We love to find creative ways to sneak extra servings of veggies into our meals - these bright green, homemade spinach tortillas are the perfect way to up your nutrient intake while you eat some tasty tacos and burritos!

We're sure by now you've heard about putting spinach in a wrap - but what about baking spinach inside of the tortilla itself? 

We love making these homemade spinach tortillas to help get the 5-13 veggie servings the USDA recommends. Although we love eating veggies, it can feel a little overwhelming to eat enough of them throughout the day. 

These easy wraps are colorful, delicious, and only need five simple ingredients. Although we make ours with all-purpose or spelt flour, you can also quickly adapt the recipe to become gluten-free for those suffering from celiacs disease or gluten sensitivities. 

Before making spinach tortilla, you can check our general guide to making homemade tortillas.

Get out your tortilla press, and let's make some healthy homemade spinach tortillas!

How To Make Spinach Tortillas

This recipe requires just five easy ingredients and a high-powered blender to break down the spinach for the wraps. 

We use a tortilla maker to press our tortillas because they cut down on prep time and give totally flat, even tortilla shapes, which helps them cook perfectly. You should consider investing in a press if you want to make these wraps often. 

If you don't own a press, place your dough balls between two pieces of parchment paper and use a cutting board to press down and flatten, or roll out with a rolling pin.

Spinach Tortilla Wrap Recipe - FAQ

Storage and Reheating

You can easily store these homemade spinach tortillas in an airtight container or sealed Ziploc in the fridge for up to 3 days. 

You can also keep these in a sealed container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Place a fresh piece of parchment paper between each tortilla, so you can pull one out quickly to make an easy spinach tortilla whenever you'd like.

To reheat your tortillas, place them individually in a sandwich maker for 1-2 mins, or heat a skillet over low heat and warm the tortilla for 1-2 mins.  

Can I make spinach tortillas gluten-free?

You sure can!

These spinach tortillas are simple to adapt as a gluten-free recipe - use a gluten-free flour blend, and swap out 1:1 with the flour in our formula. 

We recommend the blend over one type of gluten-free flour, as you get a combination of textures in the mix that won't throw off your results. You don't want to mess with tortilla bases much, as they can become a crumbly mess pretty quickly, and then the whole batch is ruined. 

What do I do if my tortilla dough is too dry or sticky?

The amount of water you'll need to add to this recipe will vary depending on how much water you drain out of the spinach after it's wilted. 

Start with ¼ c. of water, and add 1 Tbsp more as needed if the dough is too dry. If it's a little sticky, add 1 Tbsp of flour at a time until it reaches the right consistency. 

Can I use frozen spinach instead of fresh?

You can easily use frozen spinach instead of wilting the fresh stuff. It's a real time saver and more comfortable to keep on hand as it lasts for months in the freezer. 

If you're using frozen spinach, let it thaw and skip the wilting process - drain it and move right on to the blending step. 

Is a spinach wrap healthy?

Spinach tortillas are incredibly healthy for your body. They're much more nutritious than a wheat wrap on its own, as they have all the added nutrition of fresh spinach, too. Dark and fresh, leafy greens like spinach or kale are some of the most nutritious veggies available to us, and we should eat them as much as possible!

These wraps are a great source of vitamin K, manganese, folate, vitamin A, and vitamin C.

Final Notes: Easy Spinach Veggie Wrap Recipes

These homemade spinach tortillas make the best wraps for taco night and will please even the most veggie-phobic kids in your life! 

They're also excellent for chicken caesar wraps or vegetarian options like black bean, rice, and avocado. The wraps pass the ultimate test of a good tortilla - they won't crumble in your hands as you eat. 

We hope you love these healthy, green wraps just as much as we do!
