I promised to include a recipe today for homemade lavash. “Real” lavash is an Armenian flatbread – a crackerlike bread. This version is made from store bought flour tortillas! Word to the wise – the higher the fat grams per tortilla, the crisper the end product. Today I used Ole Xtreme Wellness, high fiber tortilla wraps. They are virtually fat free – just 1.5 grams per tortilla – so the end result isn’t as crisp. I still love this version for a low carb dipping option. When you have savory appetizers like baba ganoush or hummus, the cracker is just a vehicle for scooping!

This recipe is from L’Dor V’Dor (2003), the Adath Jeshurun Women’s League Cookbook. (Translation: From Generation to Generation). I am a proud third generation member of the Adath Jeshurun Congregation in Minnetonka, Minnesota.


1 package large-size flour tortillas

Seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, salt, sesame seeds, poppy seeds

(Use Trader Joe’s bagel seasoning for one-stop sprinkling!)

Wet one side of tortilla under a kitchen faucet. Lay on a cookie sheet (should be able to fit two per sheet). Sprinkle with seasonings as desired. Bake about 10 minutes in a 400-degree oven until light brown and puffed up. Watch them carefully so the tortillas do not burn. Break into pieces when cool.

If you’re interested? I have an extra copy of this book. I will mail it to the first person to email me a name and address!
