BBQ Cauliflower tacos are tangy, healthy and delicious! The tangy barbeque sauce, the crunchy lightly pickled cabbage and the creamy avocado create a beautiful balance of flavors.

  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup barbeque sauce
  • 1 avocado (sliced)
  • 1 package flour tortillas
  • Cilantro (optional)

For the cabbage:

  • 3 cups red cabbage (thinly sliced)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp sugar
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Toss the cauliflower florets with olive oil and garlic powder.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through.
  4. In a bowl, massage the red cabbage with the salt for about 1 minute, until it starts to wilt. Drain any excess water.
