Crispy cauliflower quesadillas meet creamy, savory avocado in this deliciously healthy recipe.

These cauliflower quesadillas are baked until golden brown and crispy around the edges, while still soft enough to fold. Filled with a creamy, fiber-rich avocado filling, these dairy-free quesadillas will calm any craving, no cheese necessary. Best of all, they’re ready to enjoy in under an hour!

Cauliflower steps in for corn and flour, to create a thin tortilla with a dose of amino acids and vitamin-C. Cassava flour mixed with egg binds the tortillas, making them pliable enough to stuff with ingredients and even slice. Tip: Arrowroot flour can also be subbed for cassava flour in a pinch.

Avocado adds a velvety texture that perfectly compliments the crispy cauliflower “tortillas”. Lime juice, chili powder, cilantro, and salt are stirred in to add a smoky flavor and herby brightness.


Fresh cauliflower is pulsed until fine and crumbly so it blends seamlessly into the dough. Next, the flour is salted to help draw out moisture before being wrung out using a clean towel. This is an important step to prevent soggy tortillas.

Now it’s time to create the dough by combining cauliflower with cassava flour, egg, and avocado oil forming a moist texture. The dough is divided into two mounds on parchment paper and pressed to form thin circular tortillas. Tip: Slightly dampen your fingertips with water to make the pressing process less sticky. The tortillas are then baked for 25 minutes or until the edges are crispy and the center is set.

These tortillas are perfect for filling with scrambled eggs and chopped bacon for breakfast or piling with your favorite veggie fillings!
