Cauliflower taco recipe ingredients

Cauliflower Taco Recipe Ingredients

Like many recipes in Simply Julia, these cauliflower tacos only require a few ingredients:

  • Cauliflower, of course! We will roast it until it is nutty and golden.
  • Red cabbage – It roasts at the same time as the cauliflower, becoming tender and golden in the oven.
  • Cumin, coriander, olive oil and salt – They fill roasted vegetables with an aromatic flavor.
  • Avocado sauce – This rich and tangy sauce is super easy to prepare! You just need avocado, cilantro, lime juice, and a little mayonnaise.
  • Tortillas – Make your own if you’re ready, or use your favorite store-bought corn tortillas.
  • And whatever bindings you like! I topped my cauliflower tacos with avocado slices, radishes, cilantro, and serranos slices. Diced onions, pickled jalapeños, or even a hint of hot sauce would also be great.

How to make cauliflower tacos

Did I mention that this cauliflower taco recipe is easy to make? 🙂 Here is how it goes:

First, roast the vegetables. Julia roasts the cauliflower florets and cabbage together on a baking sheet. I tweaked the recipe and put them on separate baking sheets, adding the baked cabbage halfway through the cauliflower cooking time. Either way works! Whether you use one or two baking sheets, toss the vegetables with the spices, olive oil and salt before putting them in the oven.

While the vegetables are roasting, prepare the sauce. You can assemble it in a food processor or crush it by hand. It will be bigger if you crush it yourself, but it will still be delicious.

Finally, assemble and eat! Fill the tortillas with a scoop of avocado sauce, roasted vegetables and fixings of your choice.
