Cauliflower Tacos with Mango Salsa

It seems to be that cauliflower is getting a lot of love lately especially in the plant-based and carb free (or low carb) communities. It is so versatile and easy to cook up. I love me some easy recipes!

This summer my sister made me a delish mango salsa bowl and I had previously created a yummy roasted cauliflower bowl and one day I decided to pair the two. That is how this recipe came together. This is one of my biggest tips for avoiding food ruts and keeping things fun and fresh in the kitchen. Don’t reinvent the wheel when it comes to new recipes, take something that you know you like and add a small spin on it to make something familiar but new.

This dish below can easily be turned into a buffalo, mexican, or teriyaki cauliflower wrap.

The mango salsa is refreshing and adds so much flavour to any meal so if you have any leftovers get creative on how you can repurpose it into another bowl, wrap, salad or as a side. Repurposing leftovers is another one of my tips on how to keep things fresh and easy when it comes to meal prep and healthy eating. I tossed my leftovers on mixed greens with some roasted chickpeas and a little feta cheese for a new easy meal.

Cauliflower Tacos with Mango Salsa

Ingredients

1-2 cauliflower heads (2-4 cups), cored and cut into 2-inch florets

1-2 tablespoons avocado oil

2 teaspoon chili powder

dash of salt and pepper

Mango Salsa

1 ripe mango, peel and cut into bite sized cubes

¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped

½ red pepper, diced

½ yellow pepper, diced

½ cup corn

Juice from 1 lime (2-3 tablespoons)

 Avocado Sauce

2 ripe avocados

1 clove garlic, minced

Juice from one lime (about 2 tablespoons)

dash of salt and pepper

 1 package of wraps or lettuce wraps

Directions

1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position and preheat the oven to 475 F .

2. Toss cauliflower with oil and chili powder and spread out on baking tray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper then cover with aluminum foil, and roast 10-15 minutes until cauliflower is deep golden and charred edges. Stir half way through roasting.

3. Meanwhile make mango salsa by adding diced mango, peppers, corn, and cilantro to a small bowl. Juice one lime and drizzle over mango salsa. Add a dash of salt and pepper and set aside.

4. In a small blender or food processor make avocado sauce by combining avocado, minced garlic, juice from 1 lime and a dash of salt and pepper.

5. Assemble tacos in lettuce wraps or wraps by spreading avocado sauce on bottom adding cauliflower and topping with mango salsa.

Note - Option to add in favourite protein source - can add edamame to salsa, add cooked tofu or chicken.

By adding lime or lemon juice to the avocado this stops it from browning so quickly. So if you ever use only have an avocado or part of one simply cover the top or exposed green part with a little bit of citrus juice.
