I recently started to get annoyed with the amount of carbs that are in wraps. I just don’t want to be stuffing an extra 8-12 carbs in my diet when it can be avoided, so I started experimenting. Through some horrible failures, I found a good recipe over at EmpoweredSustenance.
She found that using more egg in the mixture would allow it to hold together better when baking it. Bingo! Throw some spices and herbs in there, some gyro meat, and tzatziki sauce – and you have yourself a winner.
- 1 Large Head of Cauliflower (Cut into florets)
- 4 Large Eggs
- 2 Garlic Cloves (Minced)
- 1 1/2 tsp. Herbs (Whatever your favorite is – basil, oregano, thyme)
- 1 tsp. salt
1. Preheat the oven to 375F
2. Put parchment paper over 2 baking sheets.
3. “Rice the cauliflower” by pulsing the florets in a food processor.
4. Add 1/4 cup water to the riced cauliflower, and add it to a saucepan with lid.
5. Cook on medium high until tender. This is around 8-10 minutes.
6. Drain all the water out, and transfer the cauliflower to a kitchen towel.
7. Wring out the excess water from the cauliflower. This stage is vital – get as much water out as possible.
8. In a bowl, mix the cauliflower, eggs, garlic, herbs, and salt.
9. Form 4 thin circles on the parchment-lined baking sheets.
10. Press the dough down so it forms a thin layer – these will be wraps after all!
11. Keep the wraps fully formed and consistent. There should be no holes showing.
12. Bake them until they’re dry and pliable. This usually takes 15-20 minutes.
13. Let them cool on a wire rack, if you don’t let air circulate underneath, the bottoms will become soggy.
Do with them what you will – dip them in sauce, add some meats and cheese, or toss some vegetables inside. They’re really delicious with anything that I used to put in my wraps – including my Low Carb Chili Con Carne.
Try to serve them warm, out of the oven as they taste the best then. They store in the fridge pretty well, but they taste a heck of a lot better fresh.
This created 5 total LARGE wraps. You can fit a lot into these so I think they’re worth the carbs. The totals that come out for each wrap is: 100 Calories, 4.4g Fats, 5g Carbs, and 7.6g Protein.
