  • 5 cups cauliflower About 1 medium size head. chopped
  • ½ tsp chipotle powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion salt
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 4 tbsp chopped cilantro (for topping)
  • 1 chopped avocado (for topping)
  • small flour or corn tortillas

Smokey Garlic Sauce

  • ¾ cup tahini (well stirred)
  • 3 tsp lime juice
  • ½ tbs liquid smoke
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp honey *
  • ¼ cup water (keep on the side do not use it all at once!) *This is to thin the sauce!


For the cauliflower 

  • Set oven to 400 degrees. Chop cauliflower, add to a large bowl. Pour seasonings over it and toss well. Add oil and toss again well.
  • Lay cauliflower flat on a sheet pan and bake for 30 minutes or until it is browned and soft enough to pierce with a fork. * Pro-tip Put the sheet pan in while the oven is preheating. PLacing the cauliflower on a hot pan helps to blacken it.

Smokey Garlic Sauce 

  • Combine all the ingredients except water to a bowl. Add water in slowly to thin the mixture out so it's spreadable like sauce. You may need less or more than the recipe calls for. add little amounts, stir ... then add more if needed. Tahini mixture will take a little while to accept the water and thin but it will eventually, be patient here!
  • Once you have the mixture to your desired thickness, build tacos and drizzle sauce over tacos.Top tortillas with mixed greens, cauliflouwer, cilantro and extra lime wedge. Enjoy


*Use fresh cauliflower. Frozen will work but it won't be as crispy.
*about 1  sized head of cauliflower.
*maple syrup works as well if making this vegan.
*Water - you may need to adjust sauce to amount of cauliflower.
