I made some paleo tortillas that are soft and somewhat bendable, but can be made more crisp as well. I made these to have with a taco , toastada, or sandwich wrap.The best part is that it contains no cauliflower that makes the house stinky, and the kids whiny. I do love cauliflower though. My hubby hates it ,so I needed to come up with something he would eat. I mixed ground up zucchini, minced garlic in a processor. Then put in fine woven towel or cheese cloth and squeezed out excess water. Mixed in chipotle pepper powder and egg. Mixed in flax meal and coconut flour.
Spread out on parchment paper in circles.
Then baked and flipped over to bake other side. Then I made breakfast toastadas right after. I posted a link for that recipe at bottom of page.

- Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl, and mix in all remaining ingredients.
- Mix until a little thicker ( it won' be like dough , more like a batter ).
- Spoon batter onto parchment paper, using back of spoon to spread into a circle.
- Don't make too thin, you shouldn't see any paper.
- Slide back of spoon around outer rim of tortilla to make even edges.
- Bake in oven for 10 to 12 minutes, then take out and put another sheet of parchment paper on top and flip both pieces of parchment paper over back on baking sheet, then slowly peel off parchment paper on top.

- Can also, at this point, fry lightly in oiled pan, on each side ,to make more crisp.
