Cauliflower Tacos with Romesco Sauce

I ordered these unique tacos at Bartaco in Nashville and let me tell you, they were good!  The description on the menu simply said Cauliflower Tacos with Romesco Sauce so in order to recreate I had to find a recipe for the sauce.   I added coleslaw as a bottom layer but you can just keep it simple and add a bit of cilantro and let the cauliflower be the star.

Cauliflower Tacos

            Small tortillas
1          head of Cauliflower, cut into small pieces.

Roast the cauliflower pieces in a 350 degree oven until slightly browned (15-20 minutes).  Take out and put aside.

While cauliflower is roasting, make the Romesco Sauce, or make the sauce the day before.

Pour the Romesco sauce onto the cauliflower and mix to make sure every piece is coated.  When ready to serve, just heat up the mixture and make the tacos.  I suggest
adding a bit of your favorite hot sauce for a little extra kick.
