Veggie lovers will devour this new take on a vegetarian taco filled with roasted cauliflower, crispy chickpeas and flavorful cilantro pesto. As an added bonus, it’s also gluten-free. This delicious dish gives you a great excuse to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, coming up this Saturday, May 5 (and follow this link for more recipes for celebrating Cinco de Mayo, vegan style ). Recipe contributed by the Betty Crocker  company (isn’t it cool that they’re developing vegan recipes?). If you’d like, pass around your favorite salsa to top these, or as a VegKitchen reader suggests in the first comment below, some homemade Cashew Cream. 
Makes: 8 tacos, 4 generous servings of 2 per person, or 8 moderate servings.
Crispy Chick Peas
Heat oven to 425° F.
Place cauliflower florets in large bowl. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir until evenly coated. Arrange on large cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes; stir. Bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until cauliflower is tender and browned.
Meanwhile, mix crispy chick peas ingredients. Spread on 15x10x1-inch pan. Bake 15 minutes; stir. Bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until chick peas are slightly browned and crispy.
Meanwhile, in food processor, place all pesto ingredients except oil. Cover; process using quick on-and-off motions. With food processor running, slowly drizzle in 1/4 cup oil through feed tube, stopping halfway through to stir mixture with spatula. Remove pesto to small bowl.
Spoon about 1 tablespoon pesto on each tortilla; top with about 1/2 cup roasted cauliflower and 1 tablespoon crispy chick peas. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired. Serve with remaining chickpeas.
