Spicy Cauliflower Grilled Tacos
I am so so excited about these grilled cauliflower tacos.
Seriously, I have been having dreams about them they are THAT good (ok, maybe I need a little more excitement in my life if I am dreaming about grilled tacos, but they are really good 😆 ).
Grilling season is well and truly here, and I have been loving the outdoor eating life.
The hubby has been out there every weekend whipping up all kinds of chicken and beef-related treats for him and the kids. For some reason, I tend to lose all imaginative abilities when it comes to vegetarian food on the grill, and for the past couple of weeks have ended up with a big grilled garlicky portobello mushroom.
Don't get me wrong, they are quite delicious, but the same thing over and over does not go down well with me.
I needed something new and different, so I poured a glass of wine, popped on some Pete Murray to get the summery feeling going, and got creative.
Voila, these grilled chipotle cauliflower tacos were born.
And I am never turning back.
They are a little bit smoky, a little bit spicy, and a whole lot of yum.
I pair mine with a generous serving of avocado and a super fruity-seasonal nectarine and lime chipotle salsa, and it is a match made in heaven.
You have to try them.
If you have never tried grilled cauliflower - it is a life changer.
Seriously, my husband was handing some out in the break room the next day, and we have had to pop some on the grill every time since!
