What Can You Make with Cauliflower? Wraps!

Veggie Cauliflower Wraps 

4 Servings: 1/3 Lean, 3 Green, 1 Healthy Fat, 1 ½ Condiments

INGREDIENTS

Cauliflower Wraps

  • 4 cups small cauliflower florets
  • 2 oz (½ cup) reduced-fat, shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup liquid egg substitute
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Cooking spray

Wrap Filling

  • ½ cup guacamole
  • ½ cup diced bell pepper
  • ½ cup diced tomato
  • ½ cup diced cucumber
  • ¼ cup chopped red onion
  • 4 large kale leaves

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor or chopper and pulse until they become very fine rice-like pieces.
  3. Place cauliflower in microwave-safe dish and microwave three minutes. Stir cauliflower, and then return to the microwave for another two minutes.
  4. Once cooled, place cooked cauliflower in a cheesecloth or thin dishtowel and squeeze out as much excess liquid as possible.
  5. Add cheese, eggs, egg substitute, lemon zest, and salt, and mix until thoroughly combined.
  6. Pour a small portion of the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with lightly greased parchment paper. With a spatula, spread evenly to make four medium-sized wraps.
  7. Bake for about 8 – 10 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 5 – 7 minutes. Carefully peel wraps off of the parchment paper, and set aside.
  8. Prepare wraps by spreading guacamole evenly onto each wrap, topping with a kale leaf, dividing remaining vegetables evenly among each wrap, and rolling wraps.
