Cauliflower Tortillas

Bread is probably one of the top things I miss the most since starting the SCD. Luckily, there are a ton of SCD legal recipes online for pretty much anything I might be craving. A few weeks ago, I was in the mood for some soft tacos and so, I went on the hunt to find a good tortilla recipe. That’s when I came across this recipe for cauliflower tortillas. I also watched a separate YouTube video on it, which I found extremely helpful. For those of you who are more visual learners, the video will come in handy! Can we say genius?! I’ve experimented with cauliflower fried rice, cauliflower mash, and cauliflower crust pizza, all of which were a hit, and each time, I found it crazy how this vegetable can mirror the perfect substitute for bread and starchy carbs. So, when I found the recipe for cauliflower tortillas, I had no doubt the tortillas would taste fantastic.

One head of cauliflower made 5-6 tortillas. The only downside is that I felt it took quite a bit of time to prepare it all for so few tortillas. The plus side is that the tortillas tasted absolutely amazing, so amazing that no one would ever be able to know they were made out of cauliflower. They kind of tasted like corn tortillas but more flavorful. I should also mention that I spruced up the original recipe by adding oregano and thyme to it. You can feel free to add your favorite herbs to add as much flavor as you want. Also, word of advice: at the end when you’re browning your tortillas, make sure not to add any oil or cooking spray to the pan. The tortillas are already delicate, so I experienced adding any oil just made them more fragile. Just press them down lightly with a spatula to give them a nice golden color.

Here are how mine turned out:


The ones topped with feta cheese are my husband’s. I garnished each taco with cilantro and some chopped green onions. My husband’s exact words were that I outdid myself and that this meal is now one of his new favorites.

Happy eating! Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for sharing the recipe. I used to love tacos and tortillas before going paleo, but now I’m going to revisit my favorite foods. Plus I need more ground beef recipes!

    • Hi, Karl!

      Thanks for stopping by! I, too, missed tacos, which is why I went out on the hunt to look for a recipe like this. Next time I will need to make them with some ground beef; that sounds delicious. As for these tortillas, you are going to love them! Let me know how they turn out for you when you make them.
