Tortillas (made from cauliflower)

You can make these at home and freeze them or just buy them online.  You won’t miss bread if you have these!  


  • 3/4 head cauliflower
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • juice from 1/2 lime (add the zest too if you want more of a lime flavor)
  • salt and pepper, to taste

optional :  1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese, goat cheese, or any cheese of your choice


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
  3. Place the cauliflower in a pan with 1/4 boiling water and let it steam for a few minute until soft.  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.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Add in cauliflower, cilantro, lime, salt and pepper (and cheese- optional). Mix until well combined. Use your hands to shape 6 small “tortillas” on the parchment paper.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.


  • Make a sandwich with a little turkey, avocado, mayo, etc. or make quesadillas with them, or add some ground beef and toppings and fold it like a taco.
