Hello & Happy Tuesday!

 

 

 

 

 

If there is one thing we all can agree on, it’s that everyone loves tacos! Believe it or not, we had not done a taco concept on EDS in years. That being said, we’re producing a variety of quick and easy taco recipes! (stay tuned) 

 

While you can easily throw a faux meat product on a taco and call it a day, it’s so seamless just to make your filling using veggies. One of the most versatile veggies that always works, is cauliflower! If you’re not crazy about cauliflower, this recipe will absolutely change your mind! 

 

What’s different about this cauliflower taco recipe? The flavor!

I personally love cauliflower as it has a neutral flavor profile enabling you to really pack on whatever flavor you like. Also, you can actually marinate cauliflower to impart even more flavor! We pack on chipotle sauce in the marinade and peppers in the sauce, which truly enhance the flavor!

 

Bonus, cauliflower packs fiber making these tacos much more filling than faux meat options. 

 


 

What’s fab about this recipe? Everything! It’s quick, easy, affordable, packs flavor, tacos are colorful, vegan, they have notes of lime, the sauce is smokey with a hint of heat, pack plant protein with the cashews, the cauliflower is baked and not fried, they are perfect for any season, can easily be made in bulk and are a must try!
