  1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). 
  2. Mix almond meal and ground spices in a medium-sized bowl to make a crumb. 
  3. In another bowl, mix together almond or coconut milk, brown rice flour and lime juice to make batter. Mix well.  
  4. Coat cauliflower florets in batter, a few at a time, then toss in almond meal spice mix. 
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. 
  6. While your crispy cauliflower is baking, prep your avocado dressing by adding avocado, cilantro, lime and salt to blender or food processor and blend until smooth. 
  7. Prep your cabbage slaw by mixing together sliced cabbage, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper in a bowl and allow to sit while cauliflower bakes. 
  8. Once your cauliflower is crisp, remove from oven and assemble your tacos! Serve with warm tortillas, lime wedges, and fresh coriander.
