Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower, stem removed and cut into florets
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons old bay seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 cup unsweetened soy milk (or other unsweetened milk)
  • 3/4 cup fine cornmeal
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup vegan mayo of choice
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 8 warmed tortillas
  • Avocado, Lime Crema or other toppings as desired

Instructions

  1. Place the flour, old bay seasoning, garlic powder, salt and paprika in a medium bowl. Place the milk in a separate bowl and the cornmeal in another separate third bowl.
  2. Dip the cauliflower florets into the flour mixture, then the milk, then the cornmeal. Continue with the rest of the cauliflower.
  3. Place the prepared cauliflower in an air fryer basket and cook for 15 minutes at 350 degrees, flipping once.
  4. While the cauliflower is cooking, whisk together the shredded cabbage, cilantro, mayo, lime, maple syrup and a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Season to taste, as desired.
  5. Warm the tortillas, then add in the cauliflower, slaw and toppings of choice.

Notes

To make the lime crema, as pictured here, thin vegan sour cream or plain greek yogurt with lime juice, zest and a pinch of salt and ground cumin.
