broccoli tortillas (paleo & GF)

The two recipe videos we’ve done so far in March have been my cup of tea.  Cake, and now tacos.  Miam miam green heaven.

It’s been fun to see what I can do with green.  The inspiration for these broccoli tortillas came from already having replaced cauliflower for potato starch, potatoes, or corn flour in certain recipes.  I figured, why not try out its green cousin?  And it turned out delicious.  Really really delicious.

Have fun with the healthiest taco you’ve ever eaten.  It’s odd, because it tastes almost a bit Asian with the earthiness of the broccoli and the subtle crisped egg flavor.  I am loving it.

Ingredients

  • 1 head broccoli (florets cut into medium pieces)
  • 2 eggs
  • a large pinch salt

Directions

Step 1 Pre-heat oven to 385 degrees Fahrenheit. Pulverize your broccoli in a food processor or blender until it resembles fine granules of sand. Transfer to mixing bowl.
Step 2 Add 1-2 eggs, normally two if your broccoli isn't tiny, until mixture obtains a just-moist, homogenous texture. Add a large pinch sea salt.
Step 3 Line a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper or lightly grease it, spoon 1/4 cup batter onto it. Flatten into desired size and thickness of tortilla. Repeat with rest of dough. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, until edges are brown and the tortilla holds solid.
Step 4 Fill with filling and serve with some guacamole for something extra green!

  1. These look amazing! Would love to make these for dinner tomorrow. Would I be able to replace the eggs with “Flax Eggs” and get a similar result?

    1. They are one of my favorite. You know I’ve never tried with flax egg and I’ve gotta say I’m not 100% sure that’d work. I’d try in a small batch and see… test it tonight if you want to rely on it tomorrow, and please let me know the results! It’s possible, though I’m not sure how well they’ll bend.
