But one thing I can tell you, this roasted cauliflower tacos recipe is one of my favorites. I love any roasted vegetables and more if it has the spicy and smoky chipotle bite. These tacos are my version more or less of the typical Mexican fish tacos.

The roasted cauliflower kind of replaces the fried fish. You serve them with a crunchy healthy slaw made with carrots, red cabbage, and a spicy chipotle dressing. You see, these tacos are delicious and full of nutrients. It is very important to eat raw vegetables every day. Isn’t this way a perfect way to have them?

And if at your household your people are still not huge fans of cauliflower and raw veggies, this is a great recipe to make them love it. The salad ads a great crunch to the tacos and it is creamy, a bit spicy and delicious. Best of all is that if you have leftovers you can eat it over rice, as a salad or in sandwiches.
