Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos

The avocado and ranch help soften the spiciness of the roasted Buffalo cauliflower, which is perfectly tender and flavorful in these vegetarian tacos. The roasted corn adds some sweetness and the romaine some fresh, crisp, crunch.

Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos
Active Time:
20 mins
Total Time:
40 mins


  • 6 cups cauliflower florets

  • ½ cup Buffalo-style hot sauce

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 1/2 teaspoons, divided

  • cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 ½ cups fresh corn kernels

  • 1 ½ cups finely shredded romaine lettuce

  • 1 medium avocado, sliced

  • 12 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed

  • ½ cup ranch dressing


  1. Place rack in upper third of oven; preheat to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine cauliflower, Buffalo sauce and 2 tablespoons oil in a large bowl; toss well to coat. Spread in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast until the cauliflower starts to brown and is almost tender, 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle evenly with cheese. Continue roasting until the cauliflower is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside until ready to serve.

  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add corn and the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil; cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn is blistered and charred, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

  3. Divide the cauliflower, lettuce, corn and avocado evenly among warm tortillas. Drizzle evenly with ranch dressing. Serve immediately.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
