Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

Vegan Cashew Cheese

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 4 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp hot sauce

Roasted Cauliflower

Other Ingredients

  • Corn tortillas
  • Mixed greens
  • Crispy onions
  • fresh cilantro chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, toss the cauliflower, starch, avocado oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper until fully incorporated.
  • Spread the cauliflower onto the baking sheet evenly. Roast for about 15 minutes until tender, then broil for about 2-3 minutes to char a bit.
  • While the cauliflower roasts, make the cashew sauce by combining all of the cashew cheese ingredients into a high speed blender. Blend on high, about 1-2 minutes until completely smooth. Pour into a small saucepan and bring to a light simmer then remove from the heat.
  • To assemble the tacos, heat the tortillas if desired. Place mixed greens, roasted cauliflower, drizzle of cashew cheese, crispy onion straws, and cilantro on top to serve.
