1 cup cashews
3 cups water
2 tablespoons salt, or to taste
2 teaspoons lime juice, or to taste
In a bowl, soak the cashews in water, cover and set aside overnight at room temperature for the cashews to soften. The next day, strain the cashews, reserving the water. In a blender, puree the cashews with enough water to form a smooth sauce with the texture of heavy cream. Season with salt and lime juice to taste. This makes a generous cup of cream, which will keep, covered and refrigerated, up to 5 days.
1 small red onion, very thinly sliced
¼ cup lime juice
1 tablespoon salt
In a nonreactive bowl, stir together the onion, lime juice and salt until the salt is dissolved and all of the onion is covered. Set the mixture aside to marinate for at least 20 minutes before assembling the tacos. The pickled onions will keep, 3 to 5 days, covered and refrigerated.
Grilled white corn:
2 ears white corn, husks removed
Olive oil, for brushing
½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
Brush the corn with a light coat of olive oil and sprinkle over salt and pepper to taste. Cook the corn over a grill or grill pan heated over medium-high heat until the corn is charred and tender on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat and cut the kernels from the cobs. You should have about 1 cup corn kernels. Set aside.
4 cups colored cauliflower florets, from a mixture of purple, orange, green and white cauliflower heads
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, toss the cauliflower florets with the olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, until evenly combined. Spread the cauliflower onto a rimmed baking sheet and roast until slightly charred and tender, about 15 minutes, depending on the size of the florets.
Roasted rainbow cauliflower tacos:
1 teaspoon olive oil
Prepared roasted cauliflower
Prepared grilled white corn
Lime juice, for seasoning
6 corn tortillas, warmed
¾ cup prepared cashew cream, or to taste
Prepared pickled onions
Cilantro leaves, for garnish
Crushed roasted cashews, for garnish
1 to 2 radishes, thinly sliced, for garnish
Lime wedges, for serving
Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat until hot, and add the olive oil. Add the cauliflower and corn, stirring until warmed through. Remove from heat. Taste and season the mixture as desired with salt and lime juice.
To assemble the tacos, drizzle about 2 tablespoons cashew cream over each warmed tortilla. Spoon over about 1/2 cup of the cauliflower corn mixture. Top the mixture with a pinch of pickled onions, and garnish with cilantro leaves, roasted cashews and radish slices. Serve the tacos with lime wedges.
Makes 6 Tacos.
