Cauliflower Tortillas
Health Highlights


3/4 medium head Cauliflower
2 large egg Egg
1/4 cup Cilantro (coriander)
1/2 whole lime(s) Lime juice (fresh) (add zest too for more lime flavour)
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black pepper


Preheat the oven to 375°F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Trim the cauliflower, cut it into small, uniform pieces, and pulse in a food processor in batches until you get a couscous-like consistency. The finely riced cauliflower should make about 2 cups packed.

Place the cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, then stir and microwave again for another 2 minutes. Place the cauliflower in a fine cheesecloth or thin dishtowel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible, being careful not to burn yourself. Dishwashing gloves are suggested as it is very hot.

In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Add in cauliflower, cilantro, lime, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Use your hands to shape 6 small "tortillas" on the parchment paper.

Bake for 10 minutes, carefully flip each tortilla, and return to the oven for an additional 5 to 7 minutes, or until completely set. Place tortillas on a wire rack to cool slightly.

Heat a medium-sized skillet on medium. Place a baked tortilla in the pan, pressing down slightly, and brown for 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Repeat with remaining tortillas.


Tip: You can munch these by themselves, make quesadillas with them, or add some taco filling and fold it like a taco.
