Tandoori Cauliflower Tacos

Jump to recipe

These tandoori cauliflower tacos are marinated in a vibrant tandoori yogurt sauce and burst with flavor in each bite.  Perfect for lunch or dinner, these meatless tacos are easy to make and filling. 
Recently, I’ve discovered that I like experimenting with the tandoori flavors.  For a long while, I would never make anything requiring a tandoori marinade as I was intimidated by the amount of spices it involved.  I also had this irrational misconception that making tandoori marinade is a long and complicated process.  I’ll tell you what… it’s actually not!

Honestly, all you really need is some yogurt, spices, ginger and garlic and that’s it!  What I love about it is that you can practically marinate anything in it the night before, come home, cook it and you have a meal ready!  The ease of this recipe and especially of the marinade is my favorite part!

But I’m making tacos?  Yep, I know.  Tandoori and tacos are a beautiful mashup of two amazing cuisines.  The idea came to me because my girls love Taco Tuesdays (even if it’s not on Tuesdays!), and I have to think of new fillings.  Trust me when I say they will make a point to comment if I’ve used the same filling too many times in a row!   Talk about a tough crowd!

So while I was playing around with the idea of tandoori cauliflower, I decided, why not experiment and put it in a taco?!  I am so glad that I did!  Topped with red cabbage, my Avocado Cilantro Lime Dipping Sauce, and garnished with fresh cilantro, it’s simple but delicious.
