It's Monday and January 2nd so that can only mean one thing.........The diet starts now! Maybe not, if you've been faithfully enjoying a low carb and sugar free life style for some time now.
Even if you've been really balanced through the holidays, (I for one overindulged and need to watch my portions more than ever), these tortillas are great for a healthy lunch or dinner recipe and much better for you than corn tortillas that have high carbs and would not be recommended if you're on a keto diet.
I don't know about you, but I hardly make New Year's Resolutions. I'd rather focus on a few things that are doable with small goals I can actually and realistically do during the hectic week with my family.
I'm a busy mom of 3 kids and I homeschool and I run this blog and it's not easy working from home with constant interruptions. BUT I am grateful for being able to BE at home, do something I love as a career and teach my kids.
Honestly though, my time is truly limited and I've had to find ways to get in exercise and work before school begins. I've had to become a morning person and get up at 5:15am every day! It's tough but it really is the only way for me to make time for myself.
My focus this year in my life is to get strong and fit through increasing my cardio, but adding twice a week of strength and weight training. I tend to get back spasms and all the cardio in the world won't help my back if my core isn't strong so that's my focus this year.
I continue to eat a low-carb diet and my net carbs range from 40-50 a day. Sometimes it's lower than that. These low carb tortillas can fit nicely for most dietary needs.
Over our school vacation I had a cauliflower in the fridge I wanted to use up. I've got a ton of hidden cauliflower recipes and knew I wanted to do something a bit different with this one. I looked over my cauliflower tots which my family loves and adapted from there.
To be completely honest with you I was hoping to make a new keto low carb chip, but the recipe didn't work as I thought and now we've got these awesome tortillas instead, still a win in my book!
My oldest teen loved them and didn't even realize cauliflower was in there! You're family will hardly believe these tortillas contain cauliflower, if they passed my picky teen son test!
Low-Carb Tortilla Recipe
Exact measurements for the main ingredients are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post. Nutritional information is also provided.
Fresh Cauliflower- a head of cauliflower or purchase cauliflower florets. If you buy cauliflower rice that is frozen be sure to thaw and drain excess moisture by squeezing in a clean kitchen towel. See Best Tips below for how much cauliflower rice to use.
Cheddar cheese or a blend of Mexican Cheese
Step by Step Instructions are in recipe card below.
How to Store
Once cooked and cooled, lay left over tortillas between parchment paper and store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 7 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
Tools to Make Cauliflower Tortillas
Food Processor- My food processor makes everything quick and easy and this recipe is no exception. Just combine all ingredients into the processor and let it do it's thing.
Baking Sheet pans- You will need two large baking sheet pans for this recipe so that you can spread out the batter and bake 6 cauliflower tortillas on each pan.
Parchment paper- These are pre-cut pieces of parchment paper sheets that fit perfectly onto the sheet pans but you could also just buy a roll and cut to fit your pan. I like easy and quick and these precut work well for me. If I need them for a smaller pan I just cut them in half.
Best Tips for Keto Tortillas
The reason I didn't just use an egg here and chose egg whites instead is that I didn't want them any more yellowy in color.
Yolks often provide the fat content to most recipes and since I am using a lot of cheese which has fat, the yolk isn't needed. The egg whites are enough to bind the ingredients together.
If you prefer you could replace the egg whites with one egg.
PLEASE!!!! Weigh these measurements! A cup of shredded cheese is not the same as weighing it in ounces or grams.
If you notice them to be a bit greasy, simply pat them with a paper towel.
If you buy all ready riced cauliflower, use 2 ½ cups, that's how much mine measured after I grated it in my food processor.
UPDATE: I decided to make these again using 1 egg instead of egg whites to make it easier for everyone. I also felt since they were a bit greasy I weighed my cheese and was now only able to make 12 instead of 16. I also spread them out even flatter, about ⅛ inch thick and they are amazing!
Keto Cauliflower Tortillas
Low Carb Cauliflower Tortillas (Gluten Free)
- 4 cups cauliflower florets ½ large head (12 ounces)
- 1 egg or 2 egg whites
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2.25 cups cheddar cheese shredded or (241g)
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Lay parchment paper on two baking sheets. Set aside.
- Place the florets into a food processor and pulse until the florets are grated and there are no large pieces.
- Add into the food processor the remaining ingredients and pulse until combined.
- Scoop 3 tablespoons of the mixture onto the baking sheet and pat down into an even flat, round circle about ¼ inch or even ⅛ inch thick depending on your preference. Do this with the remaining batter. Should be able to make 12.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
- To get some color on the other side of the tortillas you can place another piece of parchment over the cooked tortillas. Then place another baking pan the same size over the parchment. Holding the sides of the pans together, flip the pan over and remove the layer of parchment. You can then place them back in the oven for another 5 minutes if you prefer.
- Allow to cool then layer between pieces of paper towel to absorb some of the grease from the cheese.
- Fill as you would for a taco.
- Keep remaining pieces in the refrigerator until ready to use again. Just reheat in a dry skillet for a minute or 2 on each side.
Brenda you never disappoint! I just made the cauliflower tortillas and Boom!!! AMAZING
Can they be ftozen
yes, I would cool after cooking then lay between pieces of parchment then freeze.
I have frozen cauliflower, can I use that instead and how much? Should I thaw it first?
Great recipe. Thurned out better than the Trader Joe’s cauliflower thinks. I do agree it works best to weigh the cauliflower and cheese portions.
I tend to buy frozen riced cauliflower (12 oz) because its so convenient... Will this work if I squeeze out the extra liquid?
I think so. I'd say you'd need about 10 ounces of riced cauliflower to equal what I used here.
Hello, Thanks for the recipe. But I do not have easy access to Cauliflower in my area. What can I buy to replace cauliflower?
Do you find that using the yolk makes it taste eggy at all? I hate an eggy taste, and will probably use just the whites, but I was wondering.
I didn't notice an eggy taste with either.
These are incredible! I used pepper jack cheese and i loved them with guacamole
I made these tonight. I didn't have Mexican cheese but I wanted to use Parmesan cheese instead. I followed the recipe but used 1 cup parmesan cheese and 1.25 cups of Pepper Jack cheese. I added 1/4 tsp black pepper.
They turned out super yummy! My husband who doesn't like cauliflower even liked them and he knew they were cauliflower shells!
These would be awesome as a pizza crust, or taco shell, or served with homemade hummus, or eat them plain like I did!
Thanks for sharing your recipe. I love the fact that you don't have to cook the cauliflower first. These are so easy!
Thank you for using "weight" measurements!!! I know a lot of work goes into the recipes that everyone is so kind to share, but 2 people can pick up a "medium " head if cauliflower and it could be quite a different weight!!! Can't wait to try these!!!
Hi long can you eat of the cauliflower shells? 3 days, 4 days???
I had them in my fridge for 5 days.
Was skeptical about these but made them for tacos and they turned out GREAT! I even pulled out the regular flour tortillas thinking my boyfriend would turn his nose up at these, but he loved them and ate only them! Definitely will be making these all the time. My only question- is the cheese necessary? They were delicious with it but I can't see them tasting bad without (just trying to make it even healthier), just wonder if the cheese helps hold them together or anything. TIA and thanks for this delicious recipe!!
Hi Kelsey, that's awesome your boyfriend surprised you! I've not attempted to remove the cheese and I do feel it binds the cauliflower better. Maybe try adding something to replace the cheese, a little almond or coconut flour. Sorry I can be more helpful, I just love cheese!
Hello! Can you please just sale these?
What does "Mexican cheese" mean? There are many varieties of cheese made in Mexico...
Mine was a combination of mild cheddar, Asadero, Queso quesadilla, and Monetery Jack.
If I am using Frozen riced cauliflower, how would I do that? Thaw the cauliflower then get all the moisture out? Thanks!
Under my notes I mentioned just use 2 1/2 cup if it's already riced, then just follow the recipe. I didn't cook it or squeeze the cauliflower, there's no need in this recipe that's the joy of it.
Can these be made without the cheese?
You'd need to replace it with something else and I've not tried subbing the cheese for anything else sorry.
Do you have the recipe for the taco filling you have in the picture with the cauliflower taco shells anywhere on your site? I have tried a few search combinations but have come up short. It would be appreciated!
No actually I don't sorry about that!
Do you have any tortilla recipes or other products that can be made for a person with chronic kidney disease. Low potassium,low sodium,low phosphorous.can something be sustituted for cheese in your low carb cauliflower tortillas.They sound soo good.
Sorry I've not tried any sub for the cheese in these tortillas. I've been testing and testing but sadly have not perfected a dairy free tortilla, yet!! I'm going to keep trying though!
Love these. Not an obvious cauliflower flavor. A little fragile but held together well enough. I might try some different cheese combos in the future, maybe a bit of Parmesan. Thanks for the recipe.
i didn't notice if anyone had asked or not, but can these be stored for later or do they need to be eaten immediately?
Definitely can be stored in the fridge, covered well with plastic wrap to keep them from drying out.
