
          If you do try it, let me know and I can mention it in the recipe notes to help other readers ๐Ÿ™‚

    Any recipe you can refer me to substitute the all purpose flour (wheat AND rice allergy)? Thanks!

      Yes, I highly recommend you to check out Ela’s recipe for Gluten-Free Tortillas ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi, do I have to mix the flour and the sweet potato when it’s hot or can I wait when it’s colder?
    Thank you

      Hi Violette,
      Both ways will work great, I have tried them both ๐Ÿ™‚
      Let me know how it went!

    Have you tried this with almond flour?

    • August 14, 2018 / 9:42 am

      Hi Heather,
      No, I haven’t tried these with almond flour so I can’t tell you how it would go ๐Ÿ˜Š
      Let me know if you do ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
