I know what you are thinking. Dreamy creamy cauliflower tortillas is that even possible, to make tortillas from cauliflower? Yes it is and they are great. Why? Because these are a great substitute when you are gluten intolerant but also great when you are not gluten intolerant but like to try something different. How? Simple all you need is grated cauliflower and eggs. What do they taste like? These tortillas are like that cool kid on the block. I’m telling you, you will be amazed at the taste and so will the rest of your family. So what are we waiting for. Dreamy creamy cauliflower tortillas it is. Lets get started!
Do you remember when you were a kid and walk in the house thinking oh, oh it is cauliflower night? Just by walking through the front door you knew. The whole house was infused by the smell of cauliflower, that would stick around. I don’t know about you but it never really became my favorite dish. “Just eat it, this is very nutritious.” my mom would say and so I obeyed.
When I left home I did not eat cauliflower a lot. It was not on my go to list. Not until a couple of years ago I discovered that cauliflower is so much more versatile than just a vegetable to cook in water. It so easy to turn it into a mean cauliflower fried rice, upgrade a stir-fry or be a great sauce. So now it is a small step to create dreamy creamy cauliflower tortillas. The best part they not even taste like cauliflower at all. I think the texture slightly resembles corn tortillas but the taste can not be compared.
Start by grating the cauliflower extra fine, like fine grains of rice, in a food processor. Next you need to warm the cauliflower to make sure all of the moisture is getting out. You can choose to use the microwave but I know a lot of people or no fan of the micro so you can put it in a steamer or put the cauliflower in a non plastic sieve and put it on top of a pan with boiling water to steam.
When the heating/steaming is done put the cauliflower in a kitchen towel or cheesecloth and squeeze out all of the excess moisture. Warning! The moisture from the cauliflower can be very hot so be careful when twisting the moisture out.
Now all you have to do is add whisked eggs to the cauliflower and turn it into a creamy batter like consistency. Shape the tortillas on a baking tin and in the oven they go.
To give them a nice brown glow bake them in a hot pan or griddle without oil or butter. Keep a close watch because they brown easily. If you like you can add salt and pepper to taste. I totally forgot to use salt and pepper this time but frankly I didn’t miss it. Goes to show that it is all personal preference.
By the way, if you are wondering where I got the ultra cute wooden taco holder? These were a DIY project of my husband and you (or your hubby 😉) can make these as well.
