Wash produce before use


Prep and roast the cauliflower

Heat the oven to 450°F.
  • Lightly oil a sheet pan with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil.
  • In a medium [large] bowl, whisk or stir together the chickpea flour and ½ cup [1 cup] water. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Cut the cauliflower into large florets, discarding any leaves or thick stalks.
  • Toss the cauliflower florets in the chickpea flour batter, coating all over.
Transfer the cauliflower to the prepared sheet pan, allowing any excess batter to drip back into the bowl. Spread the cauliflower in a single layer and roast without turning until lightly browned and crisp, 20 to 25 minutes. Clean the bowl used for the batter.
While the cauliflower roasts, prepare the garnishes and heat the tortillas.


Prep the garnishes

  • Cut the lime into wedges.
  • Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.


Warm the tortillas

  • Remove 6 [12] tortillas from the package; save the rest for another use.
On the stovetop directly over a flame, or in a dry medium frying pan over medium heat, warm the tortillas until just pliable and warmed through, about 30 seconds per side. Transfer to a clean kitchen towel, cover, and keep warm.


Finish the cauliflower

  • In the same bowl used for the batter, add the diablo sauce.
Add the roasted cauliflower to the sauce and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Set out the tortillas, cauliflower, lime wedges, avocado, cilantro, cabbage, and pumpkin seeds. Invite everyone to assemble their own tacos.
