Cauliflower-Chickpea Tacos With Spicy Cilantro Sauce [Vegan, Gluten-Free]





Cook Time



To Make the Spicy Cilantro Sauce:

  • 2 jalapeño peppers, rough chopped
  • 2 bundles of fresh cilantro, washed and dried
  • Juice of 1 medium lime
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste

To Make the Cauliflower-Chickpea Filling:

  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons of Spicy Cilantro Sauce

To Assemble the Taco:

  • 8 gluten-free tortillas
  • Shredded red cabbage and greens or topping of your choice
  • Lime wedges (optional)
  • Vegan sour cream (optional)


  1. Place peppers, cilantro, and lime juice into a bowl of food processor or high-speed blender and process. With the motor running, add olive oil in a slow stream. Season with salt to taste, set aside.
  2. Place cauliflower and chickpeas in a large bowl, add 2 tablespoons of spicy cilantro sauce and toss to coat. Transfer to a shallow baking pan and spread evenly.
  3. Place in pre-heated oven and bake until cauliflower is fork tender, about 25 to 20 minutes, tossing halfway through cooking.
  4. While cauliflower-chickpea mixture is cooking, wrap tortillas in foil and warm in the oven.
  5. To assemble, layer cauliflower-chickpea mixture on your tortillas, follow with cilantro sauce, and toppings of your choice. Serve with a wedge of lime and a bit of vegan sour cream.
