I’m not one to get on the Paleo and gluten free train, but like many, I’ve gained a good amount of weight over the holiday months that I’d like to lose. Being the Mexican food lover that I am, I NEED a good carb alternative to tortillas while I lose some weight and these Cauliflower Tortillas are where its at! So to help get the pounds off quickly, I’ve decided to dedicate this month to sharing healthy and great tasting food that will help you shed your winter coat!
Coincidentally, I was contacted Personal Trainer Food and invited to try out their 28 day RECON program and sent me 4 weeks supply of their food for me to help me on my weight loss journey. One of the major guidelines they provide for adding to the diet is no carbs/sugar, which being the carb and sugar lover that I am I immediately freaked out! So far it hasn’t been bad but I’ll update you on that later.
I found out quickly that there’s a TON of ways to use cauliflower as a replacement to certain types of breads, and I had to try my own version of cauliflower tortillas. Mixing in a blend of spices like cumin, smoked paprika and fresh cilantro I figured there was no way this was going to taste bad. I wasn’t wrong! ????
These tortillas hold up really well for street tacos, and it’s a really nice alternative to tortillas if you have a similar diet you’re on. If you just happen to be using the RECON program like myself, It is AMAZING with their adobo chicken, topped with a little mozzarella and my Pico De Gallo salsa. You can always use a grilled chicken recipe as well!
One of thing things you have to do to get this recipe to come out right is get the cauliflower dry as possible after steaming. Wring it out in a dish towel, and when you think you have it dried out, keep going. It took me about 5 minutes on this step to get the water out. You really want it too look similar to Masa dough when you’re done.
You can make a batch of this during the weekend, and keep in the fridge for 7 days easily. When you’re ready to cook, re-heat on a pan with a little butter or oil and you’re good to go!
Thanks again to Personal Trainer Food for supplying me with my meals this month!
