Tacos have always been Nic’s signature dish. One of the first dinners we hosted as a couple was with tacos… and not much has changed except swapping the ground beef for ground turkey, and then swapping ground turkey for cauliflower. And it’s one of the best glow-ups for a recipe that we have worked through.
But these tacos add a little more. My inspirations comes from Taco John’s Taco Bravo, which combines the soft taco and a hard shell taco….. a little crunch, a little warm soft tortilla, and a lot more flavor and plant- packed than normal.
With an endless amount of toppings, this recipe is creatively and uniquely beautiful and offers a rainbow on your plate in the form of a taco.
