Ingredients of Cauliflower Tortillas Recipe:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut and removed stems ; 2
  •  large eggs ;
  • 1⁄2 tsp. Oregano dried ;
  • 1⁄2 tsp. Paprika ;
  •  salt from the sea and black pepper from fresh soil ;

Preparation

The oven is preheated to 375 F. Pulse the cauliflower with a blender or food processor until you get a finer texture than rice. Steam the riced cauliflower for 5 minutes over boiling water.

Place the steamed cauliflower in a towel of the dish and squeeze out as much water as possible.

For a couple of minutes you might want to let it cool first, so you don’t burn yourself. You should be able to get a lot of water out; be really aggressive about squeezing it out, or later you will end up with soggy tortillas. Transfer to a bowl the cauliflower.

Add oregano, paprika, eggs and season to taste (you can use whatever spices you like). Separate the mixture into 6 balls of equal size and spread each ball out to make six small circles on a parchment – lined baking sheet.

Place in the oven and bake for eight to ten minutes, flip over and cook for another five minutes.

Reheat in a pan when ready to serve at low heat. Makes approximately six tortillas.
