  • 6 cups cauliflower florets

  • 1 medium red onion, sliced

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 ½ tablespoons lime juice

  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas, warmed

  • 1 small ripe avocado, cut into 16 wedges

  • Sliced radishes and chopped fresh cilantro for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Toss cauliflower, onion, oil, chili powder, salt and pepper together in a large bowl until well combined. Spread in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast until deeply brown in spots and tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; add lime juice and toss to coat.

  3. Divide the cauliflower-onion mixture evenly among tortillas (about 1/2 cup per tortilla). Top each with 2 avocado wedges. Top with radish slices and cilantro, if desired.

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.)
