How do you make cauliflower tortillas?
- cauliflower– Finely chop the cauliflower so that it is easier to process and chop. Don’t use frozen cauliflower or cauliflower rice as this will result in mushy tortillas.
- salt– Removes additional moisture from the cauliflower.
- Eggs– The binding agent that holds the tortillas together and does not break apart.

Start by placing your chopped cauliflower in a food processor and pulsing it until it crumbles into a fine texture. Transfer it to a bowl, add salt, and microwave it for 5 minutes until it is soft. Drain the cauliflower, then use a cheesecloth or kitchen towel to squeeze out excess moisture.
Now put the cauliflower in a bowl and add the eggs and spices and mix until everything is mixed. Shape 6 balls with your hands and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Press down on each ball to form a tortilla shape. Bake the cauliflower tortillas for 20 minutes, turning halfway.
Finally, take the tortillas out of the oven and heat a coated pan with a little oil. Once hot, add the tortillas and cook for 1-2 minutes before using them as wraps, tacos, etc.
