These Teriyaki Cauliflower Tacos With Pineapple Salsa by Kat Condon would be nothing without that pineapple salsa. Just a simple combination of fresh pineapple, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, sea salt, and if you prefer your salsa with some kick to it, go ahead and chop a few jalapeños up and toss them in. Go ahead and play with the recipe, add spice, subtract spice, do whatever! Isn’t that the best part about cooking at home anyway?

This is a fun way to work some extra green stuff into a meal that might otherwise be a little devoid of bonus nutrients: the parsley and tomatillos in the salsa, plus the spinach as a base for the taco ingredients, go together really well (and might even be an easy way to sneak in some added green stuff for unsuspecting kids…?) It’s so yummy, it might just open up the door to more veggie exploration! These Lentil Spinach Tacos by Amy Height are so delicious!
