Ketogenic Gyros

Making Cauliflower Tortillas in bulk is a helpful strategy to simplify food prep. They freeze well and can be stored for a while. Pull them out ahead of time to give enough time for them to thaw. Be sure to place a piece of parchment paper between each tortilla so they don’t stick together and will defrost better.

In place of the tortillas, cauliflower rice can also be used. I teach two ways to make Cauliflower Rice and offer many variations on how to use it in my cookbook, The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook.
