These low-carb Cajun cauliflower wraps are SO easy to make and they taste delicious! Fried cauliflower has a meat-like texture and the other veggies add a lot of crunch. You can use collard greens instead of tortillas as a wrap. This is a fabulous vegetarian/vegan option and it’s great for sharing.
These wraps can be eaten for lunch, dinner, or as a snack and they are perfect for anyone who is trying to cut down on carbs. Serve with any dipping sauce of your choice (my favorite is peanut sauce).
Cajun cooking originates from the French-speaking Acadian decedents of Lousiana and is known for its spicy notes and heartiness. A few examples of popular Cajun dishes are jambalaya and gumbo.
Cajun seasoning was the leading ingredient in this recipe. It is packed with flavor and includes garlic powder, onion powder, salt, paprika and thyme (ingredients vary depending on the brand). This seasoning is great to have in your cupboard and can be added to many different ingredients to give more flavor.
Collard greens can be cooked or served raw. Both have many health benefits. Like most dark leafy greens, collard greens are packed with vitamins and are great for lowering cholesterol and weight loss.
I used collard greens in these low carb cajun cauliflower wraps because they are very firm and hold the ingredients together really well. Other greens tend to fall apart and can cause things to get messy really fast!
