Cauliflower Walnut Taco Crumbles
Adapted recipe from: Pinch of Yum
3 cups cauliflower florets
2 cups whole walnuts
2 individual chipotles in adobo sauce
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. lime juice (optional)
½ tsp. garlic or onion powder (optional)
Pinch of cayenne for more heat (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 375°. Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until the mixture is evenly ground.
- Transfer to a greased baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through to prevent over-browning.
- Serve in tacos, burritos, quesadillas or bowls.
Yield: 6 servings
Pro Tip: Freeze extra chipotles in adobo sauce. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a fork to strain, place peppers on parchment paper. Top each with a spoonful of sauce. Freeze. Once frozen, peel peppers off of parchment paper and place in a ziptop bag for later use.
