Ingredients

  • 1/2 head cauliflower roughly chopped
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon green onions chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Put the cauliflower in a food processor and pulse until you have a fine grain, but not liquified (it should look similar to couscous or rice.) Measure out approximately 2 cups and transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Cook for about 1 minute, remove and stir. Cook for 2 minutes. Let the cauliflower cool slightly.
  • When cool, line a fine-mesh strainer with cheesecloth and put the strainer over a bowl. Using a spoon or spatula, press as much of the water as you can out of the cauliflower.
  • Transfer to a large bowl and mix in the eggs, green onions, and salt. Mix well until you have a batter.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the batter into 6 circles, spreading as thin as possible.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, flip and bake for 8 more. Before serving, you can heat gently in a nonstick skillet to warm and soften if necessary.

    1. Patrick, Unfortunately, frozen cauliflower will not work well for this recipe. Even thawed it will be too wet, and the cauliflower needs to be very dry in order for the tortillas to stick together.

    2. I just used frozen – follow all directions but after pressing out the water spread over a cookie sheet. Place in 200 degree oven with heat turned off. Check every 10 minutes until moisture has evaporated.

    1. LesP, Yes, you can cook the cauliflower on the stovetop with a little water (about 1/4 cup added) and cook for 5 to minutes over medium heat, covered, until just slightly tender. Drain the water and remove as much of the liquid as possible from the cauliflower.

  1. Wondering if I can leave out the salt……… I'm strictly "NO added salt" due to high blood pressure and stroke history. Is the salt a chemical thing or a flavor thing? If its just for flavor, can I substitute something like Mrs. Dash or Just-a-Pinch ?

    1. Yes. Just be sure to wrap them in an airtight container. They can be reheated in a non-stick skillet.

  2. I’m wondering if you could use a sauté pan, with plenty of non stick spray, to cook them instead of the oven, I did try this recipe and they stuck to the parchment paper.
