Cut a cauliflower into bite-sized florets and toss them in a bowl with olive oil and taco seasoning.

Spread them on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes until golden and slightly crispy. While they roast, warm your tortillas.

Once done, fill each tortilla with the roasted cauliflower and your favorite toppings like salsa, guacamole, and cheese. Serve!

Recipe Tips

Don’t Overcrowd: When placing the cauliflower on the baking sheet, make sure they’re in a single layer. Overcrowding can lead to steaming instead of roasting, affecting the desired texture.

Tailor the Taco Seasoning: Adjust the amount of taco seasoning to match your spice preference. Like it hot? Add a bit more seasoning. Prefer a milder taste? Use a touch less.

Balance the Flavors: Taste as you go. Adjust the seasoning or toppings to balance the flavors to your liking. Sometimes, a dash of salt or a squeeze of citrus can make all the difference.
