Cauliflower Tortillas! March 19 2014, 1 Comment


I have to pat myself on the back for how great these cauliflower tortillas turned out. But, I have to admit that it took a few tries to get this recipe just right. I almost gave up but I was determined...I was tired of eating my fajitas without a tortilla, so wI knew this was the solution!! Replace your flour, wheat and corn tortillas with these cauliflower tortillas and you'll dramatically cut your carbs and calories! Plus, remember this is a vegetable so this recipe is very filling unlike your typical tortillas. This isn't a quick and easy recipe, but it's fun to make and the results are incredible! Whole recipe makes 6 tortillas Nutrition facts per tortilla: 60 calories, 2 grams of fat, 7.25 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of protein, and 3.6 grams of fiber Ingredients:
  • 2 heads cauliflower (this needs to make 2 cups packed once cauliflower is riced!)
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Wash and cut up cauliflower
  3. Add cauliflower to a food processor and blend until rice like consistency, when you are finished you need to have two cups packed of cauliflower to have enough for the tortillas! 
  4. Then place cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes
  5. Take cauliflower out of the microwave, stir and microwave again for another 2 minutes
  6. Once cauliflower is finished in the microwave, use a paper towel to remove as MUCH extra water as you can!!
  7. Add cauliflower rice, 2 eggs, salt and pepper to mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
  8. Using your hands, shape cauliflower into tortillas (about 5 inches round) and place on to parchment paper covered baking sheet. You can make about 6 small circles
