Recipe Card


  • 2 cups grated cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 7 ounces shredded cheese


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 425F (218C).

  • Step 2

    Place the grated cauliflower in a cheesecloth and squeeze out excess water.

  • Step 3

    Combine grated cauliflower, 1/2 cup of egg whites, and 4 oz (~1 cup) of cheese until mixed completely.

  • Step 4

    Flatten out the mixture into 4 tortillas about 6″ wide each; the thinner the tortilla, the more evenly these pieces will bake; discard any excess water that’s in your mixture.

  • Step 5

    Bake for 15 minutes on each side for a total of 30-40 minutes. Helpful tip: Let the tortilla cool for 3 mins before carefully flipping it over to the other side to bake; this cooling process will keep the tortilla from breaking apart.

  • Step 6

    Once the tortillas are fully baked, take out of the oven and let cool for another 2-3 min. Then evenly sprinkle 1.5 oz (~1/4 cup) of cheese to one tortilla and add the other tortilla on top. Repeat this to generate with the remaining to pieces of tortillas.

  • Step 7

    Turn the oven down to 300F(148C), put the quesadillas into the oven for 2-4 min until the cheese is fully melted. Let cool for another 2 min and serve with salsa.
