Amazing Cauliflower Tacos

I know right?  Cauliflower Tacos?  Seriously?  But dude – I’m not kidding , you have GOT to try this “taco meat” mixture of cauliflower and mushrooms.  With just the right amount of spices you will NOT believe you’re eating a vegetable .  It’s uncanny!  And it’s SO GOOD!

And for all you men folk out there – Guys, I hear you. I HATED cauliflower too before I went Vegan.
I was a strict corn, peas, and potatoes kind of guy. But when I first started messing around with baked cauliflower – like in my Orange Chicken Recipe…..I thought to myself…….hey – this stuff really ain’t half bad…..
And now? With this recipe for making Cauliflower Tacos?
I am a complete convert! Brothers and sisters can I get an amen? I mean this stuff is flipping AWESOME. It even LOOKS like hamburger meat!
I know, I know – people are going to be like “Why do WANT something that looks like meat?” Or…..”You vegans say you give up meat, and then try to copy it…yuk yuk…”
For those of you “Not in the Know”…..That’s what Brand New Vegan is all about. I make recipes that allow you ease your way into a plant-based diet. And I do that by making the foods you’re already used to a whole lot healthier.
I call it “Vegan comfort food” and I guarantee it’s a whole lot healthier than any of that pre-packaged stuff in the store.
And to me – nothing says comfort food like homemade Tacos. Throw on some fresh tomatoes right out of the garden, and some of that Green Chile Sour Cream I made a while back? Maybe a splash or two of my homemade Taco Bell Fire Sauce?
Man….I’m there.
