Ingredients

1 small head cauliflower

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella

Kosher salt

3 large eggs, lightly beaten

Vegetable or olive oil, for greasing and frying

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Remove the leaves and core from the cauliflower. Break the florets up into small pieces (including any thick stem parts). Transfer half of the cauliflower to a food processor along with half of the mozzarella. Pulse until the cauliflower breaks down and looks like rice. Transfer to a large bowl and repeat with the remaining cauliflower and mozzarella.
  3. Toss the cauliflower mixture with 1 teaspoon salt and let sit for 10 minutes. Scoop batches of the cauliflower mixture onto a clean kitchen towel and squeeze out any excess moisture. Transfer to another large bowl, then add the eggs and mix to combine. 
  4. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper and oil the paper. Scoop out leveled 1/4 cups of the cauliflower mixture and evenly space 6 mounds on each baking sheet. Use your fingers to press and spread the mixture out into neat rounds about 5 inches wide (just like regular tortillas), making sure there aren't any holes. Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until the tortillas are firm and browned on the bottom, about 20 minutes. Cool completely on the baking sheets. Wrap and refrigerate for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
  5. To use the tortillas for tacos: Heat a little oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add a tortilla and cook until warmed through and browned in spots, about 30 seconds per side. 
  6. To use the tortillas for quesadillas: Cook as you would a quesadilla made with corn or flour tortillas.
