Author Notes

I am a total taco fiend and a shameless one, too! Tacos (vegetarian or pescatarian) in any form are totally acceptable in my books. I can’t remember when my love for tacos truly began, but one thing is for sure this love is true & forever!


I do have my favorites though, the soft shell corn tortilla tacos are truly near & dear to my heart.

Here’s my take on the vegan favorite, Roasted Cauliflower Tacos with Mexican style cannellini beans, green cabbage slaw, & pico de gallo. —Amrutha Harsha Rao

  2. In a pan heat the oil & add in the onions to sauté. Once translucent add in the garlic & sauté till the raw flavor is gone. Add in all the spices & sauté until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Make sure to lower the flame as these are very easy to burn.
