These Vegan BBQ Cauliflower Tacos are crispy, saucy, and the perfect comfort food. What’s better than baked BBQ coated cauliflower served in a warm tortilla? These tacos make for a fun and unique dinner! 


  • 1 small head cauliflower (about 4 cups
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour  
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 2 cups bread crumbs 
  • 1.5 cups BBQ sauce 
  • Corn tortillas (or tortilla of choice)

For serving (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  2. Chop the cauliflower into bite-sized florets. Chop small enough so that you can comfortably eat them in a taco!
  3. Prep the batter and breadcrumbs. In a mixing bowl, make a batter by whisking together the almond milk, flour, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. It should be nice and thick. In a second bowl, add the breadcrumbs. 
  4. Batter and bread the cauliflower florets. Coat a floret in the batter, letting any excess batter drip off. Then roll the floret in the breadcrumbs until evenly coated. Place on a greased or lined baking tray. Continue this step until all the florets are coated. 
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven. 
  6. Add the BBQ sauce to a bowl, and evenly coat each piece of cauliflower.
  7. Return the florets to the baking tray and bake an additional 15 minutes. 
  8. While the cauliflower is baking, warm up some corn tortillas in a skillet over medium-high heat, for about 20-30 seconds on each side. 
  9. Serve immediately. I love eating these tacos with a little bit of cashew sour cream, and chopped pickles (yes, really), and cilantro.
