Cauliflower Tortillas (Paleo, Grain Free, Gluten free)

IMG_0190

Cauliflower is so incredibly versatile in the kitchen. Every time I play with it in the kitchen I almost always end up stunning myself with another use for it. And yes I refer to it as playing because I do fairly odd things with it until something interesting happens, and something interesting happens every time. That doesn’t mean that it worked or that it’s functional, just something interesting. Like a gargantuan cauliflower mess which I try to avoid as often as possible.

IMG_8295

Disregarding my misadventures with combustible cauliflower , I do actually really enjoy the taste of cauliflower. At least I do now, and I’m not certain why. I just started eating it out of no where along with other vegetables and now I fully enjoy all of the vegetables under the sun. Even the ones not directly under the sun. Can’t leave out root vegetables right? Even if you don’t like cauliflower or have someone that doesn’t like cauliflower in your home I can tell you now that this actually doesn’t taste like cauliflower at all. It doesn’t taste eggy in my opinion either.

IMG_8303

I personally don’t like something that tastes too eggy if it’s not an egg dish. So this one definitely hits all of those notes. Now when I discovered this beautiful concoction you should have seen the look on my mom’s face and mine. Silence fell upon the room as we slid the golden, warm and soft beauty out of the pan from browning and me and my mom looked at each other at the same time with wide eyes and expressions of befuddlement painted on our faces. It actually looked like a tradition soft tortilla.

IMG_8309

Ironically the drained cauliflower kind of looks like fresh masa flour as well. I personally prefer lettuce wraps because they are fast and easy. But if you’re ever looking for a change of pace this is an excellent way to get your veggies in and have a nice soft and warm tortilla at the same time. That’s a win win in my book. I made these for a recipe for carnitas that I was working on and they went so good with them. Nice crispy and delectable pieces of pork on top a soft tortilla with fresh chopped onions, creamy fresh made grass fed sour cream, my special guacamole, some tangy grass fed Queso Blanco, and finished with some fragrant chopped cilantro.

I loaded those gorgeous things up and I suggest the same. Luckily they hold a bunch of toppings and ingredients pretty well so don’t be afraid to bulk up on toppings.  And everyone would have been none the wiser to the fact that they were also get a dose of cauliflower in that. At least we can hope that they don’t know they are eating paleo tortillas.

Cauliflower Tortillas (Paleo, Grain Free, Gluten free)
4.8 from 63 reviews
Print
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 6-7
Ingredients
  • ¾ a head of cauliflower riced or 2 cups riced and packed
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. For these I actually rice my cauliflower slightly more fine that cauliflower rice. Toss ¾ a head of cauliflower cut up and most of the stem removed and pulse until you get a texture slightly finer than rice. (Once it's riced measure it to make sure you have 2 cups packed.)
  3. Place riced cauliflower in bowl and microwave for 2 minutes and stir, then another two minutes and stir again then place in a dish towel and squeeze excess water out as hard as you can. (You're going to want to get out as much water as you can and be careful not to burn yourself because it's going to be very hot.)
  4. Place drained cauliflower back in bowl and add two eggs, salt and pepper and mix until well combined.
  5. As a note it will be a little bit runny but shouldn't be pure liquid either. Spread mixture onto a baking sheet into 6 small fairly flat circles.
  6. Place in the oven for 10 minutes then pull out of the oven and carefully peel them off the parchment and flip them and place back in the oven for 5-7 more minutes.
  7. Once they're done place them on a wire rack to cool slightly.
  8. Heat a medium sized pan over medium heat and place the tortillas into the pan pressing down slightly and brown them to your liking. (Don't skip this step because it gives them slightly crispy on the edges and gives them a wonderfully nutty taste)
Notes
As it turns out Empowered Sustenance did a recipe that was similar to mine and she did it before me! I suppose great minds think alike. Also if you don't know what to serve with these my favorite things that I've made with them so far are my Carnitas and Huevos Rancheros.

    Beside the toppings above, could you suggest anything else that go well with these tortillas, for breakfast maybe ?

    • Liz 28 April, 2013 at 11:16 am #

      Top with fruit, canned coconut milk and whip it up use it as a dessert. Use it like a pancake. I think you could use it like a pita bread.

    • Ca.Girl 4 October, 2013 at 11:32 am #

      As one who does have nor use a microwave couldn’t the cauliflower be stemmed
      first then riced?

      • Naomi 20 January, 2014 at 10:00 am #

        We don’t have a microwave either – we’ve been ricing and then baking for 25 minutes at 350. Skip the squeezing out step. This seems to work as well as the microwave way (and you don’t have to squeeze the water which is not a fun part of the recipe!). I’m going to try to just mix raw riced cauliflower next time to see if that works.

        • Maria 29 January, 2014 at 9:04 am #

          thanks Naomi

        • Cindy A 29 January, 2014 at 10:48 pm #

          Thank you for this tip for making them without a microwave as we choose several years ago to quit using one!

        • natasha 2 April, 2014 at 4:38 pm #

          Naomi-do you bake the riced cauliflower on parchment paper? what do you use to prevent sticking?
          Thank you!

          • Sheila Iszler 3 June, 2014 at 6:10 pm #

            Yeah…please tell us how to get these off of the paper. Mine are stuck, after all that work, and expense.

          • Slim Palate 4 June, 2014 at 8:11 pm #

            Did you use parchment paper? If you used the right kind of parchment they shouldn’t have stuck.

      • Maria 29 January, 2014 at 9:03 am #

        Good question

      • Elesha Herrst 7 March, 2014 at 2:24 pm #

        I just lined my steamer pan with the cheesecloth then dumped the riced cauliflower in and steamed it that way. When it was done, I just pulled the cheesecloth wrapped cauliflower out and strained the water out.

    • Jenifer 1 April, 2014 at 8:47 am #

      Someone may have already said this (there are a lot of comments) but we made this recipe “3-ways” last night: Regular, Garlic & Rosemary, and Cinnamon.ila We used the regular tortillas as shells for machaca street tacos with shredded cabbage, avocado…the works! The tortillas held up perfectly. For the cinnamon, instead of salt and pepper to taste, we added about 1T cinnamon. We just reheated them in a skillet the next morning for breakfast as a pancake substitute, topped with mixed berry compote and a dab of sour cream. We both said we would definitely make them like this again. For the herbed one, we replaced the S&P with 1t minced garlic and about 1T finely chopped rosemary. Haven’t eaten them yet but they smell awesome.

    • Eduard 2 June, 2014 at 9:33 pm #

      eggs + chorizo // nothing better

  2. Emily 25 April, 2013 at 6:56 am #

    How would you suggest cooking the cauliflower without a microwave?

    • Jill 26 April, 2013 at 8:53 am #

      I’m with you. Don’t own a microwave, never will. How might we modify this step? Because otherwise, these sound delicious!

      • Slim Palate 26 April, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

        Well I suppose you could steam it. One of the commenters on here by the name of Angela stated a good idea to put it in a nut milk back or cheese cloth and put it in a steamer pot and steam it for the same amount of time or slightly more then proceed with the rest of the steps.

        • veta 1 June, 2013 at 10:28 am #

          I’m new to this site and am glad I found it. What is a “nut milk back” ?

          • Slim Palate 1 June, 2013 at 10:32 am #

            Sorry that was a typo. Nut milk bag is what I meant to say.

          • elizabethclements 1 June, 2013 at 10:44 am #

            nut milk bag.

        • Newbie 11 September, 2013 at 11:30 am #

          I could care less if one uses a microwave or not. To each his own. Thank you for the recipe. It looks great. Thank you. Getting very bored with this new way of life, and this may help kick it up a bit. As for the rest, suggesting how you cook it is great, anyone who cooks can use their own brain cell and figure out how to cook it to their own desires. Not like you held a gun to their heads and said it had to be done this way. Thank you again.

          • NewbieToo 22 September, 2013 at 11:13 am #

            @Newbie – not everyone is a skilled cook and many times the way you cook something affects the texture. Like yourself, I’m a pretty good cook so I might have just experimented with other methods, but it is a valid Q. Try to practice kindness and compassion and perhaps your energy will improve and you won’t be so bored. Less judgement, more good karma. Namaste.

          • HCHARRY 19 October, 2013 at 6:22 am #

            I’ve cooked for many years but new to this type of cooking/food so I need a good recipe from someone more experienced to go on. I also don’t use a microwave for culinary reasons and health reasons so people like me are curious the best way to adapt the recipe to get the same result. People ask lots of adaptation questions, especially when it comes to allergies, etc.and these are all valid concerns. You needn’t be so hostile.

      • sunny 30 April, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

        Just a quick note for those who may be afraid of using microwaves – several, and I mean several credible studies have been done on the safety of using microwaves, the dangers it imparts into your food and into your home, etc. – all those myths have been debunked, and it has been proven that there is zero risk to the consumer… if anything, using the microwave in certain instances is actually more beneficial than another type of cooking, as it does not leech out nutrients that you’d lose, say from boiling, sauteeing, frying, etc – I always use my microwave to lightly steam fresh vegetables and always get amazing results – I’m a chef in a very high end fine dining establishment, and not only I, but several other restaurants use a microwave to some capacity – just thought I’d shed some light for those who are afraid to use this appliance for what we’ve been misled to believe in the 80’s. Thanks all! =)

        • Aaron 1 May, 2013 at 6:37 am #

          This is a recipe I intend to try, but I agree with the others here on steaming as oppposed to microwaving. As for the comment about microwaves being safe… garbage. Do the research and follow the money. There is plenty of evidence to indicate that microwaving your food is bad for a number of reasons. Here is one comprehensive article to start reading http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/05/18/microwave-hazards.aspx

          • Slim Palate 1 May, 2013 at 4:30 pm #

            I think the choice here depends on whether or not someone thinks it is safe. When I eat an otherwise nutrient dense and healthy diet I don’t think the occasional microwaved cauliflower is going to kill me. You have to give a little in some places in order to live sane, but thank you for the article.

          • sunny 1 May, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

            No need to call anyone’s comments on here “garbage”… I might be wrong, but I don’t think anybody on here is a nuclear physicist or biologist to explain cell structure, and the possible harm, if any, that’s imparted on food in the microwave process. However to reply to the statement bade by Mercola… Dr. Mercola is one to promote the all-natural approach to anything possible, which is great… however, many of his approaches have also been followed up on as being inconclusive, irrelevant, etc. in certain cases. I do have a background in nutrition as well, so I’ve read my share of reports, journals, studies, etc., and have used them to guide my personal choice on what foods I eat, how I eat/prepare them, etc. – The “char” from grilling foods has long been considered a carcinogen, and while a percentage of this is accurate, one needs to use some logic here and understand that the microscopic amount of “char” entering your system would do absolutely nothing… all things are relevant here. Also, the article from the Mercola link is 3 years old… considering the studies and research that come up every single day about what’s healthy/unhealthy… by the time you’ve finished reading, what was once said to be bad for you, let’s say coffee for example, is now said to be good for you… in 2 weeks it will be bad again. It’s an absolute choice to prepare your food the way you’d like – I just don’t want a busy mom of 4 to be throwing out her microwave because she’s misled that her entire lineage will be getting cancer in the future because she used it to flash steam her veggies, and in turn, decides to open up a can of vegetables instead of the microwaved ones so she can quickly feed her kids some source of vegetable. In either case, all the information is out there people… do your research, decide for yourselves what fits your lifestyle, and have fun over all. If I die 5 days earlier in this journey because I microwaved certain items, so be it. I don’t smoke, drink, do drugs, etc.

          • Janet 3 May, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

            Sunny, I agree with you. I was listening to the Paleo View podcast (episode 10 – http://www.thepaleomom.com/2012/10/tpv-episode-10-show-notes-beauty-products-and-other-potential-hazards.html) and Sarah Ballantyne (who was a research scientist) explains why microwave cooking is *not* bad for you. I use mine all the time. I’ve used it for softening up riced cauliflower but I also steam cauliflower when I want to make a mock mashed potato (I think you get a smoother texture from steaming the cauliflower for 10 minutes than you do if microwaving it because the microwave method tends to dry out the cauliflower more). That being said, if you don’t have a microwave, then steaming should work just fine. And as I mentioned in another post, if the cauliflower is too moist, you can use a potato ricer to squeeze out the extra moisture (though if your cauliflower has too fine a texture, I’d line the ricer with cheese cloth so you don’t end up squeezing the cauliflower out the ricer holes as well).

          • Peaslepuff 19 August, 2013 at 9:07 am #

            Oh my god. Nobody should listen to anyone saying microwaves aren’t safe. They are not smart.

        • barb 24 May, 2013 at 8:45 am #

          Nope. Microwaves kill the energy in food. Read some of the books written by Dr. Masaru Emoto and his amazing work with water. Microwaves create some pretty scary things in food. One little test you can do for yourself is to water one plant with regular tap water, and another plant with microwaved water. The latter plant will wither and die quite quickly.

          • Slim Palate 26 May, 2013 at 10:02 am #

            Not necessarily there are contradictory studies that say that it actually preserves nutrients in food more than some other cooking methods. Even Robb Wolf is pro Microwave, just listen to the beginning of this podcast.

          • Robin 26 May, 2013 at 10:51 am #

            I don’t know if I can include a link here, but the “microwaved water kills plants” thing has been disproven over and over again.

            http://www.snopes.com/science/microwave/plants.asp

          • Kevin 1 June, 2013 at 7:04 pm #

            The “energy in food?” Now that is some pseudoscience. It isn’t “energy.” Everyone knows it is the food fairies who sprinkle magic dust on the food before you eat it. The food fairies get dizzy from the spinning plate in the microwave, and fall off the food before they can sprinkle their magic nutrition dust. This is why you should also never use a lazy Susan to serve guests, as it also makes the food fairies dizzy.

          • Kris 4 June, 2013 at 6:49 am #

            Using Mercola as an authority is just too precious. Kevin, you crack me up!!

          • Christy 29 July, 2013 at 10:11 pm #

            We had also heard from a “reliable” friend that microwaved water would kill plants. So my grandson did the experiment with two plants. One watered with tap water and one with microwaved water. The one with microwaved water actually did better than the other one. Conclusion: the only way microwaved water will kill a plant is if you pour it on the plant straight out of the microwave before allowing it to cool.

          • Christy 29 July, 2013 at 10:13 pm #

            My grandson’s experiment on plants watered with microwaved water was for a science fair project and lasted for a few weeks.

          • I am not a stupid person 20 August, 2013 at 9:30 am #

            Kill the energy? What are you on about?

            You are mixing up ionizing radiation with non-ionizing radiation.

          • LadyJane 28 August, 2013 at 5:17 pm #

            The reason microwaving water is bad for plants is the same reason using reverse osmosis water is bad for fish. They both need the stuff in water other than H2o to live. Both processes leech water of the beneficial nutrients needed. People don’t have the same systems so its not bad for us. I’m not starting on microwaves being bad or good. I’m just saying its not comparing apples to apples. We can drink electrolyte enhanced water but they may not work for other living things.

          • biologymajor 6 October, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

            Microwaves work by making water molecules spin very fast therefore causing friction=product of heat. I myself am not a nuclear physicist or anything but my professor that I took physics with is.

        • veronique 31 May, 2013 at 9:20 am #

          Recipe sounds delicious and will try it over the weekend. However will agree with everybody else regarding microwave ovens!!!!!!! been microwave oven free for 4 years and happy to have gotten rid of it. Mercola is a great site to be signed up with. Even our Holistic doctor told us to get rid of it.

          • Bob 8 June, 2013 at 10:15 am #

            Mercola is a quack! This whole microwave thought process stems from CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine; now disguised as Integrative Medicine) professions focused on homeopathy, chiropractic adjustment cures, magnetic therapy, and other fraudulent health professions. If your truly concerned about microwave safety, I would suggest going to your local library or university, and read peer-reviewed scientific journals rather than opinion pieces posted on various websites. This discussion represents what’s wrong with modern society. You lack to the critical thinking skills and motivation to read objective evidence to support your thinking. You rather rely on opinion websites, wikipedia, or other biased sources rather than forming your opinion from the data presented in scientific journals.

          • Aim 16 June, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

            Mercola is not a quack! He is an MD that realized there is more to practicing medicine than prescribing chemicals to cover up symptoms (which is not taking care of what is causing the symptoms). He decided to learn about getting to the root of health problems, two of which are a lack of nutrients in one’s diet, and our bodies being exposed to toxins. He later decided to further his education and became an ND in addition to already being an MD. He knows the science and is humble enough to go against the grain and admit that typical western medicine is not perfect and therefore seeks out the truth no matter what instead of accepting complacency.

        • Nora 21 June, 2013 at 2:14 pm #

          There have been many studies linking health risks to microwaves.

          • I am not a stupid person 20 August, 2013 at 9:33 am #

            Obviously, that’s why you linked to none. Look here, I can do the same thing:

          • I'm not stupid either 4 December, 2013 at 11:19 am #

            OMG’ness, I am not a stupid person..I think I might have spit bombed my computer reading your post! LOL touchè Ya, I think all this microwave scare stuff is straight out of the 70s when it was all so new. If anything, the plastic container you use is what’s going to cause you an early death. Use glass and live 5 days longer! Whatever, if you don’t want to use the microwave, it’s your option. Personally, i prefer steaming cauliflower on the stove as the microwave tends to dry it out. Make sure you’re not using aluminum pots tho..that’s a whole ‘nother killer which we’ll save to hijack a different post later. BTW, great recipe, thank you…Just what I needed!

        • Rama 23 June, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

          I have to agree to disagree on this. I’m in school right now for nutrition and we went over microwaving and the process of what it actually does and at the end of the day microwaved food is merely dead food. That is why you are never to put breast milk in a microwave, babies who have microwaved milk also have failure to thrive. Think about folks who microwave most or nearly all of their food?

          ‘Ionizing, or simply displacing a single electron sounds harmless enough, but this is enough energy to destroy biological molecules. This is what kills every living organism that goes through the irradiation [11] process, including the food.’

          I personally think the taste alone should be enough. Microwaved food is nasty.

          • I am not a stupid person 20 August, 2013 at 9:34 am #

            Yes, I agree that ionizing radiation is very dangerous. That’s why x-rays are oh so dangerous.

            Too bad for you that microwaves produce non-ionizing radiation.

          • Starky 20 September, 2013 at 8:27 am #

            The reason that you are advised to never heat baby milk in a microwave is because it cannot be guaranteed to heat evenly. Thus it is possible to overheat areas of the milk, potentially burning the baby.

          • biologymajor 6 October, 2013 at 6:01 pm #

            You also have to think about what people are putting in the microwave. I can see the validity in microwave harm but what was the food in the research? What “healthy person” makes most of their sautéed veggies in the microwave? They are convenience machines therefore used for convenience foods such as freezer dinners etc. I believe that food is a huge component in how the body develops and thrives, therefore if you give yourself a bunch of raw fruit and veggies, you are probably going to be doing better (health wise) than those who pop in a “hungry man” after work.

        • Tami 26 June, 2013 at 7:03 pm #

          Microwaving does destroy Oxalic Acid, a natural component of blood that blocks/kills/washes cancer cells. Nobody will ever have this information until they research Colonel Joe Hart’s patents for a diet–a cancer, tumor diet. It is the only patented diet on record. And a microwave hits 40,000 gauze measured through your body standing 5 feet away. I was the person tested. So, microwave EMFs also destroy all the oxalic acid in your herbs stored . . .well, generally, right next to the microwave.

        • Lynnda 28 June, 2013 at 12:27 pm #

          I guess it depends who did the study.
          Through a reliable natural herbs supplier and their national training seminars they quote research results that prove microwaves rob all food of all their nutrients. Coupled with that fact that in less than 1 year breast cancer rates jumped up at least 30% after we began putting microwave ovens in homes. We had our home appliances tested for EMF exposures and it was eye opening. If you question microwaves and emissions from TV’s, computers and home appliances you may want to have an EMF Sientist test your home, even your microwave. Then you’ll know whether these are safe or not.

        • Paddy 23 September, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

          I’d be interested in seeing a few links to credible studies if you’ll provide. I heard enough 15 years ago that made sense and caused me to steer clear of nuking food. There are as many “studies” promoting coffee and alcohol, for example and often are promoted by the very industries that are dependent upon their consumption.

          I’m ok with slow food and the meditative states possible when not in a rush.

        • Allison 5 January, 2014 at 7:24 pm #

          Here Here! Sunny!

          Microwaves are perfectly safe, and all those silly memes you see on facebook saying plants don’t grow in microwaved water have been thoroughly debunked, and real evidence has found zero health risks.

          That said, some people just don’t have microwaves, like myself. My boyfriend and I live in a teeny tiny apartment and where would we put it? Out on the balcony with the BBQ? Haha!

          I’m glad that the question was asked, how to do that step without a microwave. I was wondering the same thing. Of course, I could have given it a shot but it’s nice to have some ideas from the gal who came up with this recipe. :)

          I’m going to give this a try very very soon!

    • Angela @ Nine More Months 26 April, 2013 at 9:37 am #

      I was wondering this too. I was thinking I could put it in my nut milk bag and then in the steamer pot for a few minutes, let it cool, and then squeeze out the water.

      • Slim Palate 26 April, 2013 at 2:49 pm #

        This is a wonderful suggestions thank you.

      • Georgia 26 April, 2013 at 5:20 pm #

        A simple steamer basket with parchment in the bottom will work ( bamboo steamer). I think you could skip the step all together really. ( I am a Chef of 20 years). I love this idea, thank you for sharing it.

    • WB Deborah 12 May, 2013 at 10:20 am #

      I dont’ have a microwave, it broke down about 4 years ago, and we do NOT miss it at all. For the Tortilla recipe, I blended the cauliflower raw with the egg and salt, cooked it on a flat cast iron pan. I pour individual as needed onto the pan after I’ve put coconut oil spray on it and then cook it for a few minutes, then flip it. Too easy. I don’t use the oven method for these, we’re only 2 here, so it’s easy.
      Oh! I didn’t even press out the excess water, came out beautifully. ;)

      • oceantbear 26 May, 2013 at 1:35 am #

        Deborah,

        Sounds like you were happy with the outcome. I’m an impatient cook, thanks for posting I wanted to try these and will now~Thanks to you.

      • CONNIE ENDERLE 30 May, 2013 at 4:37 am #

        These also make perfect mini pizzas for the kids or adults as well. I rice the cauliflower ahead of time and vacuum seal and freeze for an even quicker meal.
        I use a non-stick fry pan with a little olive oil and put out some toppings to choose from and add the sauce and make our own individual pizzas and they are awesome and nutritious!

        fantastic – thanks for making these the easy way. will have a go asap. yum

      • Liz 21 September, 2013 at 4:05 am #

        Made them just as you said, but made blinis for smoked salmon, so very little tortillas… This is an amazing recipe!

        • Slim Palate 21 September, 2013 at 9:05 pm #

          That is an excellent idea!

      • Jennifer 3 January, 2014 at 12:16 pm #

        Awesome, I think I’m going to try this method – I have some cauliflower to use up.

      • Lisa 17 January, 2014 at 9:18 pm #

        Of course you didn’t press out the excess water. If you mixed raw cauliflower with the egg, and didn’t steam or microwave first, you wouldn’t HAVE excess water. Personally, microwave or steam (to each his own, people, stop preaching please!), I would think cooking the cauliflower first would result in a smoother texture.

        • anna 25 April, 2014 at 8:10 am #

          Yes but the water is still in the cauli which would steam when baking, and the point here is to have something more dry, less wet and gooey so getting the water out is a thing still. :)

    • martha 22 September, 2013 at 10:15 am #

      steam

    • anna 25 April, 2014 at 8:08 am #

      It’s really easy to just steam the cauliflower and then rice it in the food processor. Just don’t overcook it! The point is just to somehow get the water to release from the caulk, which will happen when you squeeze. When making just plain old cauli rice, you don’t need the squeezing part. I like to finish in the pan with some butter, garlic, a spot of chicken stock and some lemon and parsley. Super delicious.

    • Good Morning.

      My understanding is, that the Paleo diet and cooking in the microwave do not fit together. It goes against the basic principles of untreated food as possible.

      regards

  3. Strictly Paleo...ish! 25 April, 2013 at 7:17 am #

    WOW!
    They look _delicious_ Joshua, beautiful!
    Perfect alternative to nut flour based wraps for us that do keep an eye on the carb count.
    Will definitely try these out at some point. Definitely.

    Thanks for this one, love reading about experiments in the kitchen that turns out not only great, but kind of revolutionizes the meal options for a Paleo lifestyle.
    I think this one falls into that category!

    Take care and keep up the (extremely) good work you bless us all with! :)

    // Peter

    Btw, would they still hold together well if made larger you think?

  4. Macromika 25 April, 2013 at 7:25 am #

    Dooood! Kid, you’re a genius!!!

  5. Allan Taylor 25 April, 2013 at 9:09 am #

    Excited to try this with some pork, maybe some tacos al pastor. :)

    I like the print button BTW, that’s a great idea for setting up recipes on the blog, as well as the rating system. Can you let me know what plugins you used for that? Going to try something similar with our blog as well, as soon as we move to self hosting.

    Keep up the awesome work!

  6. CarolG 25 April, 2013 at 9:15 am #

    wow, you are a food genius! Thank you for another great recipe. I am going to try these with flax “eggs” since my daughter is allergic to eggs. She is 17 and trying to stay completely paleo but multiple food allergies makes it difficult.

    • Sue 3 June, 2013 at 8:42 am #

      My granddaughter is allergic to egg also. How do you make them without egg.

    • Dena 8 September, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

      curious if you made the tortillas with the flax eggs and how they turned out. I made them and they completely fell apart. I am thinking maybe I should not have squeezed out the water. It;s like there was nothing to bond them together – I was SO disappointed, I was looking forward to using them for fajitas :). thx, Dena

      • microlove 6 March, 2014 at 10:03 pm #

        try using a microwave

    • Molly 28 January, 2014 at 9:26 pm #

      Any luck with a no egg version?

  7. Janet 25 April, 2013 at 9:31 am #

    Just an FYI, I find using a potato ricer a good way to squeeze out excess water from veggies without burning your fingers.

  8. Julie @ Homegrown Paleo 25 April, 2013 at 9:38 am #

    Josh, these look wonderful! I can’t wait to try these for my hubby who misses tortillas so much. I’m also thinking you could make them a bit thinner and fry them or bake to make “chips.” Mexican night here we come!

    • Slim Palate 25 April, 2013 at 2:31 pm #

      You may be able to fry them but they would come out as droplets. Definitely something to think of.

      • Vered Leb 26 April, 2013 at 3:02 am #

        i actually fried one, because i had some leftover batter that didn’t fit in the oven.
        i fried it in coconut oil and it was really good. it should be a smallish one, not quite big as the oven ones, maybe half the size

  9. Kim @ Stay At Home Paleo 25 April, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    My kids are going to be thrilled with these! I don’t tend to paleoize things for myself but my kids are begging for something besides lettuce and lunchmeat to wrap things in. My resistant husband too LOL!

  10. Erica 25 April, 2013 at 9:56 am #

    This is still on my list to try, so I’m going to follow yours! Is this similar to the pizza crust recipe that so many use? I’ve been wanting to try that forever, as well. Your photos are getting better all the time!

    Best wishes,
    Erica

    • Slim Palate 25 April, 2013 at 2:30 pm #

      Hi Erica, I actually got the idea for these after looking at different cauliflower pizza crusts. I would say that this is actually really different from cauliflower pizza crusts. It’s surprisingly a lot like a soft tortilla to me.

  11. Jennifer 25 April, 2013 at 10:35 am #

    You ROCK…..that is all:-)

    Seriously…thank you for all that you do and these amazing creations you so generously share with us.

  12. Jillian Leigh 25 April, 2013 at 11:02 am #

    you just rocked my world!! we haven’t given up tortillas yet…. mexican hubby and all.

  13. Anne 25 April, 2013 at 11:45 am #

    Josh, I don’t like to use the microwave, do you suggest heating up the cauliflower in a pan on the stove instead?

  14. Lisa Branam 25 April, 2013 at 1:54 pm #

    What a great use if cauliflower! I’ll be making these in the next few weeks. I can’t wait.

  15. Lauren @ Empowered Sustenance 25 April, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    I love cauliflower’s versatility, too! I shared a recipe for Cauliflower Wraps a while ago (http://empoweredsustenance.com/cauliflower-wraps/). It uses the same ingredients and techniques that you use.

    I love the idea of using toppings like guacamole and sour cream.

    • Slim Palate 25 April, 2013 at 2:28 pm #

      Oh my goodness! Yours is strangely close to my recipe. I swear I didn’t swipe the recipe from you though. I got the idea when I was looking at some recipe for cauliflower pizza crust.

      • Lauren @ Empowered Sustenance 25 April, 2013 at 2:54 pm #

        No worries, I’m sure you didn’t take my recipe! I got the idea from the cauliflower pizza crust, too. Oh, and the pictures here are gorgeous (as usual, of course)!

  16. christine 25 April, 2013 at 4:32 pm #

    These are in the oven as we speak! Thank you!

  17. Amber 25 April, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

    Do these have an “eggy” consistency? You know, kinda spongy? If so my son won’t touch them and it wouldn’t be worth the effort.
    Great idea though!

    • Slim Palate 25 April, 2013 at 8:02 pm #

      That’s what is wonderful about these. They don’t taste eggy or have a spongey texture at all. They have a very similar texture to regular soft tortillas actually.

      • Amber 26 April, 2013 at 12:12 am #

        excellent, I’ll give it a go!

  18. Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen 25 April, 2013 at 7:31 pm #

    Very smart idea, and they bend beautifully too.

  19. Molly (Sprue Story) 25 April, 2013 at 7:51 pm #

    These look so good and remind me all over again that I really need to try out the cauliflower pizza thing. I might go for these first! I know this is a tortilla recipe, but to me, thickness-wise, they seem like they’d work great as a pita or a flatbread too, which has me thinking about all the saucy Indian dishes that could go along with it. Cauliflower and Indian are a perfect combo, too!

    • Slim Palate 25 April, 2013 at 8:02 pm #

      You’re a genius.

      • Molly 26 April, 2013 at 9:15 am #

        No, just a humble food lover relying on folks like you for inspiration! :)

    • SMB 26 April, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

      Ditto! I was just thinking about combining these with the prior curry recipe. Hmm, might be my weekend adventure.

  20. Shawnte 25 April, 2013 at 10:47 pm #

    This looks so yummy! I was thinking of an alternative and this looks spot on! I love tortillas so I am gonna make this tomorrow!

  21. Shawnte 25 April, 2013 at 10:49 pm #

    Can’t wait to try this!!! I love this idea (why didn’t I think of this haha) love it!! Thank you so much!!

  22. Kit 25 April, 2013 at 11:03 pm #

    I too, want to know how to make these without a microwave.

  23. Kamola 26 April, 2013 at 1:30 am #

    I started craving this since last night when I saw the recipe. And I have made this tortillas for my lunch today, put creamed mushrooms with dill over them. It was heavenly delicious! Thanks for this recipe!

  24. Vered Leb 26 April, 2013 at 2:56 am #

    just made them, and we ate them with sour cream and veggies!
    awsome.
    it really resembles our jewish latkes
    thanx

  25. Kristen@Change of Pace 26 April, 2013 at 4:32 am #

    No way! You could also use them as a pizza crust… Just add some marinara, veggies, and meat. That cauliflower pizza crust recipe going around uses so much cheese. I’ve tried it a couple times and end up with a stomach ache.

  26. Sally 26 April, 2013 at 9:07 am #

    Amazing!! Those look so good! You are right, lettuce wraps are nice because they’re easy, but I sure miss tortillas. Can’t wait to try this!

  27. Ashley 27 April, 2013 at 9:32 am #

    I was wondering if you can freeze these & if so should you freeze them before or after you cook them? I think it would be awesome to make a bunch at one time & have them ready to go when needed!

    • Slim Palate 27 April, 2013 at 2:50 pm #

      I personally haven’t but I have refrigerated them several times for several days and they come out just fine so I’d imagine you can freeze them without any problems.

  28. Aviva 27 April, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    WEIRD QUESTION! Do you think it would work with frozen cauliflower?

    • Slim Palate 28 April, 2013 at 1:30 pm #

      I don’t see why not. Just be sure to thaw it and cook it first of course.

  29. Melanie 27 April, 2013 at 7:32 pm #

    I can’t wait to try this! I’ve made the cauliflower pizza crust a couple times and love it, so I’m sure this is awesome, too. I steam the cauliflower, then use a ricer, riding the cauliflower into a strainer. Gets most of the water out. Enjoy!

  30. Beth 27 April, 2013 at 11:52 pm #

    I don’t want to use the microwave but I don’t have a steamer either. Any other ways?

  31. Adam 28 April, 2013 at 9:59 am #

    What if you used a juicer to extract the moisture? The pulp would be quite a bit finer than rice but then you might be able to skip the microwave step? You’d then have cauliflower juice (alone or as a base) to drink along with breakfast…

    • Slim Palate 28 April, 2013 at 1:31 pm #

      That’s an interesting idea. Let me know if it works.

    • Yvie 3 May, 2013 at 12:22 pm #

      Please let me know if you did this and if it worked! That sounds like a brilliant idea!

    • Yvie 5 May, 2013 at 9:40 pm #

      I tried this using your juicer idea – it worked PERFECT! I admit that I did not drink the juice … LoL

  32. Kim @ Stay At Home Paleo 28 April, 2013 at 8:44 pm #

    I haven’t read the million comments but when you steam the cauliflower and you’re worried about too much moisture in the cauliflower you can throw them on a sheet pan and dry them out a tad before processing them. I never seem to be able to squeeze out enough moisture when I steam of lightly boil them. Roasting them seems to do the trick.

  33. AddieMay 28 April, 2013 at 10:53 pm #

    where do you find grassfed sour cream and queso blanco?? I’ve looked everywhere and come up empty handed:( I would kill for some sour cream!! thank you, recipe and pics look great!!

    • Slim Palate 29 April, 2013 at 6:10 am #

      I wish I could recommend a brand to you but I’m afraid I cannot. I get my grass0fed sour cream and queso blanco raw from a local farm down here in Texas.

      • AddieMay 29 April, 2013 at 12:21 pm #

        uuugghhh, of course you do:) i’ll just have to keep searching. I would love to find a local source. I’ve cruised US Wellness Meats and other various sites hoping they would carry anything close and they don’t. I live in LA, it can’t be that hard to find. I’ll just keep at it, thank you again for this AMAZING recipe. It looks scrumptious!!!

      • Ann 4 May, 2013 at 4:12 pm #

        I live in Texas also, near the DFW area in North Texas. Do you mind sharing the name of the farm you use, and also, can you recommend a place to buy grass-fed buffalo meat or beef?

        These Cauliflower Tortillas look and sound delicious!

    • VC 8 June, 2014 at 8:23 am #

      Make your own. Sour cream is SUPER easy, and queso blanco isn’t much harder. Check out “Home Cheese making” by Ricki Carroll, or “The America’s Test Kitchen d.i.y. cookbook” for recipes. They’re also on the internet.

      If you can source the milk/cream, you can order the cultures online.

  34. linda 29 April, 2013 at 6:35 am #

    Thank you so much for this recipe! I’ve recently been told to avoid wheat, all dairy, eggs, corn, and soy, among other foods due to food allergies. Your recipe gives me hope, thank you!!

  35. linda 29 April, 2013 at 7:50 am #

    Just tried my first batch using flaxseed as my egg substitute, which did not work. Ended up with a shredded mess that did not hold together. Do you have any suggestions to try?

    • Molly (Sprue Story) 30 April, 2013 at 8:47 pm #

      Linda, I haven’t tried this yet but I’m planning to see if chickpea flour (plus extra water) can be subbed for the eggs. It’s less paleo that way but still grain-free & gluten-free; not sure what your dietary requirements are but if you eat chickpea flour I highly recommend it as an egg replacer. It may need to be toasted a bit before used, to get rid of the raw taste. I’ll be experimenting this weekend, methinks!

      • Molly (Sprue Story) 2 May, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

        I just made them with a mix of chickpea flour & flaxseed gel as binder instead of egg. I did need to cook them a little longer to get out the chickpea flour beany taste, but then they came out great. If anyone around here is okay with chickpea flour (again, not paleo), I recommend it! And cauliflower + chickpeas + Indian is another classic combo, so I think I’ll still try them with a curry this weekend.

        Thanks again for the inspiration!

        • angela 8 October, 2013 at 9:30 pm #

          These look great! I was wondering if you could list the specific measurements you used for the egg free version? Thanks! :-)

          • Slim Palate 9 October, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

            I never tested or tried an egg free version so I do not know, sorry.

  36. Sanni 29 April, 2013 at 1:26 pm #

    OMG!! Everybody must try these!!!! Thank you sooo much for sharing this recipe. Mine weren’t as pretty as yours but they tasted great. I will be making these regularly!!

  37. sunny 30 April, 2013 at 2:45 pm #

    Has anyone experimented with possibly using a food processor to finely dice these up if you don’t own a ricer? Just wondering if that can be done, and then strained? Thanks!

    • Slim Palate 30 April, 2013 at 7:07 pm #

      I did this in a food processor actually, so yes you will do just fine with a food processor. Also thank you so very much for your wonderful comment prior to this one, it really, really made my day.

      • sunny 30 April, 2013 at 7:13 pm #

        Haha… you’re so very welcome! And thank you for your discoveries and fun with food!

  38. Amanda Curtis 1 May, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    I tried these last night! They were amazing!!! I made a portobella “burger” in the oven and used these as the “bun”… it was very tasty

    • Karen 21 June, 2013 at 4:40 am #

      Thank you,thank you,thank you I have a recipe for Portabella Mushroom and Pineapple slice burgers and wanted a good healthy bun-voila you just gave me the buns(tortillas) I will make for these delish burgers. :0)

  39. Pat 2 May, 2013 at 8:24 pm #

    I do not have a microwave – how to do the recipe freehand?

    • Julie 5 May, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

      I didn’t use a microwave at all. I just riced it and a bunch of water will still come out when it it uncooked (squeezing in a towel). Tortillas turned out great!

  40. Donna 3 May, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    What does it mean to “cauliflower riced” – I’ve never used cauliflower before — little leary but wanted to give them a try

    • Slim Palate 5 May, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

      To cut it up into smaller bits similar to a rice texture. YOu can do it by grating it or pulsing it in a food processor until you get rice like texture. Good look!

  41. Julie 3 May, 2013 at 5:35 pm #

    For all you non-microwavers out there – I found there is no need to nuke the cauliflower or even steam it. I whirled it in the food processor to “rice” them, then just squeezed the heck out them in a cloth napkin. Lots of liquid will come out! I also went ahead and used a whole head of cauliflower, and just added eggs until the consistency was correct (it took 2 eggs for me). Yum!

    • Beth 5 May, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

      will a blender work? I don’t own a food processor.

      • Slim Palate 5 May, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

        If it has a pulse function then it should.

      • Hannah 23 June, 2013 at 1:01 pm #

        I used my cheap little Ninja and it worked!

  42. SarahA 5 May, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

    Thank you, thank you!!! I started a 30 day grain/gluten free challenge for May, and this is AMAZING. Just made these this evening and created tacos with them. I am a bariatric patient so this is a very great alternative to eating things that may not work for me. Thank you for all you do. What a great site.

    • Slim Palate 5 May, 2013 at 8:36 pm #

      I’m glad to be of help Sarah. Good luck with your challenge!

  43. Yvie 5 May, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

    I made these today and as someone suggested, I used my juicer to process the cauliflower – the result was a super fine meal. I did press the meal between a couple of paper towels just to remove any extra liquid. I had these with some chicken & guacamole and honestly, this was just an awesome meal!!!

    This recipe is super easy and yields a VERY satisfying product!!! I highly recommend making these!!! If you’re on the fence wondering if it’s worth trying, it definitely is!!!

  44. Lisa 6 May, 2013 at 9:17 am #

    WOW – made these yesterday for Cinco de Mayo feast and they were a hit! Honestly just perfect. Thank you for such a fabulous tortilla alternative. I just recently discovered your blog and have to say it is one of the most beautiful looking blogs I have seen to date. Keep up the great work!

    Lisa

  45. April 6 May, 2013 at 9:45 pm #

    I made these tonight as we are doing Paleo as of May 1st and I didn’t tell them what it was made from and made them try first and tell me what they thought. Husband thought it tasted like eggs :(, but he did like it. Daughter didn’t like it but she is a picky 4 year old, until we let her put honey on hers cause she ate all the meat off of it. We had it with chicken, onion, and bell pepper with some guacamole. They were really small, so wasn’t sure if I should have spread them out more on the pan or what but I would say no more than 3″ round so didn’t hold much. Not sure if I did something wrong or not. It wasn’t a bad alternative and liked it better than the other Paleo tortillas I tried. Will be a good thing to have when I am feeling like I did today and need “bread”.

  46. Sara R 7 May, 2013 at 1:31 pm #

    I had success also baking these as rolls. 1/4 cup of “dough” in each each muffin cup. Thanks for the idea!

  47. Tiara 7 May, 2013 at 10:36 pm #

    How do you use to grate the cauliflower up that small?

    • Slim Palate 8 May, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

      Food Processor. I use this one.

  48. Heather @ Life, Gluten Free 9 May, 2013 at 3:08 pm #

    these look fantastic! we love cauliflower “rice.” we can’t have eggs though, so I’ll have to see if I can make these somehow without them. maybe if I add some coconut flour.

  49. Olga 11 May, 2013 at 6:18 pm #

    OMG… these turned out amazinggggggggggggggggggg

  50. GiGi Eats Celebrities 11 May, 2013 at 9:55 pm #

    Those are DEFINITELY something I want to sink my teeth into!

  51. Maddie 13 May, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

    I tried making these today and followed the recipe exactly, but they came out looking and tasting just like a cauliflower omelet :( You said they don’t taste eggy or like cauliflower to you, so I was wondering if you had any ideas of what could have gone wrong?

  52. Gabrielle 14 May, 2013 at 3:21 pm #

    Made these and they are delicious! Just wondering if you had the nutritional breakdown?

    • Slim Palate 14 May, 2013 at 8:56 pm #

      Sorry I don’t, I don’t count calories or anything and never did so I don’t put them up. I’d imagine these would be pretty low though since they’re made with cauliflower and egg only.

  53. Raelene 15 May, 2013 at 1:15 am #

    I was just wondering if anyone had tried making a whole bunch and freezeing them. Because I will ne tho only one in my family usuing the probly and wanted to know h. They would hold up afterwards.

  54. Bella 16 May, 2013 at 7:57 am #

    Turned out amazing! I made fish tacos for dinner the other night and my bf said he liked them better than the corn ones :).

  55. Latecia 19 May, 2013 at 5:30 pm #

    I just made these and was very skeptical at first but was dying for something to satisfy my grain craving. WOW these are soooo delicious! The juicer tip is such a great idea too! I fried them in coconut oil after baking them and it took it up an extra notch. Definitely worth the prep and effort! Will be making a bigger batch next time so I can just leave it in the fridge and fry or bake up whenever I want some more! Was a hit with my nephew and hubby too! I made halibut tostadas with kale slaw and garnished it with some lemon and Tapatio..perfect! One question I do have is what could I do to make these more pliable? I ended up eating them as tostadas because they wouldn’t bend without crumbling?

    • Slim Palate 19 May, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

      Hi Latecia, I’m glad you liked the. I think they didn’t turn out right because you didn’t follow my recipe and you did it almost completely differently than the way I did. It makes a huge difference when you rice the cauliflower into coarser chunks and squeeze the moisture out after steaming it. Plus you fried them in an oil after baking them which might also affect the texture negatively.

      • Latecia 19 May, 2013 at 11:40 pm #

        Oh I followed the recipe exact except for the frying part at the end (by frying I mean I oiled my skillet with coconut oil and fried it lightly like suggested) but the tortillas were already crumbly while baking in the oven. I’m wondering if maybe I ground the cauliflower too much? I need to make another batch and not grind it down so fine, maybe it will work better? Either way these are a big hit! :)

        • Julie 20 May, 2013 at 6:40 am #

          I put some bacon grease in my pan when I fry them and they turn out great – no crumbling. For me, the crumbling usually results from not getting enough water out – but that seems unlikely since you used a juicer!

  56. Emily 25 May, 2013 at 9:18 pm #

    Hi,

    Just wondering how many carbs are in each wrap?

    Thanks

    • Slim Palate 26 May, 2013 at 10:03 am #

      Hi Emily, I don’t do the nutritional calculations for any of my recipes but I would imagine that they are incredibly low.

        I’m trying to change everyones diet, again! Now, I’m suppose to go Gluten Free…(stomach issues not celiac.) Finding things that DH and DD are willing to eat, also; is quite the challenge.

        Thanks for posting this recipe and the steps. I only made 4 tonight,DD liked them and so did her friend that is staying the night. Winner recipe!!

        I was really worried because DD complained about the “SMELL” as soon as I started to rice the cauliflower. I did have an issue with them sticking to the parchment paper (I don’t know which side to put up or if it even matters) so they were nice looking on 1 side and rough and dry looking on the other.

        Had a bit of a glitch while making them…had to let the mix sit after adding the egg, because a storm came thru and we ran to cover the chicken coop that ended up being totally flooded so we grabbed chickens and put them in the garage…crazy! Anyhow, once I got back to the kitchen the mix wasn’t soupy…kinda a thick pancake or waffle texture.

        I orignally was gonna skip the baking step, but did it anyhow..thinking it may have been better to skip the baking with the mixture I ended up with. Needless to say this came out awesome and is my very first GF recipe!!! WINNER WINNER WINNER….can’t say that enough.

    • oceantbear 27 May, 2013 at 12:29 am #

      In Calori King it says Cauliflower had 15 carbs for 10 oz…(about 1/2 a head) there are 0 (none) in Eggs..

      So the way I figure it is: 8oz=1C we use 2c in this recipe, so knock off a bit, say call it 12 carbs per cup. This will give ya roughly 24 carbs in the recipe. Divide that by how ever many you make. If you get 6 then there are only 4 carbs per tortilla/crepe/wrap what ever you call these.

      I’m diabetic and according to these number I could eat the whole thing!! And still not hit my meal limit in carbs.

    I just bought cauliflower to try cauliflower rice. I think I will use half of it for this tortillas. Sounds like a brilliant idea :-)

  58. Marilyn 28 May, 2013 at 12:47 pm #

    Sounds awesome and I’m really psyched to try it!! Does anyone have a good suggestion to replace the yolk? I’m allowed whites but not yolks because of food allergies (in addition to needing to be GF). Also, why couldn’t you just cook them in a pan like a pancake? Why bake first? Thanks!

    • Slim Palate 28 May, 2013 at 4:46 pm #

      I think 4 egg whites should work. And the reasoning behind baking first is to keep them from falling apart, they set in the oven to be browned in the pan. I have had trouble with them falling apart after putting them straight in the pan but I might try some more testing with that later. Good luck!

    • Rachel 12 June, 2014 at 8:41 am #

      Did you make them with Egg Whites? I’m going to try to make them tomorrow and I’m curious how they came out.

  59. Courtney 29 May, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    Loved them! Made them to eat with chicken tikka masala. Called them naan, instead of tortillas. Brilliant, just brilliant. Thanks.

    • Slim Palate 29 May, 2013 at 7:24 pm #

      I like the way you think Courtney!

  60. mele 3 June, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

    I do not eat eggs. What can I sub it with? Thanks.

    • Slim Palate 3 June, 2013 at 8:13 pm #

      Sorry no egg substitutions. As far as I know it looks as if this would only work with eggs. Again I’m very sorry about that.

  61. Kristen 4 June, 2013 at 8:19 am #

    These are awesome! Thanks so much!!!!

  62. M3lly 6 June, 2013 at 4:53 am #

    yummo!! just tried them tonight and they are a winner. Thank you, i did add a little almond flour to the mixture and it was perfect. Beautiful and moist, will definitely be making this again :)

  63. Monique 6 June, 2013 at 10:53 am #

    Question: Why do they have to be baked first before frying? It seems that the steaming in the microwave should be sufficient, then fry? I made them and they are delicious, but didn’t think to try one without baking to see how it would turn out.

    • Slim Palate 6 June, 2013 at 11:35 am #

      To be honest, you don’t “have” to bake them first and they will turn out just fine, but I noticed that when you bake them first they hold together much better than just putting the batter straight in the pan.

      • Monique 6 June, 2013 at 11:54 am #

        Ah! thank you for that. I am sure that you are right. Next time I make them I will try one without baking. They seem so very versatile, and they are definitely best right after frying them. I am always amazed what we can do with food. When my friends ask what I am doing, I tell them that I am playing with food :-) Converting ingredients into something delicious is always cathartic.

  64. Karen 6 June, 2013 at 11:28 am #

    Tried these today. They turned out great. I thought next time I might go with just the egg whites to see if they are as good. I had mine with some middle eastern style food and they were perfect.

    • Rachel 12 June, 2014 at 8:42 am #

      Did you try this (with just egg whites)? I’m curious how they compare.

    • yaya 8 September, 2014 at 10:41 am #

      Going to use them for enchiladas, I cannot wait

      • mario 19 September, 2014 at 8:12 pm #

        How did they work in enchiladas?

  65. emiley 9 June, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

    do you have something with the nutrician facts

    • Monique 12 June, 2013 at 9:08 pm #

      Emiley, since the recipe has only cauliflower and eggs, you might want to google those and figure out what you need to know that way.

  66. Becca 9 June, 2013 at 7:45 pm #

    I just pulled mine out of the oven they seem to be more like fluffy pancakes :/ is the califlower rice to small? Or Are the tortillas to thick? I spread the mixture evenly between 6. Any suggestions?

    • Slim Palate 9 June, 2013 at 9:55 pm #

      I honestly have no idea what went wrong Becca, sorry they didn’t turn out.

    • Lisette 29 July, 2013 at 6:49 pm #

      You probably didn’t spread them thin enough.

  67. Annika 11 June, 2013 at 1:37 pm #

    Holy moly! Found this recipe today and had to of course try them immediately! Sweet jesus, they were absolutely excellent! Thank you so much! We’ve been making cauliflower pizza crust, but missed Mexican food in our paleo diet. This changes EVERYTHING!!! Woohoo!

  68. Monique 12 June, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

    I have been trying to figure out how I could flavor those pancakes to mask the “cauliflowery” taste, and I am thinking to add Indian spices to it to kind of make it like naan bread, like garlic, garam masala, cilantro, or even curry powder. I think the texture would be perfect for that. Then have it with an Indian meat dish. I have already used them as hamburger buns and a base for almond butter. These things have quickly become a staple for me.

    • Annika 13 June, 2013 at 6:50 am #

      Monique, I didn’t detect a cauliflower taste at all, but I was also thinking about perhaps adding garlic powder and use them as gyro wraps. Last night I made another (triple) batch and made grilled cheese sandwiches to go with the chicken soup. That was spectacular as well. Tonight we’re wrapping bacon wrapped bratwurst in the few that are left :).

      I don’t think there’s any limit to the variations with these culinary wonders.

      • Monique 13 June, 2013 at 8:52 am #

        Oh yum! I know, this is as close to bread as I have come so far, and they are so easy to make. I have to try the grilled cheese, sounds delicious, I was even thinking of mixing cheese into the batter and baking them that way.

    • Anne 9 February, 2014 at 2:36 am #

      Flavor the mix by steaming sliced garlic with the cauliflower to eliminate the “cauliflower” taste…Flavor the above mix with chives/caramelized onions/or bacon for savory or caramelized apple/curried raisins/or cinnamon dusted grilled peaches for “sweet crepe” just before your put in oven……Take a cookie sheet and put parchment on it…brush with ghee…fill the cookie sheet with thin mix….when turning just put ghee’d parchment paper on top and flip whole sheet and peel off the old (first used) parchment to cook on the other side….cut after baking to make square tortillas (go outside of the “round” to the box or square)

      Another idea…has anyone used a waffle maker with this recipe?

        Another idea…has anyone used a waffle maker with this recipe?

        Will be making a variation of this recipe in the morning for eggs benedict…wished I had not eaten the last of my home (no sugar-I am on day 29 of Whole 30) made gravelox for lunch today!

  69. Kate 13 June, 2013 at 8:37 pm #

    Can you give me the nutritional information for these? Calorie content, etc.? Thanks!

  70. Anne A 14 June, 2013 at 4:59 pm #

    I just made a batch of these using the exact recipe above (including the microwave!) and they came out great! I had some left over steak from dinner last night, which I chopped up and put onto one of these with some homemade guacamole, gave it to my 14 year-old son and he loved it! He didn’t know he was eating a cauliflower tortilla.

    I even took a picture of them and posted it on my blog!

    Love your blog. Tell your mom that you’re inspiring this 52 year-old mom on her journey to weight loss and better health. She should be proud. :)

  71. Hope 16 June, 2013 at 2:46 pm #

    Could you use eggbeaters??

  72. Anu 18 June, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

    I used the juicer method (genius props to Adam) and then microwaved the cauliflower per your directions and followed the rest of the recipe. This is delicious, has no eggy taste and the texture is…wait for it, flatbread like. Honestly, huge kudos Mr. SlimPalate. I rarely like the subs everyone is raving about.

    Incidentally, I am not paleo as I do not cut out legumes and low fat dairy. Just grains.

  73. Hannah 23 June, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    I wanted something to spread almond butter on so I tried theses but a bit differently. I added cinnamon and dried stevia . Hot out of the oven there was a slightly strange flavor . I put them in the fridge and pulled them out a few days later. The strange flavor was gone and they were great. I would never thought of maple almond butter and cauliflower together but this could easily be a take for lunch favorite. Thanks!

  74. Holly 30 June, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

    Felt like a lot of work to make just 6 tortillas…. I think I will double the recipe next time. They were delicious, though! My toddler even ate one made as a cheese quesadilla. Any recipe that gets cauliflower into my child’s stomach without a fight will definitely be reapeated many times!

  75. Tim 2 July, 2013 at 11:26 am #

    I tried the shortcut by the person who skipped removing the excess water. According to them they blended everything and panfried them and they turned out. I unfortunately tired and failed miserably. Will try the way suggested by the author.

  76. Sherry in Union, KY 3 July, 2013 at 5:33 am #

    I just started Phase 3 of the hCG diet today, so I made these yesterday in anticipation of my first breakfast in over a month. I was skeptical, but the tortillas turned out to be an outstanding substitute for toast in the following recipe: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/quick-recipes/2011/05/scrambled-eggs-avocado-and-smoked-salmon-on-toast Thanks so much for this great idea. I cannot have sugar or starch for the next three weeks, so these tortillas might just save me.

  77. m 6 July, 2013 at 10:59 pm #

    These are yummy! A great snack or alternative to plain eggs for breakfast. However, I wouldn’t exactly call them a tortilla…they can fall apart in a couple of pieces so that you can’t exactly hold anything in them. I’d call them a patty…a healthy, yummy patty!!

    • Slim Palate 7 July, 2013 at 6:22 pm #

      It sounds like you didn’t squeeze enough water out because mine hold together really really well.

  78. Cate 12 July, 2013 at 10:35 am #

    Going to try this with ground flaxseed and water as a substitute for the egg. I love eggs, but my two year old son is allergic, so we have to find good alternatives for many things with eggs.

    Not sure if you have any other good ideas for substitutions, but I’d love to hear them! I made your Chocolate Chip Cookies last night and they were BETTER than my grandma’s cookies, which to me is the ultimate chocolate chip cookie. Keep up the great work – we love your site!

  79. Nicole 18 July, 2013 at 2:05 pm #

    Just made these and they were delicious – thanks for posting!

  80. Carolyn 20 July, 2013 at 12:05 pm #

    I HAVE to try making these!!!

  81. Joy 21 July, 2013 at 12:27 pm #

    Can you make extra and freeze them? Also, how long would you suggest keeping them in the fridge before consuming them? Thanks :)

  82. Samantha 27 July, 2013 at 9:57 am #

    OMG. My mother in law and I are making these today! I plan to use mine for fajitas, and for paleo pizzas (no cheese, of course!). I hope they turn out as good as your did!
    Thank you!

  83. Anna J McIntyre 28 July, 2013 at 4:05 pm #

    WOW, these were amazing! I really expected a heavy cauliflower taste – but it didn’t taste like cauliflower at all. It tasted like a fluffy, soft homemade tortilla – more a corn consistency. I did have a problem with sticking on the parchment paper, but I suspect it was the paper brand. I intend to use a better quality paper the next time I make them. I would also like a larger tortilla, so the next time I make them, I will try making three instead of six tortillas from one batch.

    I gave my mother a taco made with one – she is always a tough critic – and she really liked it. My husband grabbed one and ate it plain, and wasn’t thrilled, but I don’t think these are for eating solo. They taste great stuffed with the taco fixings! Thanks for the great recipe.

  84. Lisette 29 July, 2013 at 6:41 pm #

    JUST made these…the directions were spot on, came out perfectly. This recipe feeds one very hungry person, so I’d double it for 2. Was a nice alternative to wheat wraps. Next time I’ll make a little bit thinner and larger (4 instead of 6). Yummy!

  85. Anna J McIntyre 31 July, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

    I made them again tonight. Definitely don ‘t use discount parchment paper. Tonight I used Reynolds’s parchment, and they didn’t stick at all!! I also made them larger, about the size of corn tortillas. The first time I made these they stuck because of the discount parchment paper I used. A better paper made all the difference!

    Another thing I did different — I made a double batch, 4 cups – and microwaved 3 minutes each time. To make it easier to squeeze out the water, I put my towel over a screen sifter, added the cauliflower right out of the microwave, and rinsed with cold water to cool down. Took longer to squeeze out, but was much easier since it wasn’t hot.

    They turned out great! Thanks again.

  86. Kim 11 August, 2013 at 2:03 pm #

    They look great, but do they have a heavy “egg” flavor?

    • Slim Palate 11 August, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

      I don’t think they do and I haven’t received too many comments about them being eggy.

  87. Kat 12 August, 2013 at 2:28 pm #

    I don’t use the microwave so I boil the cauliflower and turns out great. I do however find that this recipe in no way yields 6-7 tortillas that are of a decent size, I just manage to get 3 out of them and I make them about 5 – 5.5 inches in diameter. They do come out delish though :)

    • Slim Palate 12 August, 2013 at 7:20 pm #

      I think it might be because you made them too large or because you boiled the cauliflower it makes 6 for me every time.

  88. Laura 15 August, 2013 at 6:58 am #

    Haven’t even tried these yet but cannot WAIT! Thanks so much for experimenting and coming up with this very simply and healthy recipe. I try to avoid carbs, dairy and sugar, and all the “gluten free” things in the supermarkets still have too many carbs for my liking. Not to mention the prices! So I can see these becoming my favorite thing to make and keep on hand for when I get the hankering to have a wrap or “sandwich.”

  89. Stephanie 16 August, 2013 at 1:17 am #

    Could you make these with egg white instead of the whole egg? I’m on a diet where I can have egg white but not whole eggs.

    • Slim Palate 17 August, 2013 at 11:47 am #

      I don’t see why not but you will probably have to double the amount. Like maybe 4 egg whites but I’m not sure exactly how many as I’ve never tried it.

  90. Low Carbe Diem 20 August, 2013 at 12:43 pm #

    Excellent bread substitute recipe! Glad I saw this before I went shopping. And another great, low carb use for cauliflower! Thank you.

  91. Josie 24 August, 2013 at 8:49 pm #

    Holy crap, I was skeptical but these freaking work! I almost like them more than regular tortillas for little soft tacos! My mouth still has the warm burn of tapatio my plate is clean. Easy, simple ingredients, simple prep while cooking filling, it’s a winner.

  92. Kevin 25 August, 2013 at 4:48 pm #

    These look delicious! I am definitely making these, already made up my mind! But I was curious, if you had experimented with just using a griddle or cooking these on the stove without using the oven?

    I was thinking it might cut-back on the puffiness, but I wanted to ask you first :) I’m all for food-based experiments, but I wanted a second opinion haha.

    – Kev

    • Slim Palate 26 August, 2013 at 12:40 pm #

      I’ve never done it before but I’m afraid they would work if you used enough oil so they don’t stick.

  93. Josée 2 September, 2013 at 9:28 am #

    Can the cauliflower tortillas be made ahead of time and frozen for later use?

    • Slim Palate 3 September, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

      They refrigerate wonderfully so I don’t see why they couldn’t be frozen although I’ve never tried. I would say most likely they would freeze fine.

  94. Effie 5 September, 2013 at 1:47 am #

    Hello! Great recipe! I’m just wondering if and how you can store the tortillas?

    Thanks,

    Effie

    • Slim Palate 5 September, 2013 at 6:57 am #

      They last great in the fridge. About 4-6 days.

  97. Lynn 30 September, 2013 at 10:39 am #

    I made these twice and adored them! But they did take me quite a while to make and I would like to break the process up. Thanks for the recipe.

    Do you think it would be possible to blanch the riced cauliflower, then freeze it in 2 cup batches? Then maybe just microwave it straight out of the freezer and make the tortillas per the instructions.

    Lynn

    • Slim Palate 30 September, 2013 at 12:51 pm #

      I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. You could also make a bunch in advance and freeze them I bet. Let me know how it goes if you try it and I’ll update the recipe with that as a note.

      • Brenda 24 January, 2014 at 12:11 am #

        Can you make them ahead of time and just freeze them then pull them out if the freezer to defrost day of then just toast them up by pan frying them

  98. Louise Moore 30 September, 2013 at 8:09 pm #

    Question: if you’re going to put them in a pan to crisp up anyway, could you just cook them like a pancake to begin with and dispense with the “oven” part?

    • Slim Palate 30 September, 2013 at 8:10 pm #

      It won’t produce the same results.

  99. Jamie 10 October, 2013 at 7:40 am #

    Can egg whites be used instead of whole eggs? I know in some recipes it matters and the entire thing will fall apart without the egg yolk but in others it works.

    • Slim Palate 12 October, 2013 at 12:29 pm #

      I have never tested it with egg whites but I don’t see why not. You might have to double the amount of eggs though.

  100. Tessa 13 October, 2013 at 2:14 am #

    My sis and I just made this as an alternative to taco shells. It worked splendidly.
    I saw in the picture that the tortillas were quite small. So I doubled the recipe intending to make tortillas closer to the size of ‘soft taco shells’. The yield was six large, functional tortillas. They did not threaten to break when heaped with the usual taco menu items. Don’t be afraid to spread these as thinly on the tray as you can.

    Since we don’t have a MICROWAVE we GRILLED the riced coli (using alfoil as a plate in the grill). We were too lazy to squeeze any moisture from the ‘rice,’ believing the grill had dried it out adequately. Our theory turned out correct – our tortillas were perfect.

    I was worried that the texture might be very eggy, but my fears were debunked. Not a bread texture, but not very eggy either.
    The flavour screamed cauliflower. I’m sitting here now trying to think of how to dilute the taste (if you love cauli you’ll love this!). Maybe broccoli would work! Maybe diluting the cauli rice with almond, coconut or flax meal would be worth the extra calories. Maybe even exclusively blended pumpkin and eggs could work. Who knows!

    The downside to this was the time it took to make.

      It might have tasted more on the cauliflower side because you grilled it and didn’t drain it. Steaming it makes the cauliflower much more mild in taste and the addition of squeezing the additional water I feel squeezes some of the flavor out. Regardless I’m very glad that you still liked them.

      • Tessa 17 October, 2013 at 12:19 am #

        That certainly seems plausible. I’ll have to not be so lazy next time!
        Thanks :)

  101. Naomi 24 October, 2013 at 5:05 pm #

    Can frozen cauliflower be used? I am new to making things with this veggie :) Whould I defrost is first? microwave it then “rice” it? I know whole fresh food is better, but frozen is cheaper ;) at least it is here!

  102. Lindsey 25 October, 2013 at 6:35 pm #

    Holy cow Microwave people!! Who cares, has anyone tried the cauliflower tortillas? Isn’t that what the comments are for?

    I will make them and let everyone here know how amazing they are !!

    • Candice 15 November, 2013 at 4:07 pm #

      Lol! Right!!

      Please let us know how the tortillas come out!!

  103. April 11 November, 2013 at 8:35 pm #

    These look amazing and I can’t wait to try them! I was wondering if they keep in the fridge very well and if so how long?

  104. Candice 15 November, 2013 at 4:06 pm #

    Now for the ingredients, it list 3/4 of a head of cauliflower or 2 cups riced and packed. Is the two cups rice and packed be measured before you microwave and drain or after? I know after you microwave and drain, the amount of cauliflower will go down a bit.

  105. Melva 15 November, 2013 at 6:44 pm #

    Thanks for posting this recipe. I will be trying it tomorrow. I was hoping to get some good info on the recipe by reading the comments but sadly it was a debate on microwaves. Wow, seems a little crazy and unnecessary. Anyway, I’m excited to try them and fool my husband.

  106. Claire from Australa 17 November, 2013 at 3:40 am #

    just made these and i am a self-confessed BAD cook – they turned out wonderful! i can see them becoming a staple in our house to replace anything bread or ricey that we have been having previously.

    thank you for a great post and recipe and photos

    bookmarking you now!

  107. Lisa 6 December, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

    Hi! I have an egg allergy, among a long list of food allergies, and was wondering if anyone has tried this with the chia or flax egg replacement method?

  108. Silverthorn 7 December, 2013 at 7:25 pm #

    Just discovered I’m gluten intolerant & can’t eat any carbs either… (joy).. so was really pleased to find this recipe.

    We skipped the microwave step because we FORGOT.. and just added more riced cauliflower to make it less wet. They turned out great!

    Also found rather than making 6 circles, it was easier to press the mixture into a rectangular tin (lined with greaseproof paper) and then cut them into slices :)

    Thanks for the fab idea!!

  109. Sherri @The Well Floured Kitchen 3 January, 2014 at 10:36 pm #

    These look delicious, and easy. I’ve been wanting to try something like this, have a few non cauliflower loving family members to convert :) Pinned!

  110. Sabrina 4 January, 2014 at 7:50 am #

    Love this recipe and would like to try it, however, I am a vegan and am wondering if it would work with powdered egg replacement or flax eggs? Have you tried that?

    • Slim Palate 4 January, 2014 at 12:04 pm #

      I don’t know if it would as I’ve never attempted it with anything but eggs.

  111. foodgirldc 4 January, 2014 at 11:51 am #

    Thank you for posting the recipe and thank you also to those that posted an alternative to the microwave. I don’t have one and it isn’t because I fear it, my apartment simply didn’t come with one, I’m too cheap to buy one, and I don’t want to lose the counter space.

    This is a great recipe! I’ve made them a couple of times but I always have an issue. I follow the recipe to a T. My “shells” always stick it the paper when I try to take them off. Any suggestions? I did use wax paper, instead of parchment paper. Does that make a difference?

    • Slim Palate 24 January, 2014 at 9:19 am #

      Yes it does make a difference, parchment is a completely different material. I recommend you try it with parchment next time.

      • Sara 24 January, 2014 at 12:45 pm #

        That’s what I figured after I googled the difference between the twitter! Oops. Thanks! It’s such an awesome recipe! I can’t wait to make them right next time!

        • Ayana 25 January, 2014 at 2:53 pm #

          Hi! I was wondering if these freeze well?

          • Slim Palate 26 January, 2014 at 8:45 am #

            They refrigerate well but I have no experience with freezing them. I would imagine that they freeze fine.

  113. Eileen @ Everyone Eats Right 25 January, 2014 at 5:12 pm #

    This recipe worked well. I didn’t cook the cauli, just riced and then squeezed out the moisture. I served quartered rounds with pesto and pate as an appetizer. My friends liked them and were surprised when I told them they were made with cauliflower. Good work!

  114. Stephanie 27 January, 2014 at 2:17 pm #

    Can you make these ahead of time?

    • Slim Palate 27 January, 2014 at 10:10 pm #

      They refrigerate great so I would imagine that you could certainly make these 1-3 days ahead of time. I recommend saving the browning for when you’re ready to serve them though.

  115. Jesska 29 January, 2014 at 8:56 am #

    I wish I did have enough time to try a completely “all around healthy” dish but some folks just have to whip something out and eat in an hour or less. Also, when making a raw, vegan, or paleo dish I hope it sets well in the refrigerator ( I like to play around with my “genre” of foods). I am pretty new to cooking, as well. So the microwave is much easier to use than risking steaming something and it end up falling apart. HAHAHA.

    But besides the fact that some dislike the microwave… I can not wait to try this out. It looks easy and I see so many recipes using cauliflower for pizza crust even. :) Thank you very much. OH!!! and before I forget… how well do these stay in the fridge?
    I made garbanzo bean brownies which were terrific but they ended up getting a little moist in the container throughout the day.

    • Slim Palate 29 January, 2014 at 2:56 pm #

      They do great in the refrigerator for a few days.

  116. Doug 29 January, 2014 at 1:47 pm #

    The Paleolithic period, the basis for the Paleo diet, ended around 10,000 years ago. Cauliflower was first grown around 2,000 years ago in Asia Minor and the Mediterranean, adapted from a wild cabbage. And while Cauliflower is hardly the worst among them, the items we’re now calling “Paleo” are taking the idea in the direction of every other fad diet… out of control.

  117. Nancy 13 February, 2014 at 11:45 am #

    These should never be eaten alone. Not a good taste in my mouth. They should be on the bottom of something yummy….avocado…salsa…eggs…beans…just not alone!!!

    • Lisa 23 March, 2014 at 5:55 pm #

      They taste like eggs. Makes me wonder if the caulflower is even necessary. They’re basically little disks of egg you can put stuff on. But for the author to say they don’t taste “eggy” I can’t figure out what she did differently. Mine tasted like egg and nothing else.

  118. Elisa B. Bennett 13 February, 2014 at 10:23 pm #

    I am just learning Paleo and alkaline recipes and protocols. Is this recipe alkaline?

    Thanks your page looks so yummy!

    Elisa

  119. Carina 14 February, 2014 at 8:34 am #

    Has anyone tried making these with just egg whites or flax eggs?

  120. Terry 20 February, 2014 at 2:36 am #

    Hi, just wanted to let you know that i’ve tried these amazing tortillas and i loved them!
    I’ve an italian and english foodblog and I posted them here
    http://crumpetsandco.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/tortillas-di-cavolfiore-cauliflower-tortillas/

    Thank you very much for this smart recipe! :)

    Terry

  121. Rosa 23 February, 2014 at 5:37 pm #

    Looking at other recipes I added some parmesan and herbs (oregano, basil, tarragon) and it turned out very good.
    The only issue is that I cannot really flip the tortillas after 10 mins. The kinda stick to the sheet. Any advice on that?
    Thank you for the simple recipe :)

    • Slim Palate 25 February, 2014 at 9:57 am #

      Did you put them on parchment paper? They don’t stick for me.

  122. Niyama 23 February, 2014 at 11:16 pm #

    For those wanting an egg replacement, perhaps soaked (overnight) chia seeds will work (instead of flax seeds).
    First I’ll try it with eggs and then I’ll try with chia seeds.
    Looking forward.

  123. Nicky 27 February, 2014 at 7:41 pm #

    These were super!!! Having grown up in Mexico I wasn’t sure these would do the trick. I was pleasantly surprised. My husband (who also grew up in Mexico) really liked them as did my 5 year old son. In fact the little guy said I needed to make more. Great recipe! I was concerned they may taste eggy but they didn’t. Excellent for tacos as they hold their shape and don’t fall apart. YUM!

  124. Eszter Baldavári 2 March, 2014 at 10:43 am #

    Hey, Joshua,
    Thank you for this recipe. I have a special illness and I can only use ingredients like in your recipes, so those are very useful for me. In addition, I own a tiny gastro shop in Budapest with my siblings, where many people ask me about healthy food. I’ve tried some of these recipes, so I will recommend them and your site to them in the future.
    I hope that your book will be available soon in Hungary.
    Keep it up! :)

  125. Torrey 7 March, 2014 at 11:25 am #

    Seriously? A recipe for cauliflower tortillas stirs a debate about the safety of microwaves? Ridiculous.

  126. Danny 22 March, 2014 at 9:01 am #

    This is amazing! My friend just pinned this to me. I love your blog! Keep up all the inspiring work. I adore your recipes.

    Danny :)

  127. Kel 24 March, 2014 at 12:37 pm #

    Hi, I tried to skim through most comments, but I’m just wondering if these can be made ahead & frozen . . . so I just have to use one at a time, as needed?

    Thanks for any advice! I can’t wait to try these out!

    • Slim Palate 25 March, 2014 at 2:31 pm #

      They should freeze just fine.

  128. Joe Burke 10 April, 2014 at 1:47 am #

    But seriously.
    This is so incredibly good.

    You sir are inspiring.
    + full of dank recipes!

    • Slim Palate 10 April, 2014 at 7:21 am #

      Thank you Joe! Maybe I should add a dankness level rating system instead of a starring one to my recipes.

  129. Denise 12 April, 2014 at 7:13 pm #

    Do you know if you can make them ahead and save for when you are ready to use them?

  130. Lowen 13 April, 2014 at 11:07 am #

    Just made these and used for huevos rancheros. Fantastic!!!!!

    Has anyone used them for enchiladas, chilaquiles, baked torta, quesadillas or nachos (can you deep fry after browning)?

  131. Lisa 14 April, 2014 at 9:33 pm #

    Would broccoli work?

    • Slim Palate 15 April, 2014 at 12:39 pm #

      No I don’t think broccoli would work, you have to use cauliflower for those to come out properly.

  132. Erica 16 April, 2014 at 8:25 am #

    Mine turned out like eggy-pancakes!! They weren’t tortilla like at all!! What did I do wrong?!

  133. Angela 20 April, 2014 at 11:02 am #

    Can these tortilla be made in advance and reheated? Thanks!

    • Slim Palate 20 April, 2014 at 8:17 pm #

      They certainly can, they reheat great.

  134. heidi 2 May, 2014 at 3:03 am #

    Do u think I could make these in bulk and freeze them, do think they would still b good ? If so at what stage might theybest be frozen? good

    • Slim Palate 2 May, 2014 at 6:27 pm #

      I have never frozen them before, although, they do incredibly well in the fridge so they might do just fine in the freezer.

    • Theresa 10 May, 2014 at 11:19 am #

      I would cool them after baking and freeze them. To use them, I would remove from freezer and thaw in microwave then brown them as suggested before use.

  135. I constantly spent my half an hour to read this web site’s content every day along with a cup of coffee.

  136. Arianna 8 May, 2014 at 6:19 am #

    I made these for the first time the other night, followed the recipe exactly. They were AMAZING! mine didn’t hold together quite as good as yours seem to, but despite that I was able to load them up with various things and they substituted the tortillas in taste beautifully! I didn’t find the process to be terribly involved…and good things take work!

  137. hilary 8 May, 2014 at 6:57 pm #

    You are amazing! I just happened upon your website and scrolled down all the comments. You are so generous with your time and expertise, and so very non-judgemental. I have book-marked your site….you have a new and rather passionate fan.

  138. Bree 15 May, 2014 at 4:11 pm #

    Just finished making these and I am SO pleased :) I am having a love affair with cauliflower and tortilla shells are one of my most missed food. Can’t wait to try with some other food combos! Thank you!

  139. paul 25 May, 2014 at 5:48 pm #

    what is the total carbs for this recipe

  140. Brenda 2 June, 2014 at 3:13 pm #

    I am new to this WOE, so you rice the cauliflower raw and then steam it or bake it?

    • Slim Palate 4 June, 2014 at 8:13 pm #

      You’ve got it!

  141. LLL 4 June, 2014 at 4:44 pm #

    I’m so happy I found this recipe, the other cauliflower ones I’ve tried never work correctly. I’m sorry to see all the crazy added posts about microwaves. I thought part of paleo was to go back to roots, when we didn’t use the gadgets of convenience that caused the health issues to start with, but to each their own choice, too bad it’s to argue with too much time on their hands. Anyway, I made mine without pre-cooking the cauliflour & it’s perfect. Thanks so much!

    • Buddy 11 July, 2014 at 4:18 pm #

      Paleolithic man didn’t have stoves, and certainly didn’t have cauliflower (it’s a relatively new cultivar “invented” after humans became agrarian). My point is: If it’s ok to eat things that are not Paleolithic (but still in the spirit of the diet), then it’s ok to use a cooking device that’s not Paleolithic (or if not, I hope you have a fire pit going in your back yard when it’s time to cook dinner. A modern stove (gas or electric), certainly didn’t exist back in the Paleolithic era.

  142. OMG – they look incredible. I’ll try them on weekend.

    thx for sharing!

  143. Azu 23 June, 2014 at 8:41 am #

    I have too been experimenting a lot with cauliflower. It’s fantastic! I don’t follow a paleo diet but I find some of the recipes to be delicious and super healthy. I will defintily try this tortillas! Can’t wait!

  144. ellen bay 14 July, 2014 at 2:23 pm #

    Hi. I’ve made these and they turn out well but they WERE a pain to make. Have you thought of putting the cauliflower into a juicer and then using the pulp? I guess if it were too dry you could always add back some of the liquid. It just seems like it would be easier than processing, cooking, cooling, and wringing. If I try it, I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the idea, though.

  145. Monique 5 August, 2014 at 3:37 pm #

    Can I freeze them?

  146. Kacie 5 August, 2014 at 6:27 pm #

    I made the cauliflower tortillas and turned out great! I put avocado, goat cheese, spinach leaves and red onion in them so good!!!!! Thanks for the recipe!!!!!!

  147. Kate 12 August, 2014 at 9:59 am #

    Could you just use oil or shortening instead of eggs?

    • Slim Palate 14 August, 2014 at 11:26 am #

      I’m afraid not.

  148. Kayt 21 August, 2014 at 8:23 am #

    These look really yummy and versatile. However, I do not own a microwave. Do you have a suggestion for alternative cooking?

  149. Tracy Walker 21 August, 2014 at 5:47 pm #

    I tried this recipe and was very pleased with the result. They’re delicious. I’m wondering how many tortillas you normally get from 2 cups of riced Cauliflower. I got three small ones (about 5″ diameter and 3/8″ thick). I would also like to know what the calorie count would be for the entire recipe.

  150. Jeri 2 September, 2014 at 12:52 pm #

    I’ve been on a pretty strict diet plan and have had a hard time getting in the 4 cups of veggies a day that I’m supposed to eat. In addition, I missed having bread at lunch for sandwiches. That is, until I discovered cauliflower wraps. I’ve used the same recipe except I add garlic and dill to the recipe. They make a delicious roll up with lunch meat, lettuce, mustard and pickle.

  151. Moshe 10 September, 2014 at 3:07 pm #

    I’m new to this site! I can’t wait to try these. I have heard of making mashed “potatoes” with cauliflower. I have never heard of riced cauliflower. What is riced? Thank you for your generous time to give us a healthy alternative.

  152. andrew Hodge 15 September, 2014 at 10:10 pm #

    I steam the riced cauli then I put it in a tea towel and press the water out using a cheese press I picked up at an old junk shop. It comes out like masa flour. I would never use a microwave, there to many if’s and buts. Anyway a cheese press is a great addition to the paleos kitchen for squeezing the water out of veges.

  153. Lily 16 September, 2014 at 9:49 pm #

    Does anyone knew a way to create these amazing tortillas with something other than eggs?

    This recipe looks and sounds delicious. I have been desperately looking for recipes that fit my current dietary restrictions which are: vegan, low histamine, & gluten-free. I have insane food allergies amongst other health problems (asthma). I can eat any fresh vegetables except tomato, pumpkin, eggplant, and spinach. If anyone could offer a suggestion I would be extremely grateful.

    Food is…hard for me. It scares me. I have seen my mother and brother almost die from food allergy induced anaphylaxis. I just want to eat nice meal with those I care about. At holidays I usually just sit there sipping water. Everyone pressures me the entire time though it has gotten better (like having separate dairy-free mashed potatoes for my mother, brother, and I).

    I would love to be able to cook something delicious that I could share with all of my loved ones. I know everyone would love these tortillas but I have to figure out something to replace the eggs. Just thinking about these cooking in the oven gives me a warm happy feeling. :) I definitely think of cauliflower in a new way after reading this! Many, many thanks!
