How to Assemble the Burrito

For Burrito: You will need tortilla, salsa or green cilantro chutney which can be made at home, green leaves like collard green or lettuce.

To assemble burrito: Take a tortilla, if it`s fresh home made you do not need to heat it up but if it is store bought, heat it. Now it`s time to line up your prepared cauliflower, a little off center on the tortilla followed by a spoon full of green cilantro chutney, 2-3 spoon chopped collard green or lettuce . Now take four edges of the burrito, spin it around, fold it over, and then the opposite side comes over with it. When you get to the end, tuck everything in so that it forms a nice seal and holds everything inside. This way it is sealed,nothing comes out and you get a little bit of cauliflower, collard and green sauce in each bite.

If you want to make it tastier, add chopped tomatoes,cilantro, salsa, rice and chicken . Now perfect fat free cauliflower burrito is ready.

      Sadly my husband does not like eating cauliflower. I still purchase it for myself and eat it for lunch when he is not here or roast it and eat it as a snack. Your recipe sounds really good with all of the added flavorings. Thanks for your recipe. I can just imagine how good it tastes! Voted useful and interesting.

      livingpah...this looks like something my family would like: I know I would. I will have to give this a try. Cauliflower is one of my favorite veggies but I usually have it with another veggie. I like the idea of all of these spices. Thanks for sharing this.
