Servings: 6

½ head Cauliflower
2 Eggs
¼ cup Fresh cilantro, chopped
Juice of ½ a lemon
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Using a food processor, process them until they look like the consistency of rice.

Pour the processed cauliflower into an oven-proof dish. Bake them in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Take the dish out of the oven and transfer the cauliflower into a bowl lined with a large clean face towel. Leave the cauliflower for 15 minutes to allow it to cool.

In a bowl, combine the cauliflower, eggs, cilantro, lemon, salt and pepper. Mix until they are well combined.

Using the cauliflower mixture, shape them into 6 tortillas. Place them on a baking tray with parchment paper and bake them in the oven for 10 minutes. Flipping them 5 minutes each time.

Bake for another 10 minutes without flipping them and take them out of the oven.

Using a large pan over medium heat, place the baked tortillas on the pan and fry them 2 minutes each side. Repeat with the remaining tortillas. Serve and enjoy!
