Possibly my most favorite taco recipe to date, Cauliflower Al Pastor Tacos!! I know, I know, YUM!
2 cloves garlic minced or grated
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons paprika
2 chipotle peppers adobo
1/2 cup pineapple juice
¼ cup white vinegar
2 cups fresh pineapple chunks divided
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 head cauliflower cut into florets
½ of a sweet onion thinly sliced
1 jalapeno seeded + diced
½ cup fresh cilantro chopped + more for serving
12 toasted corn or flour tortillas
4 ounces feta or goat cheese crumbled
lime wedges for serving
In a high-powered blender or food processor combine the garlic, chili powder, paprika, chipotle chilies, pineapple juice, vinegar and 1 cup of the pineapple chunks. Blend until completely smooth. Set the pineapple sauce aside.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Add the cauliflower and onions, season with salt + pepper. Cook for 12-15 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender and the onions have caramelized. Reduce the heat to low stir in the pineapple sauce, the remaining cup of pineapple chunks and the jalapeno. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until the sauce has reduced and coats the cauliflower, there will still be sauce left in the pan, this is good. Remove from the heat and stir in the cilantro.
Divide the cauliflower among the warmed tortillas, drizzling each taco with the remaining sauce left in the pan. Top each taco with fresh cilantro, lime juice and cheese. EAT
