Roasted Beer-and-Lime Cauliflower Tacos With Cilantro Coleslaw


  1. For the slaw:
    1/2 head of green cabbage (about 1/2 pound)
    1 small carrot
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    2 tablespoons rice vinegar
    1 teaspoon olive oil
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  1. For the tacos:
    1 head cauliflower (about 1 pound)
    3/4 cup beer
    1/4 cup vegetable broth
    1 tablespoon lime juice
    1 1/2 teaspoons tamari or soy sauce
    1 1/2 tablespoons chipotle hot sauce
    1 to 2 garlic cloves, sliced
    1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    Pinch of salt
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1/2 yellow onion, chopped
    6 corn tortillas
    1 avocado, sliced
    Salsa, for serving


  1. To make the slaw: Cut the cabbage into the thinnest strips you can, and make sure those pieces are no longer than 2 inches. This is a great time to get good with your knife if you are looking for a silver f*cking lining in all that chopping. Chop the carrot into thin matchsticks of the same length. Got that sh*t down now, right? In a small bowl, mix together the lime juice, vinegar, oil, and salt. Add the dressing right before you are going to eat and toss that sh*t well. Fold in the cilantro just before serving.
    1. To make the tacos: Crank your oven to 400°F. Grab a rimmed baking sheet. Chop the cauliflower into small florets no bigger than a quarter. In a saucepan over medium heat, warm the beer, broth, lime juice, tamari, hot sauce, and garlic. Add the cauliflower, and simmer for about 1 1/2 minutes. Drain.
    2. Toss the spices, salt, and olive oil together in a large bowl. Add the cauliflower and onion, and stir till those f*ckers are coated. Dump it on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake until browned, stirring halfway, about 20 minutes.
    3. To assemble the tacos, warm the tortillas in the oven or microwave for a hot minute, and then pile them high with the cauliflower filling, slices of avocado, some of the slaw, and plenty of salsa.
