After chopping the cauliflower into small bite-sized items, we coat it within the jerk spice rub with oil and coconut aminos (for a bit sauciness and further sweetness). When it comes out of the oven, the cauliflower is tender and has crispy roasted edges (swoon!).

  • In the meantime, add the drained black beans to a small saucepan. Cowl and prepare dinner over medium warmth till heat, about 5 minutes. Take away the lid and proceed cooking (uncovered) to evaporate many of the liquid (so your tortillas do not grow to be soggy and break aside). Take away from the warmth and put aside.

  • Slice your avocado and put together any further non-compulsory toppings — we suggest mango, pink onion, cilantro, and lime. Mix the selfmade sizzling sauce if you happen to haven’t already.

Reheat cauliflower in a 350-degree F (176 C) oven and beans in a saucepan or within the microwave till heat. Not freezer pleasant.

*We suggest utilizing a candy, fruity, not intensely spicy sizzling sauce and serving generously as a result of it supplies the “sauciness” for these tacos and properly balances the opposite drier parts.
*To make this recipe faster for weeknights, put together the DIY Jamaican Jerk Seasoning and Zesty Mango Habanero Scorching Sauce upfront. Prep time doesn’t embody making these parts. They require an additional ~half-hour to make.
*Diet data is a tough estimate calculated with corn tortillas and with out non-compulsory components.
