These Cauliflower-Chickpea Tacos with Spicy Cilantro Sauce is loaded with bold flavor and they're perfect when you need a quick and easy meal.
I'm finally back with a new recipe of my own.
It's been awhile since I've posted a new recipe of my own. The past couple of months have been hard because I've been dealing with the illness and death of a loved one, who was fighting lung cancer. Even when you know the end is near, it's hard when it happens.
Even when you know the end is near, it's hard when it happens.
Needless to say, I haven't felt much like cooking or being creative in the kitchen, but we still have to eat. So meals lately have been super quick, easy and versatile. In fact, this recipe is a cook once, eat three times maybe more deal.
I absolutely love this Spicy Cilantro Sauce on just about everything. I use it on sandwiches, wraps, veggies, salads, pizza, chips and if course on these easy and delicious chickpea-cauliflower tacos. It has become one of my go-to-meals when I want to eat fast.
Tacos are so easy to make because just about anything can be wrapped in a tortilla for a fun and tasty meal.
