Middle Eastern Chicken Cauli- Wrap

17 August 2015

One of my favourite veggies to cook with definitely has to be cauliflower. Packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals, cauliflower acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory, boosts brain health, detoxifies the body, and keeps the immune system in tip top shape –an absolute essential in amongst our busy lifestyles. Cauliflower is also very low in carbohydrates, and can be used as a nifty replacement for grains and flours. For those of you following the banting lifestyle, cauliflower can be used to make low carb versions of your favourite starchy meals. From cauliflower rice, mash, wraps and pizza bases, this vegetable is wonderfully versatile and so good for you!

Prep time: 50 mins


Ingredients for Cauli Wrap

1 cauliflower head cut into florets

4 tbsp., psyllium husk

2 eggs

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. mixed dried herbs

Coconut flour for dusting

Ingredients for Filling

1 cucumber – spiced into julienne strips

2 large tomatoes, sliced

6 tbsp. natural Tahini

6 chicken breasts – cut into strips

1 block feta cheese – crumbed

2 avocados - sliced

1 tbsp. coconut oil

1 tsp. crushed garlic

1 tsp. dried rosemary

1 tsp. dried oregano

Salt and Pepper to taste


Step 1: Prepare Cauliflower Wraps

Steam cauliflower florets until soft.

Drain excess moisture and place into a food processor until cauliflower has a crumbed appearance

 Remove cauliflower from blender and place in the middle of a kitchen cloth.

Wrap the cauliflower in the cloth and gently squeeze to remove any excess moisture

Place cauliflower in a mixing bowl.

Add egg, psyllium husk, herbs and salt and mix together thoroughly to form a dough.

Use coconut flour as a dusting agent to prevent sticking. Dust your hands with coconut flour too as mixture can get sticky

Break dough up into four portions

Lay each portion out onto a well dusted surface, coating with coconut flour each time

Use rolling pin to flatten dough and shape into round wraps

Roll very gently as this is not as malleable as normal dough

Once wraps are prepared, dry fry in a large flat frying pan, until lightly browned and then flip wrap to cook the other side.

Remove from heat once cooked and leave aside to cool

Step 2: Prepare Chicken

Cut chicken into thin strips

Heat coconut oil in large frying pan on high heat

Add dried herbs and garlic and fry for 30 seconds

Add chicken, salt and pepper

Reduce heat to medium and sauté chicken for approximately 7 minutes until cooked through completely

Remove chicken from heat and cover until ready to use

Step 3: Build Wrap

Place wrap on chopping board

Slice tomatoes and cucumbers.

Pile cucumber strips and tomato sliced flat in the middle of the wrap

Add chicken strips and avocado slices

Top with tahini and crumbled feta

Roll wrap and hold together using a toothpick to keep wrap sealed

Repeat the above for remainder of wraps
