Zucchini Tortillas


In this genius carb swap recipe, shredded zucchini held together with a little cheese creates a delicious gluten-free tortilla. These low-carb tortillas are delicious on their own as a snack, but you can also wrap them around your favorite tortilla fillings. Be sure to squeeze as much liquid as possible from the zucchini in Step 2, as this will yield crispy tortillas.

8 tortillas


  • 1 pound zucchini, shredded (3 1/2 cups)

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup gluten-free all-purpose flour or almond flour

  • ½ cup shredded pepper Jack cheese

  • 2 scallions, finely chopped

  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin


  1. Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Preheat to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Place zucchini in a colander. Sprinkle with salt and toss to combine. Let stand for at least 10 minutes, then squeeze the zucchini with your hands to remove as much liquid as possible. Transfer to a medium bowl and add eggs, flour, cheese, scallions and cumin. Stir until well combined.

  3. Make four 1/4-cup mounds of the zucchini mixture on each baking sheet. Using your fingers or a fork, flatten each mound into a 5- to 6-inch circle. Bake, switching positions of the baking sheets halfway through, until browning in spots and around the edges, 16 to 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a rack to cool.


To make ahead: Refrigerate tortillas in a covered container for up to 3 days. To reheat in the microwave, place a tortilla between 2 sheets of paper towel. Microwave on High for 15 to 20 seconds.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
