“In this vegetarian taco recipe, cauliflower is tossed with a smoky-tangy sauce made with honey, lime juice and chipotles in adobo sauce before being roasted. Serve with more hot sauce, if desired.”

Ingredients

    • ¼ cup lime juice (from about 2 limes)
    • 1-2 tablespoons chopped chipotles in adobo sauce (see Tips)
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • 1 small head cauliflower (see Tips), cut into bite-size pieces
    • 1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
    • 1 (15 ounce) can refried black beans, warmed
    • 8 corn tortillas, warmed
    • ½ cup crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese
    • Sliced red cabbage, fresh cilantro, guacamole, jalapeño slices and/or lime wedges for serving

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • 2 Combine lime juice, chipotles to taste, honey, garlic and salt in a blender. Process until mostly smooth. Place cauliflower in a large bowl, add the sauce and stir to coat. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle onion on top.
  • 3 Roast, stirring once, until the cauliflower is tender and browned in spots, 18 to 20 minutes.
  • 4 Serve the vegetables and beans in tortillas, topped with cheese and garnished with cabbage, cilantro, guacamole, jalapeños and/or lime wedges.
  • Tips: Look for small cans of smoked chipotle peppers in adobo sauce near other Mexican ingredients in well-stocked supermarkets. Once opened, refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 6 months.
  • To prep cauliflower: Remove any outer leaves. Cut off the stem. Turn head upside down and, holding the knife at a 45-degree angle, slice around the stem to remove the core from center of head. Cut the head into large florets. Then, cut or slice florets to desired sizes.
