Cauliflower Tacos

As you may have noticed from my last recipe post, I'm on a bit of a cauliflower train - but for good reason. As I mentioned in my last post, cauliflower is a great source of antioxidant-rich nutrients and is anti-inflammatory.

Tacos are great and there is no denying that but they can become quite unhealthy when we are slopping them with cheap ground beef, lots of cheese and store bought sauces. This recipe is a fun twist on your typical taco recipe and is a suitable option to spice up Taco Tuesday, for vegans/vegetarians or anyone for that matter. 

I hope you enjoy :)
