  • 500 g pumpkin, peeled
  • 2 free-range eggs
  • 5 T psyllium husk
  • ½ t nutmeg
  • ½ t chilli flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Coconut or almond

Cooking Instructions

Cook the pumpkin in a saucepan of boiling, salted water until tender, drain well.

Mash the pumpkin using a fork and add the eggs, psyllium husk, nutmeg, chilli flakes and salt.

Dust a work surface with coconut or almond flour and spoon equal quantities of mashed pumpkin onto the surface. Flatten the pumpkin until 2 mm thick using the palm of your hand. Ensure that each tortilla is completely covered in flour and dry and pliable.

Heat a pan oven a medium heat and dry fry the tortillas for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

Cook’s note: Serve with ostrich burgers made using ostrich mince, coriander, curry paste, red onion and salt, paired with a salsa of Rosa tomatoes, red onion, avocado, coriander, chilli, red wine vinegar and lime juice.

    Hi Astrid,

    You’re right! 2 cm is way too thick. 2 mm should do the trick.

    We’ll fix it asap.

    Thanks for alerting us to the error.

    “Flatten the pumpkin until 2 cm thick using the palm of your hand” 2 cm thick seems incorrect, is it supposed to be 2mm?
