Ingredients

For the Ranch Dressing:

  • 1 cup cashews - cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours or overnight, then drained
  • 3/4 cup dairy free milk, plus more if needed
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 teaspons onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Tacos:

  • 1 head cauliflower - cut into florets, probably about 3 cups
  • 15 ounces chickpeas - canned, chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup tomato, diced
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 10 tortillas - vegan corn tortillas of your choice, hard or soft
  • 2 ounces baby spinach, rinsed well

Instructions

To Make the Ranch Dressing:

  • Put the soaked cashews in a food processor. Add all the remaining 8 dressing ingredients
  • Process until smooth. Add more milk, if needed, to get the consistency of dressing.
  • The flavors will meld after resting in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, but you can still use it immediately.  Pour into a container and store in the refrigerator. The ranch dressing will keep in the refrigerator for about 2 weeks.

To Make the Tacos:

  • Steam the cauliflower florets for 15 minutes.
  • Let cool and break up into very small pieces. Place in a large bowl.
  • Add the chickpeas, tomato, hot sauce, salt, and pepper.  Mix well.
  • If you have soft tacos, fry them in hot oil for a minute or two on each side. Fold over to drain and cool in a taco shape.  If you are using hard tacos, you are ready to go and to go oil free.

To Assemble:

  • Spoon the filling into each taco, add baby spinach, and drizzle with ranch dressing. Serve.
