Equipment

  • Baking paper
  • Food processor
  • Cheesecloth or thin dish towel
  • Medium bowl
  • Baking tray

Ingredients

  • 3/4 large head organic cauliflower (or two cups riced)
  • 2 large organic eggs (Vegans, sub flax eggs)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander or parsley 
  • 1/2 medium organic lime, juiced and zested
  • salt & pepper, to taste

All the above ingredients can be found both online and in our store located at 47 Maroubra Road, Maroubra. 

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C., and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Trim the cauliflower, cut it into small, uniform pieces, and pulse in a food processor in batches until you get a couscous-like consistency. The finely riced cauliflower should make about 2 cups packed.
  • Place the cauliflower in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 2 minutes, then stir and microwave again for another 2 minutes. If you don't use a microwave, a steamer works just as well.  Place the cauliflower in a fine cheesecloth or thin dishtowel and squeeze out as much liquid as possible, being careful not to burn yourself. Dishwashing gloves are suggested as it is very hot.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Add in cauliflower, coriander or parsley, lime, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. Use your hands to shape 6 small "tortillas" on the parchment 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 on 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.
