  • Cauliflower Walnut Taco Crumbles
  • Ingredients
    • Cooking spray
    • 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 powder (optional)
    • Pinch of cayenne for more heat (optional)

    1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. 1. Pulse all ingredients in a food processor until the mixture is evenly ground. 1. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through to prevent over-browning.

    Chef's Tips

    To save extra chipotles, 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.
