  • 1 cup gluten-free multi-purpose flour (for non-gluten-free use 1 cup AP wheat flour)

Mix sweet potato purée with flour and salt until smooth.

The mixture will thicken and lighten in color. It should stick to the spatula.

22Tortas-Leigh

Spoon the dough into similar sized dollops onto parchment. Evenly smooth each into about a 4 inch circle with a silicone spatula (as if icing a cake). Don’t worry about making them look perfectly round… the artisanal look is in!

23Tortas-Leigh

Bake approximately 20 minutes, depending on your oven’s temperament!

Using parchment paper keeps the underside of the tortas from browning or sticking too much. It also speeds up the cleaning afterward, which is especially great when you have guests.
