Cauliflower Vegan Tacos


These vegan plant-based tacos made with SWEET CHI are an easy-to-make twist on a typically not-so-vegan dish. Beans, cabbage, breaded cauliflower and a spritz of lime make for nutritious vegan tacos for either lunch or dinner. The extra cauliflower can also be used as a tasty appetizer. To reheat your extra cauliflower, reheat them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. 

 Taco Ingredients

  • Crispy cauliflower (ingredients below)
  • 15 oz vegetarian refried beans or black beans (whichever you prefer)
  • 2 cups cabbage mix, shredded
  • 2 limes
  • 3 tbsp of SWEET CHI soup
  • 8 corn or tortillas

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter

  • Warm the tortillas on a pan on medium heat for a few seconds on each side. Can also char them.
