While veggies roast, mix cabbage, red onion, red wine vinegar, and ½ teaspoon salt in a bowl. Set aside. Keep the pan warm with foil after removing it from the oven.  

Step 7

Blend avocado, sour cream, ¼ cup cilantro, jalapeño, black pepper, 1 teaspoon sea salt, and ½ lime juice in a food processor. Make the mixture smooth.  

Step 8

Heat the tortillas in a skillet for 10–15 seconds per side.Put tacos together: Set out two hot tortillas. Put some roasted cauliflower filling on each tortilla.
