5g net carbs 41g fat 21g protein
2 egg whites
6 oz. cream cheese
1½ tsp ground psyllium husk powder
1 tbsp. coconut flour
½ tsp salt
5 oz. grated hard cheese of your liking
1 oz. arugula (rocket) lettuce
Consider the difference between iceberg lettuce and arugula/rocket:
Arugula contains about eight times the calcium,
fives times the vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin K,
four times the iron as the same amount of iceberg lettuce.
Depending on your taste, some may find, they are slightly eggy, however, when you add the fillings and flavourings the eggy taste is gone.
Frying instead of baking
If you don't want to bake the tortillas you can fry them in a pan instead. We recommend using a non-stick pan for this. Add a small amount of butter or oil to the pan and place it over medium heat.
Add a dollop of the batter in the middle of the pan and swirl it around to cover. This will give you a thin tortilla, or crepe if you would rather use it as that. Cook until set on top and then flip carefully and let the other side cook for about a minute.
Prepare ahead of time
You can make the tortillas ahead of time. Allow them to cool completely before stacking them with parchment paper in-between. Wrap them with plastic and keep them in the refrigerator for 2-3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
