Cauliflower Tacos w/ Lentils & Spicy Avocado Sauce

Cauliflower Tacos PinThe Spicy Avocado Sauce makes these Cauliflower Tacos w/ Lentils very tangy and fresh. We made ours open-faced using soft corn tortillas and then folded them to eat. It’s difficult to find taco shells here in Ecuador that don’t have oil, but these corn tortillas contain only non-GMO corn and water.

Both the cauliflower and lentils have lots of fiber, but the protein comes mainly from the lentils. One cup of cooked lentils has 18 grams of protein.

You can cook the cauliflower and lentils ahead of time and heat them up when you’re ready to assemble the tacos. That’ll speed things up at meal time.

We topped our tacos with some diced tomatoes for pop of color for the pictures, and they tasted good, too. You can squeeze a little extra lime juice over them if you want, and some hot sauce or salsa would also be delicious. Nutritional yeast would give it a cheesy flavor if you like that sorta thing.

The Spicy Avocado Sauce only takes a few minutes to make so you can get that done while the lentils are cooking. If you have any leftover sauce, you can use it as a salad dressing. It’ll keep for a few days in the fridge without browning thanks to the lime juice.

Tofu Scramble

Tofu ScrambleMy first attempt at a Tofu Scramble was a combination of recipes that I found online. Turning a block of tofu into “scrambled eggs” isn’t exactly common sense for someone who’s never done it before so I needed some help.

Some of the recipes were good, but the instructions were really lacking. The cooks who wrote them take for granted that new plant-based eaters need everything explained. That’s what I’ll aim to do here. If anything is confusing, please let me know so I can fix it.

If you serve this delicious tofu scramble to someone and don’t tell them it’s tofu, I doubt they’ll know. It looks and tastes just like scrambled eggs. I like to put some salsa on mine with a side of oven roasted red potatoes and a glass of unsweetened cashew milk. Very tasty.

The turmeric is the key to the scrambled eggs color. A half a teaspoon is all you need for a standard block of tofu. Any more and the tofu scramble is too yellow. Any less and it’s not yellow enough.

Indian or Himalayan Black Salt is another vegan trick ingredient to simulate an egg taste and smell. It contains sulfur and actually smells like hard boiled eggs. Indian Black Salt is different than Hawaiian Black Salt or Black Lava Salt so you can’t interchange the two.
