Cauliflower Tacos with Avocado Cilantro Sauce

One of the best taco creations ever made - introducing spicy cauliflower tacos with a creamy, avocado cilantro sauce on top. Not only does one serving of cauliflower give you 77% of your daily dose of Vitamin C, it also is a great source of manganese, vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, and potassium. 


  • ½ cup brown rice flour (or your favorite whole-grain flour)
  • ¾ cup unsweetened non-dairy milk, divided
  • 1½ teaspoons onion powder, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 medium head of cauliflower
  • ¼ - ½ cup of your favorite hot sauce (omit if sensitive to nightshade
  • vegetables)
  • ½ ripe avocado
  • ½ cup cilantro, chopped
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • ½ teaspoon garlic, minced (about 1 clove)
  • 6-8 tortillas (I used sprouted grain tortillas)
  • Toppings: red cabbage, chopped cilantro, lime wedges, jalapeno slice


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray, or use parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add flour, ½ cup non-dairy milk, 1 teaspoon onion powder, garlic powder, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Whisk to combine.
  3. Remove the leaves and stem of the cauliflower and break it up into bite-size florets. Add the cauliflower to the flour mixture and toss until evenly coated. Spread the florets in an even layer on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 425 for 30 minutes, then remove. Pour the hot sauce over the cauliflower, toss until evenly coated, then bake for 10 minutes.
  5. To make the sauce, add avocado, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, ¼ cup milk, ½ teaspoon onion powder, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper to a blender, food processor, or use hand blender. Blend until smooth.
  6. Assemble the tacos by adding a scoop of cauliflower onto each tortilla. Drizzle with avocado cilantro sauce and any add optional toppings you like (e.g. chopped green onions, grilled onions, slivered cabbage, salsa, beans, or rice)
