Twice-Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos ~
Spicy Buffalo cauliflower with cool vegan avocado crema. Ready to serve in 30-45 minutes.
Seriously, if I could only eat one food group for the rest of my life, it would be tacos.
That’s right; tacos absolutely qualify as an entire food group in my mind.
What I love most about these tacos, besides the spicy Buffalo flavor, is that the cauliflower is baked rather than fried.
That way you get the awesome crispy crunchiness without all the oil and mess that comes with frying.
Add to that, whatever fresh greens you have on hand (I used lettuce but also think kale or slaw mix would go great as well) tossed in an easy avocado crema and piled into a warm soft tortilla and you’ve got yourself a meal the family will love!
