When kids help themselves, they help everyone. They'll be eager to load up their own taco, and if you're lucky, they may even want to help prep.


  • ⅔ cup olive oil

  • 4 tsp coriander

  • 2 tsp cumin

  • 2 tsp chili powder

  • 2 tsp onion powder

  • ¾ tsp salt, divided

  • 2 heads cauliflower, cut small

  • ½ cup lime juice

  • 3 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp chili-garlic sauce

  • ½ 397-g bag coleslaw

  • 1 cup cilantro, finely chopped

  • 8 small corn tortillas

  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced

  • ½ cup crumbled feta

  • lime wedges


  • Position racks in top and bottom thirds of oven. Preheat to 450F.

  • Stir olive oil with coriander, cumin, chili and onion powders, and ½ tsp salt in a large bowl. Add cauliflower to bowl and toss to coat well. Arrange cauliflower on 2 baking sheets, spreading pieces in a single layer (it’s OK if they touch). Roast in top and bottom thirds of oven, stirring halfway through and switching sheets, until edges are golden and crispy, about 25 min.

  • Whisk lime juice with brown sugar, chili-garlic sauce and remaining ¼ tsp salt in a large bowl. Stir in coleslaw and cilantro.

  • Lay tortillas on another baking sheet. Heat in top third of oven, 1 to 2 min. (You may need to do this in 2 batches.) Set out warm tortillas with cauliflower, coleslaw, avocado, feta, lime wedges and any other toppings you like.
