Black bean and cauliflower tacos are the easy plant-based meal we all need right now. Tons of spices such as cumin, paprika and curry powder make this dish stand out from other bland vegan tacos along with a vegan version of lime crema. We liked this crema so much we wanted to put it on all of our noodles and veggies forever. Feel free to mix it up with your favorite taco toppings and add a starch to the starch pan if you’d like. This is a taco train we can all get on!
