Serves: 4

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Total time: 45 minutes



  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into bite-sized florets

  • 8 small tortillas

  • 1 ripe avocado, diced

  • 100g cherry tomatoes, diced

  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced

  • Fresh coriander, chopped

  • 100g mixed salad leaves

For the homemade BBQ sauce:

  • 200g tomato ketchup

  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • A pinch of chilli flakes (optional)

For the vegan sour cream:



  1. Begin by making the BBQ sauce: In a saucepan over medium heat, combine all BBQ sauce ingredients. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens. Set aside to cool.

  2. For the vegan sour cream, blend the soaked cashews, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, water, and salt in a high-speed blender until smooth. Adjust the consistency with more water if necessary. Chill until ready to serve.

  3. Preheat your oven to 200°C (fan-assisted). Toss the cauliflower florets with olive oil, half of the homemade BBQ sauce, and roast for 20 minutes until tender and caramelised.

  4. Warm the tortillas in a dry pan over medium heat for 30 seconds on each side.

  5. Assemble the tacos by spreading a dollop of vegan sour cream on each tortilla, add salad leaves, and top with the glazed cauliflower.

  6. Add diced avocado, tomatoes, red onion, and finish with a sprinkle of fresh coriander.

  7. Serve immediately with the remaining BBQ sauce and extra vegan sour cream on the side.


Additional Tips:

  • For extra heat, add a few dashes of hot sauce to the BBQ sauce mixture.


Allergy information / alternatives:

  • For a nut-free vegan sour cream, substitute soaked cashews with sunflower seeds.
