Spice up your taco Tuesday menu with a different version of tacos: Cauliflower Tacos. Not only is this a fun way to spice up your weeknight meal; but using cauliflower as your meat substitute has some added health benefits. Cauliflower gives you a good source of vegetables that are rich in antioxidants to help support the immune system. With strong flavor profiles from the added cumin, chili powder and the caramelization from roasting the cauliflower, you will have no trouble skipping the meat for this meal.
