Instructions

Instructions are for 3 servings. Please modify as needed.

Tortillas

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Whisk the eggs and egg whites fluffy and continue to whisk with a hand mixer, preferably for a few minutes. Add cream cheese and continue to whisk until the batter is smooth.
  3. Mix salt, psyllium husk and coconut flour in a small bowl. Add the flour mix one spoon at a time into the batter and continue to whisk some more. Let the batter sit for a few minutes, or until the batter is thick like an American pancake batter. How fast the batter will swell depends on the brand of psyllium husk – some trial and error might be needed.
  4. Bring out two baking sheets and place parchment paper on each. Using a spatula, spread the batter thinly (no more than ¼ inch thick) into 6 circles.
  5. Bake on upper rack for about 5 minutes or more, until the tortilla turns a little brown around the edges. Carefully check the bottom side so that it doesn’t burn.

Quesadillas

  1. Place three tortilla breads on a large cutting board or directly on the kitchen counter. Place half the cheese on the tortillas.
  2. Add some leafy greens on top, sprinkle the rest of the cheese and add the remaining tortilla breads.
  3. Heat a small frying pan with or without oil. Roast for about a minute on each side so that the bread turns a nice color and the cheese melts.
  4. Divide into pieces and serve immediately as a snack or appetizer.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the recipe. Could you please explain a bit more the beginning of the recipe? Indeed, i am lost with the egg white and eggs. Do we need to mix both all together?

    Thanks

    Hi La Pie!

    Yes, place the egg whites and the whole eggs in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, it takes a few minutes to reach that stage. Add the cream cheese to the eggs and then mix until smooth.
    In a separate bowl mix the dry ingredients as mentioned. Combine the dry with the wet, one spoonful at the time, until all is incorporated. Continue mixing the entire time. Set aside for a few minutes to swell.

    Good luck!

    I've made the tortillas but...I don't like the taste of the eggs in it. I think it's very strong. How can I improve the flavor?

    Hi Claudia!
    Try adding herbs and spices that you like. 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of paprika powder, cumin, coriander or chili powder would work fine in this recipe. Good luck!

    I made the mix....but decided to fry these instead. They make fantastic pancakes.

    Can you substitute almond flour for the coconut flour?

    I absolutely LOVE this recipe! I have been LCHF for a while and the tortillas alone are brilliant. Much better than the recipe I had been using previously. Yes, they are slightly eggy, but that happens a lot with these sort of recipes and when you add fillings and flavourings the eggy taste is gone. The quesadillas were fantastic, so quick and easy to make. With the spinach and feta this recipe reminds me very much of Turkish gozleme, only without all the carbs. I'll be making this again and again, thank you!
