Serves 4 people.
- Quick soak your cashews by covering them completely with very hot, but not boiling water. Set aside for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse.
- Place your sliced red onion and juice of two small limes into a mason jar with a pinch of salt. Shake to evenly coak. Set aside for 15-20 minutes, shaking the jar every 5 minutes or so to evenly coat the juice. You can also set the jar upside down for half the time to make sure all of the onions get pickled.
- Add cauliflower, garlic, vegetable broth, paprika, oregano and cumin to a cast iron skillet or large pan on medium high heat.
- Bring to a simmer and stir frequently until all of the vegetable broth has cooked off.
- Then add olive oil and sear the cauliflower until some of the edges have started to brown.
- Meanwhile, add your soaked cashews, chipotle pepper in adobo, water and lime juice to a high powered blender or food processor and process until fully combined and creamy. If you’re adding nutritional yeast, add that as well. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Heat up your tortillas. Then assemble your tacos with cauliflower, cashew crema sauce and quick pickled red onions. Top with cilantro, pepitas and any other toppings you might like! Serve & enjoy!
