Introduction: Cauliflower Tortillas

As a Mexican teenager, tortillas are part of my daily diet. I literally eat them with anything every single day. It is very comforting to go home after a day full of activities and have quesadillas for dinner. They are easy and fast to make, plus don’t require many ingredients. They are a typical mexican dish with a delicious taste. The idea of making tortillas out of cauliflower came when I noticed that many of my friends who were on “no-carbs” diets where not able to include normal tortillas in their diets. They really seemed to have trouble when deciding what to eat because tortillas had been such an important part of their diet. These cauliflower tortillas are a perfect healthy substitute for normal tortillas that still maintain that great traditional taste of comfort.
