Dinner last night was garlic and herb sweet potato mash slathered on a tortilla made of riced cauliflower, stuffed with grilled chicken and black beans and topped with salsa. It was so filling that I think I’m still full this morning and I didn’t even finish mine! I have half a slice left over for lunch today😋 This beast took quite a few steps to make but was well worth it in the end! Could have been a whole lot easier with regular tortillas…but where’s the fun in that😉

Cauli-Rice
1⃣Dice up one medium head of cauliflower, rinse and place in blender
2⃣Full blender with water to cover the cauliflower and pulse about 5 times (I used a vitamix on high so not sure how fast another blender will chop) until cauliflower is in tiny, rice-looking pieces
3⃣Pout water/cauli-rice into strainer that has a cheese cloth or thin towel inside to catch the pieces
4⃣Important-Squeeze out excess water. Really wring it out and make sure you get out as much water as possible!! (VERY important so your crust/tortilla isn’t crumbly)
5⃣Pour into microwave safe container and cook/steam in microwave for 6-8 minutes

Cauli-rice Protein Tortilla
1⃣Mix together
🔹Cooked Cauli-rice around 1.5-2 cups or whatever you get
🔹1/2c mozzarella
🔹1scoop garden of life unflavored protein powder (or 1/4c almond flour)
🔹1/4c almond flour
🔹1egg+1egg white
🔹1T psyllium husk
🔹1/2t each of emerills essence, garlic powder, s&p, oregano
2⃣Split the “dough” into 3 even balls and press into flat tortilla shells on a sheet of parchment paper that has been greased (probably will only be able to fit 2 on at a time)
3⃣Preheat a cookie sheet pan in a 375F oven, remove and carefully place parchment paper with shells on it. Bake for 10min (or until just starting to brown) in 375F oven
4⃣Remove from oven, and remove parchment from pan and cut in half (each tortilla on one square of parchment)
5⃣Preheat greased frying pan on med-low heat. With a hot pad/glove. Take one of the tortillas and flip it upside down into the pan. On half, spread sweet potato mash (recipe below), black beans and grilled chicken. Fold other half on top and let it heat all the way through
6⃣Plate and serve with salsa (greek yogurt would be delicious too)

🔹2 cooked and peeled sweet potatoes
🔹1T minced/pressed garlic
🔹1t Italian herbs
🔹1t hot sauce (more/less as desired)
