 When I started testing this recipe, Sofia couldn’t stop eating cauliflower pieces every time she passed by the kitchen counter. She was like… “Mom…what is this??? It is delish!! That was my clue to make it again and again until I was super happy with the results so I could share it with you.

I made these crunchy cauliflower tacos with a mix of flour, spices, and water. Then I topped each cauliflower piece with Sprouted Corn Flakes from One Degree Organics. One of my favorite brands of all time. I love their products, their philosophy, the way they know and treat their farmers… It is an outstanding company, you have to go out and look for their products.
