Do you LOVE tacos as much as I do? If you ask me where I want to go out eat, 9 times out of 10 you’ll get Chipotle, our local Mexican restaurant, or another variation of spicy food. When I first started eating vegan, not having a solid crunchy taco was a struggle. So, I created a little variation for you! Even my hubby loved these, and the homemade slaw takes the edge off the spice.
You probably wouldn’t think to use mushrooms as a replacement, but they absorb the spice well. I’ll spare the exact details, but mushrooms have some solid nutritional benefit as well. Here’s an interesting article about it.
I found this slaw at our local Kroger, but you could create something similar with a food processor. It was just cauliflower, broccoli, green onions, and carrots.

If you can’t find it, I’d venture to guess you could take about 1/3 a crown of broccoli, 1/3 a crown of cauliflower, a couple carrots, and several green onions and process them. Let me know if you try it! I’d love to add it to this recipe.

Make sure you keep a good eye on the mushrooms while you’re cooking. They’re excellent on the tacos, and they certainly replace the texture you’re probably looking for. They can dry out pretty easily though.
Other than that, I don’t have much else to say about this recipe, because it was so easy! I hope to get a post up soon about the homemade guacamole and salsa I did with this. Let me know if you have any suggestions for homemade salsa recipes!

You could easily skip the added sugar in this recipe as well, but for those devout my-cornbread-must-have-sugar people, I left it in there.
Did you make the decision to go vegan, and all of a sudden realize. . . what about alfredo sauce? Well, I’m here to offer you a solution. Since it seems like cauliflower is a substitue for all of our plant-based needs lately, let’s stay on trend with this cauliflower alfredo sauce. Inspired by Crunchy Creamy Sweet’s recipe, use this to replace that cheesy
