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.
