Spiced Cauliflower Tacos

These tacos are filling and were created based on a visit I took to Tennessee Taco Company here in Memphis. At this place, I ate one taco with cauliflower in it and another that had walnuts in it. So delicious and so different. I decided to use cauliflower and walnuts in one taco (strange, I know), but it turned out really well! These tacos also happen to be vegan, if that’s your thing. Let me know what you think!


1/2 head of cauliflower, washed and florets broken

1/2 tablespoon paprika

1/4 tsp turmeric

1 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp cumin

1 tsp salt/pepper blend

1/2 large avocado

1/2 tsp thai chili paste

1 tsp honey

1 tablespoon of walnuts

1 1/2 cups shredded cabbage

4 tortillas

cilantro for garnish

red chili flakes (optional)



Remove florets from cauliflower and rinse thoroughly. In small bag, combine paprika, turmeric, ginger, cumin and salt/pepper.  Add cauliflower to bag and shake to coat. Heat oil over medium heat. Add cauliflower and cook until browned and a fork easily pierces it. Add a little water if needed. Set aside. Combine avocado, chili paste and honey. Build tacos starting with shredded cabbage, then cauliflower, walnuts, avocado sauce. Top with cilantro and serve.
