Tacos are the perfect weekday meal for so many reasons, and not just for Taco Tuesday! Namely, they’re a cinch to pull together, delicious and have the ability to be loaded with nourishing ingredients. Plus, kids LOVE tacos (well, they love anything in a tortilla, but especially tacos).
These cauliflower tacos are packed with plant-based goodness from the sprouted tortillas on the outside to the paprika roasted cauliflower and
mango-red pepper salsa on the inside.
When assembling these cauliflower tacos, I wrapped them in Silver Hills’s Sprouted Power spinach tortillas.
If you’re a savvy Joyous Health follower, you may already know about my love for Silver Hills and sprouted whole grains in general.
When choosing whole-grain foods, I opt for sprouted whenever possible, since this makes the wheat much easier to digest and less inflammatory in our system.
I know cauliflower is a unique filling for tacos, but rest assured it’s delicious!! It’s seasoned with paprika, cayenne, sea salt and then roasted to perfection. Veggie tacos are the ideal summer dinner – light, fresh and flavourful. Plus, you’ll only have to turn on your oven for a little bit to roast the cauliflower (or you can try grilling the cauli on your BBQ).
Like its close cruciferous cousins, broccoli and kale, cauliflower boasts plenty of antioxidant, cancer-fighting and heart-healthy properties. It has a ton of fibre, aids in hormonal balance and is jam-packed with folate, which is crucial for women of child-bearing age. It also contains lutein, which encourages eye and artery health and supple skin. And with a recipe this simple and delicious, you’ll be back to the market for more cauliflower.
The mango-red pepper salsa is the most delicious topping – it’s the perfect blend of sweet and spicy and its crunchy texture nicely complements the cauliflower and the avocado sauce.
Speaking of that avocado sauce – it has a nice zippy zing to it thanks to the lime juice and cilantro. If you are not a cilantro fan you can swap in any fresh herb you like such as mint or basil.
Here’s the recipe for Cauliflower Tacos with Mango Red Pepper Salsa!
