We love these yummy bariatric friendly tortillas because they are delicious, they can be used for a variety of dishes and they are very bariatric friendly! Who knew eating cauliflower could be this good? Enjoy in confidence!
3/4 head cauliflower
2 large eggs
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Juice from 1/2 lime – add the zest too if you want more of a lime flavor
salt and pepper, to taste
*Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 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. 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, cilantro, 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.
