Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos with Cilantro Coleslaw

If there’s one type of meal that I could eat everyday, it would be tacos. Well, maybe not every day. I feel like tacos should be placed into their own food pyramid. There are numerous variations and the toppings are endless. The best part about tacos (other than the taste) is that they can be made for any type of food allergy or diet. So when I came across these Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower tacos I immediately started salivating. I mean damn these look soo good! These tacos by far are my favorite homemade tacos. They are packed with flavor and are irresistible. Top these bad boys with quick cilantro lime coleslaw or salsa and dig in! Although I would recommend both.

*This recipe can be found in the Thug Kitchen Cookbook, which is awesome!*
