Cauliflower Tacos topped with a sweet and spicy slaw

I love making cauliflower tacos! Especially cauliflower tacos topped with a sweet and spicy slaw.

I really enjoy cooking with cauliflower. It’s a great substitute for chicken. If you’re looking to incorporate more meatless meals into your meal plan, cauliflower is a great vegetable to use. It’s actually one of my favorite vegetables to use in the place of chicken. This vegetable will surprise you!

In this cauliflower taco recipe you will be using lots of healthy ingredients. You will be using cauliflower, onions, peppers, garlic and if you make the slaw you will need some purple cabbage.

Cauliflower tacos are one of my favorite weeknight meals

I understand how busy the weeks can get. This recipe is really easy to put together. You simply cut your vegetables, add them to a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, add the seasoning and bake it in the oven. These tacos have great flavor too, especially when you top it with the sweet and spicy slaw. They would be a great addition to any Taco Tuesday!


Have you heard of meatless Monday?

For health reasons many people are deciding to go meatless at least one day a week. It’s not only healthy for you but also for our planet. I’ve always thought incorporating meatless meals was a great idea! I think you’ll be surprised how many great plant based recipes are available when you start looking. It might help you lose weight and save you money.

We’ve always made meatless meals for the fact we have a vegetarian in our house. It really drives our decisions on what kind of meals we make. If you’re a vegetarian, or just simply trying to go meatless this cauliflower taco recipe is a delicious meal to try!

Growing up I hated meat. Every Sunday my mom would make a special meal that involved some kind of meat. These special meals were never my favorite. I always made sure to have my napkin ready to hid what ever I didn’t want to swallow. It’s really interesting to think back to your childhood and realize what shaped you. My favorite food memory was having some frozen vegetables, baked potato and a pile of butter toast. I am so thankful for those great memories!

Just like growing up, I really prefer eating meatless meals. The change now is I actually enjoy eating meat on occasion. I’m definitely not as adventurous as my husband, who eats anything. The list of what I’ll eat has really grown over the years. Our trips to new restaurants and finding the love for cooking has really changed how I eat and feel about food. My favorite Sunday meal would have to be some BBQ ribs. I’m curious…What’s your favorite meal?


Food creates memories

Like it or not food creates memories. My hope for my children is that I’m creating great memories around food. I hope they grow up and share some of the same passion for food and gardening that I do. What’s your favorite food memory? Comment below I would love to her from you!
