Cauliflower Flatbread for the Lazy Clean Eater

Sharing is caring!

The lazy clean eater? We are All About That here. If I can skip steps in my healthy recipes to save time in the mealtime dash to get food on the table before the tiny tyrant in the house has a meltdown, I’m doing it. This is actually why I hadn’t posted a veggie flat bread-pizza crust-tortilla-whatever recipe on the blog yet. Most of them seem to require that you pre-cook the vegetables, let them cool, then move on. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Cauliflower rice base

This recipe happened kind of accidentally, because I originally intended to make the Oven-Roasted Cauliflower Rice on The Clothes Make the Girl but the Godfather got to talking about using our ground beef on flat breads instead of making a picadillo-type dish to serve over “rice” (a Cuban ground beef dish) and so I had to change plans halfway through. The cauliflower had already been run through the food processor, so there was no going back and steaming there (as if!), and I wasn’t going to make the rice and then make the flat bread “crusts”.

So… I added an egg or two, a little almond meal to absorb the excess moisture from the cauliflower, some salt and garlic powder and voila! Dinner, and an Instagram post that got way more attention than I anticipated on my personal Facebook page, which is where I share most of my blog-related instagram pictures for some reason instead of the official blog page.

Anyway, after a few people requested the recipe, I realized I should probably go ahead and put it on the blog. What I like about these flatbreads is that they really do offer a great low-carb substitute to rice or traditional tortillas/crust breads and they take much much less time to make. Because I don’t remove all the moisture and add a little fat with the nut meal, they bend a little and will usually hold their shape if sliced into pizza pieces. I broke part of a flat bread into baby-sized bits and my 10-month-old daughter ate it up.

They will keep a few days in the refrigerator if stored properly. I store mine in a reusable container with pieces of parchment paper layered in between to prevent sticking and absorb any moisture drawn out by the refrigerator. I reheat in the oven if I want to be able to pick up pieces to eat like pizza, or in the microwave if I’m going to use a knife and fork.
