Paleo Taco Shells

Paleo Taco Shells

Yield 2-3 servings

So I discovered this recipe on Happy Chomp and it got wonderful reviews. Some key things to note though is they are not meant to taste like corn taco shells, a silicone baking sheet or non-stick sheet is recommended along with parchment paper and do not add oil to the pan!


  • 1 medium head of cauliflower (all the flowerets)
  • 3 eggs OR 4 egg whites
  • Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Use a food processor, blender, or hand grater to grate the cauliflower into a crumb-like texture  
  3. Move the grated cauliflower to a pan and add 1/4 cup of water. Cover the pan and steam over medium-high heat for about 8-10 minutes. Just make sure to stir half-way through to avoid the cauliflower from burning. Keep in mind that you will have a bit more water to squeeze out.
  4. Place the now-cooked cauliflower in a kitchen towel, that is on top of a seive, on a bowl (look at the pictures below). Make sure to drain as much exces water as possible.. there is surprisingly A LOT of water in cauliflower
  5. Mix the drained cauliflower and eggs until smooth
  6. Place the mixture on a baking sheet into circles at about 1/4” thick. 
  7. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip. Bake for another 5-7 minutes. This is important to dry out the tortilla
  8. Move the tortillas to cooling rack to cool, so the bottom does not become soggy
