Vegan Cauliflower Tacos Al Pastor
Getting creative in the kitchen with my Mexican food, and I think we have a winner here.
Although I love to share my sweet recipes, we make this kind off tacos and mixes way more than anything. Give it a try, and be Mexican for one day.
Traditional Tacos al Pastor are made with pork and spices (not sure which ones) but they were my favorite before going vegan. I think my favorite part was the combination of the spicy pork and the pineapple, that spicy and sweet taste is my favorite. Like when Mexicans add chili to fruit, like helllloooooo it is the best ever.
We've tried to recreate this recipe a few times, and never wrote down the ingredients, but my little sister loves them so a few weeks ago we knew this was the one to share with you all.
It takes a little bit to cook everything, since it goes in the oven but I promise it is worth it.
I hope you like it :)
- 1/2 cauliflower
- 1 cup of tofu
- 1 teaspoon of chipotle, onion, garlic powder
- 2 cups of diced pineapple
- 1 handful of cilantro
- 1 lime
- 1 avocado
- 1/4 red onion
- 1 small tomato
- Pre-heat the oven at 400F
- Chopped the cauliflower into small pieces, and diced the tofu (make sure all the water is drained). Mix with the chipotle, onion and garlic powder. Add one teaspoon of water or so, and mix. It will help the spices to stick to the mix.
- Bake for 30-40 minutes, mix half way trough. We like the cauliflower very crispy, so we leave it for the whole 40 minutes, but feel free to remove them from the oven before that.
- Chop the cilantro into finely pieces and mix with the pineapple, and 1/2 lime juice. Set apart.
- Cut the avocado in half and pour it into a bowl, with a fork smash it until smooth. Diced the onion and tomato, mix with the avocado and the other half of the lime.
- Once the cauliflower mix is ready, serve with corn or flour tortillas, add the pineapple and guacamole.
I like to add jalapeños, but that's just me!
