Tips for making vegan tacos.
Use a more flavorful beer if you want the taste of the beer to have an impact on your tacos.
I like a more of a dark beer for example.
Here are some more great tips for you.
- If your batter has trouble sticking to the cauliflower try adding a bit of vegan egg. A flaxseed egg substitute can be made using one tablespoon of flaxseed meal with three tablespoons of water (you may not need the entire flaxseed egg for this recipe.)
- Make this recipe low in carbohydrates by using a low carb flour rather than all purpose flour.
- Do you not want to use beer in your batter? Suitable alternatives to beer include apple cider vinegar or seltzer water. Alcohol free beer does not always do well in a better.
How to prepare cauliflower for this recipe.
To make this recipe you will need one head of cauliflower.
Choose an average sized cauliflower that has no spots on it and is also firm to the touch.
Break off the florets when your are ready to roast the cauliflower.
Rinse the cauliflower in cold water, I prefer to soak mine for a few minutes before rinsing.
Allow the cauliflower to drain and then use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel to pat the florets dry.
How to store leftover cauliflower tacos.
Store the leftover beer battered cauliflower in an airtight container or zip top bag.
If stored correctly in a refrigerator, it should keep for a few days.
