Similar to cauliflower rice, these low-carb and gluten-free cauliflower tortillas are a nutrient-dense addition to any meal. Cauliflower contains sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that is shown to kill cancer stem cells and slow tumor growth. Anti-inflammatory nutrients are also found in cauliflower as well as choline, which fuels the brain.

Tips for making Cauliflower Tortillas

Using a cheesecloth to remove any liquid from the cauliflower is an important part of the recipe process. Essentially this step is how you make a flour-like material to bind the rest of the ingredients together. If the cauliflower is too wet, the tortillas are not likely to hold together well.

In place of a cheesecloth, you may use a nut milk bag or kitchen towel. I suggest purchasing either a cheesecloth or nut milk bag because they are so handy to have in the kitchen. You can use them for homemade cheese, yogurt, nut milks, juices, as well as for recipes that call for cauliflower or broccoli as substitutes for flour.

Removing as much water as possible is the best tip I can give, otherwise the recipe is fairly straight forward! Steam the cauliflower, shred the cheese, crack in the eggs and mix the dough all together and bake until golden brown.

Can Cauliflower Tortillas be Dairy-Free?

It is possible to make a dairy-free version of these cauliflower tortillas. Removing the cheese and adding a bit of gluten-free, ketogenic friendly flour will make these a viable option for people who prefer dairy-free foods. Substitute the cheese with almond or coconut flour. You do not need much. Start with 2 tablespoons of flour and increase as needed until the dough holds together.

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 °F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Steam the cauliflower in a steamer basket or in the microwave.
    4 cups cauliflower
  • Drain the liquid and rinse the cooked cauliflower under cold water, quickly to cool it down. Squeeze in a cheesechoth and remove as much of the liquid as you can. Be careful if the material is still hot.
    2 whole eggs, ½ medium lime, 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, ½ teaspoon cumin powder
  • Combine with eggs, cilantro, lime, cumin, salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Divide into 6 small portions and arrange on the baking sheet. Press flat into tortilla shaped rounds. Thin, but not necessarily as thin as possible.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, until the edges are dry and the bottom is golden. Flip over and return to the oven for another 7 minutes.
  • Finish by cooking in a skillet over the stove. Use dry heat, no oil. Cook each side for 1-2 minutes. They should turn golden brown on each side.

Notes

To rice cauliflower: Chop the head into small florets, add to the bowl of a food processor and pulse with the “s” blade into small rice-like pieces. Continue pulsing until you get small pieces. If needed, stop and scrape the sides half-way through.
I use 4-level measuring cups, but do not pack it.
These are approximately the size of a corn tortilla.
Tortillas are ready to flip when you can easily scoop them up with a spatula.
