- 2 cups minced raw cauliflower really fine- like flour
- 1 cup cassava flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt optional
|Cook Time||2 minutes|
|Prep Time||20 minutes|
- In a food processor, mince cauliflower until it reaches fine rice or flour-like consistency, then transfer to a towel and squeeze out excess water. Put it back in food processor and combine with cassava flour for 2-4 minutes until it reaches dough consistency and clumps together (you will have to either shake the food processor while it blends or pause and scrape down the sides in intervals to ensure even mixing).
- Divide dough into 10 pieces and roll out into about 5" tortillas 1/4" thick. Heat a skillet over medium heat and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Cook tortillas for about 1-2 minutes on each side until golden.

I SO want to try these; is there any flower substitute that would work for the cassava??
Hi HJ, unfortunately, cassava flour is the only type of paleo flour that can be used in this recipe to get the same results.
Thanks for this recipe. How do you roll these tortillas? Do you use a rolling pin or a spoon to spread it in a round shape?
Hi Noori, I use a rolling pin… and I’ve also done it by hand. 🙂 Enjoy!
Looks amazing! Excited to try!! How do these compare to your sweet potato tortillas?
Hi Marci, I love them- it’s a hard to pick a favorite, because they both a so yummy and unique. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
Can’t wait to try making these! Do you think using frozen Cauliflower would be alright? Or if using frozen, would you suggest sauteing first? Thanks so much!
Hi Katie, frozen cauliflower gnocchi will work too- I’ve actually tried that too!
hello!! if not paleo, what can i substitute for cassava flour?
Hi Christal, my best bet for a sub would be regular wheat flour. Cassava flour has been known to be a 1:1 sub ration with regular flour.
They look incredible and I can’t wait to try them! ❤️ But.. The cassava flour is the tapioca one, isn’t it? Thank you for the recipe!
Hi Cindy, first off- thank you! Tapioca is different from cassava, but it is from the same plant. It is processed differently and therefore results in different uses.
Hii! I’m really exited to try this recipe, here where I live cassava flour is really common in typical foods. I also have a question, do you boil the cauliflower first?
Hi Emilia, I use raw cauliflower and mince it really fine, then it cooks with the rest of the ingredients. 🙂 Enjoy!
Hi. Do you think I could sub tapioca flour?
Hi Annie, it would be really gummy if you used tapioca, so I suggest not using it.
I wanted to love these but two heads of cauliflower only yielded me 1 cup of minced cauliflower which I squeezed through a towel thoroughly. I put in correct amount of cassava flour and salt and put it back in processor. It was still way too sticky so I kept dusting with and adding cassava. Stuck to my rolling pin and my counter. This did not work for me. Into the trash it went and over $7.00 in cauliflower alone. Sorry
Hi Sharon, what brand of cassava flour did you use? That can drastically alter the results I have learned.
Which brand of cassava flour do you recommend?
Hi Cathy, I use Anthony’s Goods cassava flour.
A healthy tortilla! How much does the cauliflower weigh and the cassava flour? I’ve been cooking with cassava flour almost 2 years and have learned that weighing is almost essential to duplicate a recipe.
Hi Bessie, I really couldn’t say… I don’t own a scale. Sorry! That’s a brilliant idea though- I will have to remember that!
have you tried making chips out of these? can u fry them or toast them longer? I often want something crispy. it would be amazing if these could do that!
Hi Yasmin, I kinda have- I just toasted them for longer and it totally works! Enjoy 🙂
Can I use any gluten free flour? I’ve never seen cassava flour in supermarkets.
Hi Maya, no- it must be cassava or wheat flour to get the same results- sorry!
I was checking another web site to find a substitute for cassava (cannot find it ) and came upon a site that outlines what the flour is made from. The site states cassava flour is very high in carbohydrates and should be used sparingly if you are following a a Paleo diet.
I am so excited to try these!!!?? I have been using cassava for my kids pancakes and living on cauli everything since going grain and sugar free. Thanks a bunch! Once I try I will share the outcome on my page
Kaykie… have u tried making these larger? I rather enjoy the larger wraps and have a tortilla sized cast iron skilet just for this project.
Also, my dietitian cautioned me about using cassava, saying it could cause constipation and advised I add Psyllium Husk powder to avoid that side effect. Any thoughts on that?
Hi Helen, you could totally make larger tortillas- make them as big as you want! 🙂 And I have never heard of it causing constipation and I haven’t experienced that.
What is the best way to warm this up if made ahead of time?
Hi Maria, I heat them in the toaster oven- it also re-soften them. If they are too hard after that, you can wet them down with a bit of water and reheat on a fry pan or toaster. 🙂
Hey there! So excited for these. I’ve made cauliflower tortillas before but your video rolling them, displaying their texture had me sold! My dough has come together and I’m about to start dividing up and conquering (cooking) these guys. I made a double batch. I’m curious how you freeze/store them? Thanks!!
Hi Brittany, I cook them then freeze them in a ziplock or stasher bag and pull them out and pop them in the toaster to reheat when I’m ready to eat. Enjoy!
Hi, I made these tonight and were really good! Do you have any suggestions on how to keep them from sticking while I roll them out? I would have liked them a little thinner but I made them as big as I could without sticking.
Hi Diana, make sure to use a floured surface and rolling pin and that should help. 🙂
Are these 2 c. Riced cauliflower before or after liquid is squeezed out?
Ho Christianne, t’s 2 cups raw minced cauliflower before squeezing it out- it ends up being about 1 1/2 cup once it is squeezed of excess liquid.
Hey there, i tried these using frozen riced cauliflower and they were way too sticky. I guess i needed to use raw cauliflower?
Yes, raw cauliflower is best.
My cauliflower was ground 3 days ago, I did it for another recipe and forget it. Now that I found this recipe for tortillas I made it with cassava flour, But I realized that I was using a lot of oil in the pan so I decided to add it to the dough. They came out delicious and soft , even my adult son who even saying that there was cauliflower in the tortillas he ate two.
Has anyone tried this with a different flour? I have SIBO so I can’t do any high carb flours 🙁
Can you I use a blender instead of a food processor
Hi Juan, I don’t think a blender would work very well- a food processor is really best.
Can this be made without a food processor? i have a mini-food chopper and a blender. can either of those be used?
Hi Karen, a mini food chopper might work, but I haven’t tried it, so I cannot say for sure.
There was almost no moisture in my cauliflower so I added a bit of water while mixing… unfortunately I added too much water so it was impossible to roll them without having them break apart either on the pin or after on my counter. I found a solution for this by rolling them between two pieces of a parchment paper. Easy peasy. These were delishious – I rolled them with some traditional taco goodies. Yum!
These aren’t bad actually but if I could help a bit with my tricks because I do agree they stick and almost impossible to roll out.
First, use Pam spray (I use coconut oil) and spray rolling surface lightly as well as spray your rolling pin.
Form patties by hand and then roll out to give it shape and stretch a bit.
Second, use a dough cutter and gently scrape under neath while using a gentle back and forth motion.
This helps the tortilla to come off without tearing.
I was so excited for two ingredient tortillas. I was shocked to see a third ingredient SALT. I feel deceived and lied to. What will I tell my wife.
Will these freeze well for make ahead breakfast burritos?
making these tonight to go with a lentil taco filling and all the trimmings! can’t wait for that yummy goodness, but i did have one question about the storing of these tortillas.. i would like to keep them in my freezer; how long should they last in there?
Hi Mariah, you can store them in the freezer for about 1-3 months. 🙂
I used tapioca flour since I couldn’t find cassava flour where I live. I used 3/4 cup instead of the full cup and it worked perfectly. Thanks for such a great recipe!
Wow, great to hear!
Thank you! These are delicious and simple. I found that I had to add water back as the dough was too dry (I live at altitude in CO🤷🏻♀️). Easy fix but I will try without squeezing so much moisture out the next time. I added 2tsp of onion powder to some of them and really liked this variation. (Might try minced garlic and dill another time). I found it easier to mix the ingredients in a bowl instead of in the food processor. They froze great between parchment paper. I also rolled them out between parchment paper which made it easy and no mess. And though they take some time to cook, these savory tortillas are a wonderful option for all kinds of dishes.
YES!!! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for!!! My husband and I are obsessed with tacos (a little on the spicy side even), and have had a hard time finding a good enough recipe for the tortillas. You’ve officially saved us. Thank you!
Thank you so much Suzanne!
Instead of the cassava flour can I use wheat flour? Or is the cassava flour gastric bypass friendly?
The best (and only good sub) for cassava if wheat flour.
Can’t wait to try! I have frozen riced cauliflower i need to use – can I just thaw and use that instead of using fresh cauliflower? Thanks!
Hi Camille, I think that should work! 🙂
Can you add protein powder to the mix?
Hi Donna, I’m sure you could- maybe swap out 2 tbsp flour for protein powder?
Have you used cauliflower flour? Or just raw cauliflower
Hi Lysette, I just use raw cauliflower. 🙂
If I use Almond flower will i get the same texture..? wold the almond flour work if i dont need it to be paleo?
Shantel, I have never used almond flour in this recipe. I don’t think they would hold together as well.
I followed the recipe using frozen riced cauliflower, I did find the recipe too dry, so I added water back into the mix so it would come together. I also found I wasn’t able to get 10 out of the recipe, I only got five and they weren’t very big. Overall quite tasty indeed, will definitely make it again with less squeezing of the cauliflower. Thanks!
Delicious, it worked perfectly.
Do you know if these are freezer friendly?
Hi Hannah, yes- they are!
Hi! Super excited to try these!
How would you go about cooking them being oil free about it? Maybe toasting them in a pan out baking them?
I think they might stick without the oil, but you could try it!
So I made these and they are absolutely delish!!! However, I must have done something incorrectly because I couldn’t get them to fatten out without separating at the edges. Wish I could attach a picture so you could see. They look like flowering tortillas rather than circles. Lol. If that makes any sense.
Can I use cauliflower flour with some water instead of raw cauliflower? It’ll save me the ricing and the squeezing steps.
Hi Asra, that might work! I haven’t tried it to be sure, but it could be a good sub!
