Cauliflower and Walnut Tacos

The meat for these Cauliflower and Walnut Tacos is prepared with a whole head of cauliflower, to which we add minced walnuts, some garlic and some spices, for a plantiful twist on the classic ground meat. These tacos are not only excellent and easy to prepare, they’re also healthy and filled with nutrients. Serve with this Avocado Cream, this Pickled Red Cabbage and this Cashew Sour Cream.

Avocado Cream

Avocado Cream

I use this Avocado Cream when I make Cauliflower and Walnut Tacos. The beauty about this recipe is that unlike guacamole, it stays green and vibrant overnight. The next day, make yourself a taco salad with the leftovers.

I love this Pickled Red Cabbage. It is an epic addition to my Cauliflower and Walnut Tacos. But you will find yourself adding it to bowls, salads, and as a condiment for jackfruit sliders and plant-based burgers. This pickled cabbage recipe is easy and quick to put together, and it can add a pop of color and crunch to many meals.
