Today I'm throwing it back to these super cool cauli tacos I made when I was on the plant-based challenge! Our brain and our tummies are often trained to think we need meat with every meal but if you give veggies a chance they can be pretty damn satisfying too! 🍄🌽🍅 Did you know that cauliflower is abundant in Vitamin C (77% of daily intake), B6, potassium, magnesium, fiber, anti-inflammatory nutrients AND drumroll... 11 grams of protein in one medium head?? 💪💪
I completely get it if you feel more satisfied with a little animal protein on your plate but why not challenge yourself to trying one plant based meal per week and see how creative you can get with it?! What are some of your fav veggie focused dishes?? I am always looking for ways to spice up my routine 👌

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden and soft.
In a food processor, blend all of the ingredients for the Spicy Avocado Lime Crema until smooth and creamy. Texture will be thick, similar to mayo.
Assemble the tacos. I started with the cabbage, cauliflower, white beans, more cabbage, cilantro, jalapeño and then the lime crema. A good squeeze of fresh lime juices adds a nice touch as well! Enjoy! Nom Nom!
