Veggie Tacos

I love to make these Cauliflower Tacos for a wonderfully colourful, veggie loaded meal.

Vegetarian or not, you’ll love the texture of these battered cauliflower florets and I guarantee your kids will too. Crispy on the outside and soft inside, they have a hint of sweetness that pairs perfectly with fresh avocado, home made tomato salsa and a drizzle of sour cream, if desired.

Set your table to create a make-your-own Taco station and let everyone choose their favorite ingredients. This makes prep work minimal and meal time lots of fun!

For a vegan option use an egg replacer and omit sour cream.

Ingredients

  • 12 Taco Shells
  • **For the Batter:
  • 1/3 cup corn flour
  • 1/2 cup GF flour
  • 1/3 cup GF beer
  • 1/2 tsp paprika + 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • **For the filling:
  • 1/2 head of Cauliflower
  • 2 Avocados
  • 1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp Onion
  • 5 Radishes
  • 2 Capsicum
  • Purple Cabbage
  • Lettuce of choice
  • Handful Fresh Coriander
  • 1/2 cup Black beans
  • Hot Peppers if desired
  • Lime wedges

Instructions

1

Prepare your veggies - slice avocado, radishes, capsicum and purple cabbage. Cut lime into wedges. Chop peppers into small rings. Cut cauliflower into florets.

2

Prepare a fresh salsa by chopping onions and cherry tomatoes into small cubes. Finely chop coriander and combine well with a sprinkle of olive oil, salt and pepper.

3

Prepare the batter. Add cauliflower florets and mix with a spoon to coat well.

4

Preheat oven to 180C. Prepare taco shells open side down on a baking tray.

5

In a skillet prepare oil for shallow frying. I like to use a combination of coconut and sunflower oil. Prepare a drying rack with paper towels to drain excess oil.

6

When oil is hot add cauliflower florets. Cover the pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side.

7

Place taco shells in the oven. Bake for 5-6 minutes, make sure to watch them closely as they can go from golden to burnt in no time.

8

Prepare all individual components in bowls and allow everyone to assemble their own tacos at table!

Provechito! 🙂
