Tuesdays are Tacos for dinner at my house. Each week I come up with a new and tasty recipe. Pinterest is my go-to for recipe inspiration. Lately, I have been eating less meat; therefore, I wanted to find a yummy vegan taco recipe.

Voila! Crispy Cauliflower tacos were born! This taco recipe was easy to make. Using the oven to air fry, the cauliflower keeps them healthy.

I did not miss having meat in this at all—the cauliflower was crisp and crunchy. I tried out Siete’s vegan cashew nacho queso dip as my cheese alternative, and it did not disappoint!

Now taco’s wouldn’t be complete without some homemade guacamole. Freshly made guacamole is significantly better than store-bought. It’s easy to make, and the trick to storing the guac in a Tupperware container is to squeeze lemon or lime juice on the top and then take a piece of plastic wrap and press it on top of the guacamole. Get all the air bubbles out, and it will keep from turning brown.

Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

Cauliflower florets

Gluten-free bread crumbs– Ians makes the best. 1-1 for consistency.

Coconut milk- keeping the vegan theme, I use coconut milk to help bread the cauliflower.

Gluten-free tortialls– siete is my fav!

Vegan cheese- I love violife brand

Guacamole

Any additional toppings of your choice
