Let’s “taco-bout” why this recipe is called “Bang Bang.” Simply put, it’s because each bite contains an explosion of bright flavors and textures that are guaranteed to “wow” any taco aficionado.

Completely meatless, but incredibly filling thanks to freshly breaded cauliflower, these tacos exceed all boundaries of flavor and color with a homemade veggie slaw and simple Bang Bang sauce. For those that love a little kick to their food, I have a feeling you’ll use this sauce on more than just these tacos.
