Healthy Veggie Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos? Probably it’s one of the most favorite and popular Mexican dishes that have ever existed. It’s always packed with a variety of awesome ingredients from a flavorful carne asada to a vibrant pico de gallo. We were so inspired by this cool dish that decided to create our veggie version with roasted cauliflower, crunchy radishes, spicy cabbage chipotle slaw, and homemade salsa verde on the side.

These Veggie Tacos is a perfect choice for the Meatless Monday, and they taste amazing with a bottle of Corona or Modelo light. Even our carnivore friends are crazy about this dish. It has all chances to become our favorite summer party recipe!

TIP: This tacos are veggie friendly. Grilled zucchinis, kernel corn, and fresh salsa will be an incredible addition to the recipe.
