These fresh, healthy tacos are a veggie version of Baja-style fish tacos. Soft corn tortillas cradle, crisp-tender cauliflower (after an initial blanching, the florets are tossed with olive oil and spices and roasted in a hot oven until lightly browned). Sharing tortilla space with the cauliflower: a crisp, lemony cilantro slaw, with red cabbage and carrot. The whole thing is drizzled with Mexican crema or sour cream, seasoned with lemon juice and zest. For dessert, try washing it down with our classic, easy Key Lime Pie recipe.
What to buy: Meyer lemons are the ubiquitous California backyard citrus. They’re sweeter, milder, and more fragrant than the more common Eureka lemons though, if you can’t find Meyers, a standard lemon will work just fine.
