Spicy Grilled Vegetable Tacos

My brain is completely stuffed with tacos. Every single time I try to think of something besides tacos, I think of tacos. And it makes sense, considering my cookbook, Taco! Taco! Taco! just dropped (that makes me sound like a hip pop star, right? No? HA!). So, you would think I would be creating a recipe for something other than tacos, but nope, I’m not. I’ve had this weird craving for tacos stuffed with veggies, so yep, I came up with these Spicy Grilled Vegetable Tacos.

Preheat the oven to 425’F and line a large baking sheet with foil. Stick the pan in the oven while the oven preheats. Toss the cauliflower with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Carefully remove the pan from the oven. Spread the cauliflower out evenly on the baking sheet and roast for 30-35 minutes in the oven, stirring once halfway through cooking time. Drizzle with tahini and garnish with parsley and pine nuts.

Ultimate Roasted Cauliflower

The cauliflower craze is still going strong and I’m happily enjoying it! Ricing cauliflower has been a pretty big deal lately, but I’m a big fan of roasting big, beautiful florets of it. That caramelization just can’t be beat. And I’m pretty sure you’re going to love my version, lovingly called, “Ultimate Roasted Cauliflower.” Why? Well, read on!

Rainbow Carrot Bundt Cake

Every Easter I always try to make some delicious dessert. It usually involves coconut, because, I for some reason, associate that with spring and Easter.
