While searching online for a vegan low-carb zucchini tortillas/rotis, I didn’t find a single recipe without eggs. Although I found some recipes completely veganized, it was not low-carb. After some experiments and brainstorming, this recipe was then born in my kitchen. It’s super satisfying and tasty.

I am trying my best to go completely plant-based and low-carb. After all, it’s now time to shed some of that tough baby fat that I gained last year. My baby is eight months, and I have few more pounds to lose to get back to my pre-pregnancy shape and weight. Wish me luck!

Zucchini, if you know, is a very healthy vegetable and low-carb. I have another recipe of zucchini in this blog. You can read more about its nutrition facts here. The hero of this recipe is definitely zucchini. In addition to that, I have vegan chia egg, psyllium husk, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper, and just two tablespoons of almond flour.

I prefer using blanched almond flour for this recipe. You can use coconut flour too. Almond meal wasn’t very palate friendly when I tried with this recipe. However, it’s a personal choice to use blanched almond flour.

The chia egg and psyllium husk swell up in the zucchini juice and make the mixture doughy just the way we want the dough for a tortilla or roti. Although we can’t really use a rolling pin to make these flat breads, but it’s super easy to make thin rounds using this dough.
