Meet my new taco obsession, Cauliflower Tacos. My sister and brother in law had been raving about these tacos for awhile now. My sister said they eat them at least once a week, so last week on our beach trip they made them for us and I was blown away. For a meat free taco these are amazing. They are a bit spicy which I love. The cauliflower gets a little caramelized and crispy and trust me you won’t be able to stop eating it. The spicy cauliflower paired with sweet fresh corn, and creamy avocado is just the best flavor combo. The cauliflower is delicious on its on too. I gobbled up our leftovers over quinoa the next night. I think this may just become a weekly meal for us too!

1 head cauliflower
1/4 cup hot sauce
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
3 ears corn
refried black beans
queso fresco crumbled
sour cream + hot sauce
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut the cauliflower into bite size pieces. Mix together the hot sauce, melted butter, garlic powder, and salt and then pour over the cauliflower and mix well- I usually do this in a large bowl and then transfer to a baking sheet. Place the cauliflower on a baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes, after 20 minutes stir the cauliflower once.
While the cauliflower is cooking, boil the corn. I usually boil it for about 10-5 minutes just to slightly cook it and soften the kernels. Once it is done cut off the kernels and place in a bowl.
Mix sour cream with hot sauce (we love cholula and valentina)
Dice the avocado and sprinkle with salt and drizzle with lime or lemon juice
Assemble tacos! Layer a flour shell with black beans, cauliflower, corn, avocado, sour cream, cheese and jalapenos
As many of you know I am cookbook obsessed. I get so excited when I find a new cookbook. Well I had a few readers recommend the Love and Lemons Cookbook and I have to say it may just be one of my favorite cookbooks ever. Now keep in mind I have only made one recipe (the Quinoa Salad Radicchio cups, see picture below) and it was beyond delicious. I can just tell the rest of the recipes will be just as good. I judge a cookbook by its layout and the recipe content. This cookbook is beautiful and it has a picture of every recipe. I love pictures, it helps me visualize the recipe. The cookbook is divided into categories by vegetable which I love. I seriously took it to bed with two nights just to read and devour the recipes. It is a vegetarian cookbook so if you are looking for meat free recipes, I highly recommend this cookbook!
