Have you ever wondered what cauliflower brownies would be like, well now is your chance? I love to find healthy alternatives to tried and tested recipes which have been used for years. Cauliflower is so often the replacement for the grain. It is such a versatile vegetable and will take on any flavour. It is my favourite vegetable and I use it often to replace the starchy mashed potato, instead of rice or couscous, mixed with other ingredients as a pizza base and now here it is as a tortilla.
Corn is hard for most people to digest but with the magic of cauliflower, these tortillas are a fabulous alternative.
15 min 25 min 40 min
3/4 medium head Cauliflower
2 large egg Egg
1/4 cup Cilantro (coriander) (or parsley)
1/2 whole lime – juice and zest
1 dash Black pepper
Preheat the oven to 180 deg C
Trim the cauliflower, small chunks & then steam them for 2-3 minutes so soft, but not mushy.
Let the cauliflower cool and then pulse it in a food processor in batches until you get a couscous-like consistency.
Place the cauliflower in fine cheesecloth or a thin dishtowel and squeeze out as much liquid as
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs (or chia egg for vegans). Add cauliflower, coriander, lime, sea salt, and black pepper.
Mix until well combined.
Use your hands to shape six small tortillas on baking paper.
Bake for 10 minutes, carefully flip each tortilla and return to the oven for an additional 5 to 7 minutes, or until completely set.
Place tortillas on a wire rack to cool slightly.
Heat a medium-sized skillet to medium.
Place a baked tortilla in the pan, pressing down slightly, and brown for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Tip: You can munch these by themselves, make quesadillas with them, or add some taco filling and fold it like a taco.
While I was putting this post together it got me thinking. Cauliflower is so versatile wouldn’t it work in decadent desserts and cakes? So I asked Mr Google and the selection, though not endless, was excellent. This was the one I picked out. Enjoy without guilt!
