By Dishing Out Health

These tacos take the finger-licking beauty of a BBQ wing experience and wrap it in a tortilla. Balanced by a creamy sauce and crunchy fixings, they check every box for a top-tier taco.


  • 6 cups cauliflower florets (from 1 medium head cauliflower)
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 1/3 cup store-bought or homemade BBQ sauce
  • 8 tortillas, warmed
  • Suggested garnishes: shredded purple cabbage, sliced avocado, extra cilantro

Green Tahini Sauce

  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF. Arrange cauliflower on a baking sheet and toss with 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper. Roast for 30 minutes, tossing once halfway through.
  2. Remove from oven and brush cauliflower with BBQ sauce. Place back in the oven for 10 more minutes.
  3. While cauliflower bakes, prepare Green Tahini Sauce:
  4. Combine cilantro, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt, and black pepper in a small food processor or blender; blend until texture is like pesto. Add 3 Tbsp. water and continue blending until smooth and creamy. (If sauce is still too thick, add more water as needed in 1 Tbsp. increments.)
  5. Toast or warm tortillas over a gas flame or in a cast iron skillet. Spread a layer of green tahini sauce on tortilla and arrange roasted cauliflower overtop. Garnish with shredded cabbage, sliced avocado, and fresh cilantro. Add a final drizzle of tahini sauce.
