  • 4 cups cauliflower cut into small florets
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon of sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • 2 cups slaw
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon  mayonnaise I like Veganaise
  • 1 teaspoon pure liquid honey
  • Garnish:  chopped cilantro
  • Optional: greek yogurt sliced avocado


  • Steam the cauliflower for 5 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, add the slaw, lime juice, mayonnaise and honey.  Stir until evenly coated. Set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the cauliflower, water and all the spices, stir, cover with lid and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • While the cauliflower is cooking, heat the tortillas in a pan on medium heat for about 30 seconds on each side.
  • To assemble the tacos, add a couple of spoonfuls of slaw, a few pieces of cauliflower and top with a dollop of greek yogurt or sliced avocado and garnish with cilantro. Enjoy!


Variations:  If you’re not pressed for time, you can roast the cauliflower in the oven at 450℉ for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Just toss it with all the spices and a splash of olive oil.
