Low-Carb Cauliflower Tortillas (Grain-Free!)

grain-free low-carb tortillas

A super easy cauliflower tortilla recipe using just 4 ingredients! These cauliflower wraps are very malleable and can bend without breaking, and make the perfect low-carb, gluten-free wrap option.

Up until recently, my go-to tortilla recipe was this one-ingredient lentil tortilla. But, since starting a low-carb high fat (LCHF) eating plan, I’ve really changed up the recipes I’d normally make.

Cauliflower is a vegetable I use much more of now. It’s so versatile and makes the perfect sub-in for so many recipes! It was so under-valued in my life before now.

Cauliflower will be our secret ingredient for these low-carb tortillas today, but if you want to mix things up from time to time, pumpkin or sweet potato work well, too, as the base for this recipe. They’re just a little higher in carbs.

No Need for Gluten, Gums or Thickeners

Now, this tortilla dough isn’t like your regular dough because it contains no gluten. Without the gluten which helps with binding, the dough isn’t as sturdy and so breaks apart very easily. You can use xanthan gum to help boost its hardiness, but I’ve found these tortillas are achievable without the addition of gums and thickeners, it just requires a little extra patience and very gentle hands. Psyllium husks will be our gluten-like binding agent today.

You need to be very careful and gentle when rolling out the dough to make these wraps. Just use gentle rolling actions to reduce the chance of breakage. Lifting, dusting, and turning the dough regularly will also help reduce ripping and/or tearing of the tortilla. You will need liberal amounts of coconut flour while dusting to keep the dough from sticking while it’s being rolled out.

Other than that, enjoy these cauliflower tortillas! They pair so well with this Roasted Zucchini Hummus.

They can be used the same way as regular wraps to make burritos, quesadillas, tacos and more!

Homemade Cauliflower Tortillas

Cauliflower wraps are a fantastic alternative to grain-based tortilla wraps.

Just something to note: These wraps won’t keep as long as traditional tortillas so it can be a good idea to freeze them and just defrost as needed.

Makes 6

Ingredients:

  • 1 head cauliflower, chopped (florets only)
  • 3 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic power (optional)
  • 5 tbsp psyllium husks
  • Coconut flour for dusting

To make:

  1. Steam or boil the cauliflower until it is cooked through and very soft.
  2. Drain as much of the excess liquid as possible, then place in a high speed blender or food processor and blend until a purée forms.
  3. Add the eggs, salt, garlic powder (if using), and psyllium husks to the blender or food processor and blend again until the mixture is well combined.
  4. Leave the mixture to stand for 10-15 minutes to allow it to thicken into a dough.
  5. Break the dough apart into six even balls and roll each ball out into a tortilla shape. You want to get the tortillas a thin as possible, dusting with coconut flour as necessary.
  6. Heat a large frying pan on medium heat and dry fry each tortilla (both sides) until slightly golden brown on the outside and cooked on the inside.
  7. Store the tortillas in the freezer and defrost before using.
  8. These tortillas can be used to make tacos, burritos, quesadillas, wraps, and more!
