These tortillas are mind blowingly simple and the best ‘fake carb’ one could hope for while Banting! Enjoy and spread the word.
Carb free Tortillas or Cauli-wraps (Makes 6)
Cauli-wraps are another superb ‘fake carb’ for which we owe thanks to the cauliflower. They won’t keep as long as a standard tortilla so you’ll want to freeze them and defrost as needed.
500g cauliflower, cut into florets
4tbls psyllium husks
• Steam or boil the cauliflower until it is completely mushed
• Drain of any excess moisture then, using a stick blender or food processor, puree the cauliflower until smooth
• In a large mixing bowl or in a blender again, blend in the husks, eggs and salt and mix well
• Leave it to stand for 10 to 15 minutes to thicken into dough
• Break the dough into six balls and roll each one out into a tortilla shape. You could use coconut flour for dusting
• In a heavy based pan, dry fry each tortilla on a medium heat until nicely coloured on the inside and cooked in the middle
• You could also bake them in the oven but the edges do tend to dry out
Notes: You could substitute butternut or sweet potato in for cauliflower for the same, if not better, results. Just be aware that the carb content shoots up a fair amount.
Also makes a great pizza base!
