It’s no surprise that my husband and I have been eating a more plant-based diet lately. I have to say, I’m loving it.
I feel lighter, healthier and the food we’re eating is tasty and filling.
The only problem is sometimes you have to get creative. With a meat centred diet, you know what your protein is going to be and then you can drum up some sides to go with it. Not as easy sometimes with veggies.
Which is FINE…except sometimes my mind is not in the creative space it should be…so I turn to my awesome collection of cookbooks for some inspiration.
I have a multitude of cookbooks. I would rather flip through a cookbook than read a magazine. The pictures, the recipes-they inspire me and make me hungry. Things I do not mind. I LOVE COOKBOOKS.
So one uninspired night, I was flipping through one of my current favourite cookbooks: “Thug Kitchen“. It’s vegan and it is so f**king awesome (You’ll understand why I curse when you go to their website).
I stumbled upon their recipe for Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos. YES PLEASE. But I didn’t have all of the ingredients. Dammit.
Oh hello creativity! There you are!
- 1 head cauliflower, cut into bite size pieces
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- 1 tbsp. lime juice
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder (or regular chili powder but this stuff is awesome)
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- pinch sea salt
- 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
- a bunch of whole wheat tortillas
- Toppings! Guacamole, tomatoes, shredded lettuce
- Vegan cheese sauce…I love THIS ONE or THIS ONE
You won’t miss the meat! And you won’t have that UGHHHHHHHH I’M SO FULLLLLLLLL feeling afterwards I promise! Try them…you just might fall for them!
Oh and P.S. they’re messy, so once you start eating one…you have to finish it…oh darn.
