Spicy and crispy baked cauliflower tacos topped with a creamy cilantro sauce make a delicious and nutritious lunch or dinner in under 30 minutes! 
Roasted Cauliflower Tacos with Creamy Cilantro SauceCauliflower is all the rage now and it’s about time you gave it a try in these spicy tacos. I promise once you try it, there’s no turning back and you won’t miss the meat at all in these delicious tacos!

The cauliflower is first coated with a mixture of my favorite homemade taco seasoning mix and baked in the oven until it’s tender on the inside and lightly charred and crispy on the outside. Next, comes my second favorite part of these tacos and it’s the creamy cilantro sauce. The sauce is made with a mixture of greek yogurt, sour cream, cilantro, garlic, and lime.

The tangy and creamy spice along with the spicy roasted cauliflower and fresh and crispy toppings is a match made and heaven and will make your taste buds dance and beg for more!

To make these tacos keto-friendly, use your favorite low-carb or cheese tortillas. I used whole wheat tortillas from Trader Joe’s which are just 4 net carbs per tortilla.

To make these tacos Vegan-friendly, Replace the greek yogurt and sour cream with non-dairy yogurt, coconut cream, or use a vegan yogurt starter to make your own yogurt at home!
