I'll eat virtually anything if it's inside of a tortilla. The number of tacos I've eaten in my day is either astounding or disturbing depending on who you ask.

So yeah, you could say I'm an experienced taco consumer

But these roasted cauliflower and chickpea tacos with a tangy lime slaw babies were a whole different story compared to the tacos I've been slumming it with. The smoky roasted cauliflower and chickpeas are soft on the inside with crispy edges. The slaw is tangy and fresh, providing the perfect crunch on top.

But it's when you combine the two inside of a warm corn tortilla that the real magic happens.
