The first Thursday of April is national burrito day. Can you believe a day dedicated to celebrating all things burrito inspired? Pure genius!

We’re getting involved over here at KetoDiet because we love a good stuffed tortilla but we don’t like most of the ones ready made off the shelf because they’re often laden with grains and goodness knows what other preservatives.

These grain free keto burritos are stuffed with low carb roasted vegetables, cauliflower rice, cheese and sour cream to help you get more veggies into your diet. Stuffed, I certainly am. I did 3… but just of the good stuff! What’s your favourite burrito filling? Avocado would totally work in here as well. I hope you enjoy.

  1. Prepare the Keto Tortillas by following this recipe. Vegetarian Keto Burritos
  2. Preheat the oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F (fan assisted), or 210 °C/ 410 °F (conventional). Chop the peppers, onion, zucchini and pumpkin into chunks about 2 cm (1 inch) in diameter. Toss with olive oil, cumin, paprika, oregano and a good pinch of salt. Roast in the oven for about 20 minutes until soft.
  3. Meanwhile, grate the cheese.

  4. Blitz the cauliflower florets in a food processor until it resembles a rice consistency (it's best if you use the grating blade). Place in a bowl and cook for 3 minutes in the microwave, or on the stove with a dash of water.

  6. When the veggies are cooked, chop the kale and massage in amongst the other veggies to soak up the oil and flavour. Cook all together for 1 - 2 more minutes. Remove from the oven.

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.

Are the tortillas made out of riced cauliflower+oil+salt?
I read the recipe but am not clear on this detail.  Likely because there are no directions as to cooking the tortillas.  Would love see what you think.  The recipe looks great and I am eager to try it.
Thank you.
