For the Cauliflower:

  • 1 large or 2 small heads of cauliflower - cut into florets
  • 3 large eggs
  • cup brown rice flour
  • cup all purpose flour
  • 2.5 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • salt + pepper

For the sauce:

For the tacos:

  • Tortillas or flatbread
  • 2 cups green cabbage - shredded
  • 1 cup purple cabbage - shredded
  • 10 ounces cherry tomatoes - halved
  • Fresh chopped cilantro
  • Green onions - chopped
  • Sriracha - for topping (optional)


First prepare the cauliflower

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Set up a station with 3 large bowls. In the first bowl sift together the brown rice flour and all purpose flour. In the second bowl, beat together the 3 eggs. Finally, in the last bowl add the panko bread crumbs with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Working in batches place some of the washed and still wet cauliflower in the flour bowl first. Toss to coat. Pick up the cauliflower (hands work best here) and shake off any excess flour. Gently place the coated cauliflower in the egg and toss to coat. Finally (again, hands work best), pick up the cauliflower and coat with the panko breadcrumbs.
  • Place each cauliflower floret on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Repeat until all cauliflower has been coated and prepared.
  • Place the prepared cauliflower in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the tops are slightly golden. Remove, flip the cauliflower and continue to bake an additional 5-10 minutes, or until golden all over. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
  • While the cauliflower cooks in the oven, prepare ingredients for the tacos- shred the cabbage, halve the tomatoes and chop the cilantro and green onions.
  • Finally, in a medium bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the sauce, and season to taste as needed. Store prepared sauce in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Build your tacos :) Start with a small layer of sauce followed by cabbage, bang bang cauliflower, more sauce, green onions and cilantro, tomatoes and (if you like things really spicy) extra Sriracha.
