Quick and easy to make, these roasted cauliflower tacos are loaded with toppings and served with some delicious vegan smoky chipotle mayo. So good!
This recipe can accommodate different vegetables you might have in your kitchen. Sweet potatoes or butternut would both work instead of the cauliflower. You can swap some of the toppings for spinach, kale, cucumber, salad leaves, grated beetroot etc… the only rule is to keep it colourful!
How to make these cauliflower tacos
The cauliflower florets are first coated with olive oil and a fragrant spice mix and then roasted in the oven. In the meantime, you can prepare the mayo and the rest of the toppings. Here I have used sliced red cabbage, diced tomatoes, diced avocado and red pepper plus canned black beans and sweetcorn.
This rich and smoky chipotle mayo is my new favourite sauce. It goes with pretty much everything. This mayonnaise sauce gets its hot and spicy smoky flavour from smoked paprika and chipotle which is perfect for this roasted cauliflower tacos recipe. 100% plant-based it is made with aquafaba (chickpea brine). Unlike conventional mayonnaise, this vegan version requires no eggs as aquafaba acts as a thickener and gives it its silky smooth consistency.
When you are ready to serve, simply pile some of the garnishes on top of each tortilla. Add the roasted cauliflower and serve topped with the smoky chipotle mayo, chopped coriander and lime juice.
