Equipment

  • Large pot
  • Skillet
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Wooden spoon or spatula
  • Measuring cups and spoons

Ingredients
  

For the "meat":

  • 1 medium cauliflower head chopped into small florets
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 3 cups vegetable broth

For the tacos:

  • 12-16 small corn tortillas
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1-2 jalapeño peppers sliced
  • Lime wedges for serving

Instructions
 

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the chopped cauliflower, and sauté until it is browned and slightly crispy, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pot, and sauté for another 5-7 minutes, until the onion is translucent.
  • Add the smoked paprika, cumin, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper to the pot, and stir to combine with the cauliflower mixture. Sauté for another 2-3 minutes, until the spices are fragrant.
  • Pour the vegetable broth over the cauliflower mixture and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer, reduce the heat to low, and let it cook for 20-25 minutes, until the cauliflower is very tender and the liquid has reduced and thickened slightly.
  • Use a potato masher or fork to mash the cauliflower mixture until it resembles shredded meat.
  • Warm the corn tortillas in a separate skillet or in the oven.
  • Assemble the tacos by spooning the cauliflower mixture onto each tortilla, and topping with diced onion and sliced jalapeño.
  • Serve the tacos hot, with lime wedges on the side for squeezing over the top.
