Craving tacos without the guilt of carbs? Well now you can have one! These tacos only contain two main ingredients, which are cauliflower and eggs, that’s it! I added chives for additional flavour πŸ™‚ These tacos were layered with homemade guacamole, red onions, field green veggies, and pan seared shrimp and scallops, topped with a light drizzle of sriracha sauce.

so enjoy your tacos and still look sexy πŸ˜‰

*This recipe is similar to my cauliflower bun recipe, but only has a few tweaks.

Recipe for tacos: makes 5

2 cups riced cauliflower
2 organic cage free eggs
2 tbsp organic fresh chives (chopped)

Preheat oven to 350Β°F.

To make cauliflower rice, place 3/4 of a cauliflower head into small pieces and place in a food processor (without the stem). Puree in food processor until a rice texture forms.

Place cauliflower rice in a large bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. When ready, stir cauliflower and place back in the microwave for another 2 minutes.

Place cauliflower in a 3 layered paper towel sheet to squeeze out the excess moisture, this step is important because you don’t want a runny batter.

Place drained cauliflower back in the bowl and add in eggs, and chives. Mix until a semi thick batter forms.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spoon in mixture to create 5 mini flat circles.

Bake for 19 minutes, flipping sides half way through.

When ready, remove tacos from the oven and transfer to a skillet over medium heat. Fry both sides for about 1 minute to give it a crispier texture.

When ready, enjoy with pan seared seafood of choice.
