Best cauliflower tacos ever!!!

My newest obsession, cauliflower tacos.

Ain’t cauliflower the best vegetable ever? It is such a neutral vegetable that can be transformed into an array of delectable dishes. Like Air Fried Cauliflower BitesBaked Tandoori Cauliflower, Roasted Cauliflower Wraps, Crispy & crunchy buttermilk fried cauliflower, Instant Pot Thai Curry Cauliflower Soup and this addictive Sweet & Spicy Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower and Cashews.

And then the latest Baked bang bang cauliflower <– Crispy baked goodness.

I have adopted some serious technique in achieving a crispy baked cauliflower that is uniformly golden (just as a fried one). It is so good and highly addictive!

May be equally as addictive made into a taco. And you are eating a veggie taco but looks almost like a crispy chicken taco. SO GOOOOOOD.

  • 2 cups thinly sliced cabbage
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 jalapeños pepper, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  • Cook each tortilla over direct flame, until slightly charred on both sides (don’t let get burned). Wrap them in a clean kitchen towel until serving. 

Make coleslaw

  • Toss all coleslaw ingredients along with about 3 tablespoons bang bang sauce, until thoroughly combined. (Can be made ahead and placed in the refrigerator until serving time)

To serve


Baked bang bang cauliflower stays crispy when hot, but not as much after couple of hours due to the high moisture content in cauliflower. However, they are delicious nonetheless and great to make tacos, hot or cold.
