Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea Tacos

These were pretty good. I left off the cabbage filling, since I didn’t want to buy a whole head of cabbage to use just a little (and the store didn’t have any pre-shredded). These could have used the cabbage, I think. I should have added more toppings. BUT- they were still good. The cauliflower/chickpea mixture was mighty tasty, and we couldn’t stop nibbling on it before we assembled the tacos. If you use vegan sour cream of yogurt, this dish could be totally vegan!

time needed: 45 min.

Ingredients:

For the Tacos:
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon water
1 (15 oz.) can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 small head cauliflower, washed and cut into bite-size florets
Corn tortillas- I used flour
1 cup finely chopped red cabbage
1 jalapeño, sliced, seeds removed- I omitted
1 large avocado, seed removed and diced
Chopped cilantro

For the Lime Crema:
1 cup plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
1/8 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt, lime juice, olive oil, and water. Stir in chickpeas and cauliflower florets. Place seasoned chickpeas and cauliflower on a greased baking sheet. Roast for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally during cooking, until chickpeas are slightly crispy and cauliflower is tender. Remove from oven and set aside.

2. To make the lime crema, place the Greek yogurt or sour cream in a small bowl. Add fresh lime juice and cilantro. Stir well. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

3. Take a corn tortilla and place roasted cauliflower and chickpeas on top. Top with red cabbage, jalapeño slices, avocado, and cilantro. Drizzle lime crema over the tacos and serve!
