Looking after a 4 month old and running a business is no joke! It makes for a very hectic lifestyle and little to no time for everyday tasks….such as making dinner. I love to cook and prefer a meal at home as opposed to take-out. So, I knew I had to figure out a way to fit in a little kitchen time each day. This is where meal delivery boxes come in.

Chipotle-Roasted Cauliflower Tacos
In a hurry? These chipotle-roasted cauliflower tacos will be on the table in no time! Avocado, pickled shallots, and feta add a rainbow of flavour to the roasted cauliflower. Wrap it up in a warm tortilla and hit the road.
- 285 g Cauliflower, florets
- 6 unit Flour Tortillas
- 1 tbsp Mexican Seasoning
- 1 tsp Chipotle Powder
- 1 unit Avocado
- 56 g Spring Mix
- 50 g Shallot
- 2 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
- 1 unit Lime
- 7 g Cilantro
- 28 g Feta Cheese
1: Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F.Wash and dry all produce.Heat Guide for Step 1: 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium, 1/2 tsp spicy and 1 tsp extra-spicy! Cut cauliflower into bite-size pieces, then add to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Toss with 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then the Mexican Seasoning and 1/4 tsp chipotle powder (dbl for 4 ppl) (NOTE: Reference the Heat Guide). Season with salt and pepper. Roast in the middle of the oven, stirring halfway through cooking, until golden-brown, 18-20 min.
2: While the cauliflower roasts, peel, then thinly slice the shallot into 1/4-inch slices. Juice the lime. Peel the avocado, then cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Roughly chop the cilantro. Add half the avocado to a small bowl and roughly mash with a fork. Stir in half the cilantro and half the lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
3: Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add the shallots, remaining lime juice, 2 tbsp vinegar, 1 tbsp water and 1 tsp sugar (dbl all for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring, until shallots are tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Transfer pickled shallots, along with the liquid, to another small bowl and set aside in the fridge.
4: While the shallots cool, wrap the tortillas in foil and place on the top rack of the oven to warm for 4-5 min. (Skip this step if you don’t want to warm the tortillas!) (NOTE: For 4 ppl, divide the tortillas into two stacks and wrap each stack with foil.)
5: Strain the shallot pickling liquid into a large bowl. Whisk in 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl). Season with pepper. Toss in the spring mix and remaining avocado. Set aside.
6: Divide the mashed avocado between tortillas and top with the chipotle-roasted cauliflower. Sprinkle over the remaining cilantro and feta. Top with the DIY pickled shallots. Serve with the salad on the side.
Roasted Cauliflower Tacos – Final Thoughts
I was really looking forward to making this HelloFresh Canada recipe as I happen to LOVE tacos. It looked like the perfect recipe – quick, easy and all the flavors I love. Overall it turned out pretty good but I did find the portions a little small. My hubby was looking for a snack shortly after we ate and that tells me there just wasn’t enough for a full meal. Other than that I’m pretty happy with it. The roasted cauliflower was amazing….I could have eaten it by itself. I think I my expectations may have been a little too high but I would probably order it again and just be prepared to serve it with a little something else on the side.
