I was telling my mother about todays post. And she was like: Ok, so, the cauliflower is the wrap? No mom, they are simple cauliflower tacos. So the cauliflower is a spread in the taco? No mom, the cauliflower is used instead of the protein! So for anyone that likes to have meatless Mondays this is a great option for you. This is also a fun way to add more vegetables to your diet! I mean it, they are so tasty and you feel full after eating them as well.

Here the recipe, this makes 4 tacos, so double the recipe if you need more:

Ingredients

  • 1 head or organic cauliflower
  • 2tbs olive oil
  • salt
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 habanero chile (you can also do jalapeño)
  • 1 tbs of lime juice
  • 4 corn tortillas
  • shredded cabage
  • bunch of cilantro

 

Directions

Cut the head of cauliflower into little florets. Cover them with the olive oil and pinch of salt. In a cast iron pan (very important, specially to add flavor), cook them at 425 f in the oven for 50 minutes tossing them half way. They shouldn’t be mushy.

Cut the habanero chile very small and mash it into the avocado. Add the lime juice and salt. You can also use your immersion blender instead. Set aside.

Cut the onion and cilantro and mix it to the shredded cabbage. Set aside.

Heat up your tortillas in a griddle. Spread a thick coat of the avocado mix on the tortilla. I would even spread it a little bit more than I did so when you bite at the top of the taco you not only bite into the cabbage mix.

Add the cauliflower and top the taco with the cabbage mix. You are done with a super simple, healthy and delicious meal.
