Crispy Cauliflower Tacos

Crispy Cauliflower Tacos

Let's take a moment to taco 'bout cauliflower. Broccoli's pale cousin often gets overlooked in the produce aisle, but before you give up on this cruciferous little guy, give these tacos a try.

Crispy cauliflower tacos are the perfect go-to summertime meal for when you've got friends coming over or when you're just feeling a like having a "treat-yo-self" kind of day. The cauliflower filling is packed with flavor and a pinch of heat, which pairs perfectly with the creamy cilantro lime yogurt sauce.

Depending on your personal preference or what ingredients you have on hand, you can quickly and easily customize these tasty tacos.
