  • 7.5 ml (½ tbsp) of smoked paprika

  • 7.5 ml (½ tbsp) of chili powder

  • 2.5 ml (½ tsp) of garlic powder

  • 2.5 ml (½ tsp) of onion powder

  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) of olive oil

  • 4 large whole grain tortillas (or 8 small ones)

  • 500 ml (2 cups) of grated mozzarella cheese with less than 20% m.f. (about 120g - 4oz)

  • 60 ml (¼ cup) of chopped cilantro


  1. In a small bowl, zest and juice half of the lime. Reserve the other half of the lime.
  2. Mix the rest of the sauce ingredients. Reserve in the refrigerator.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the cauliflower, chickpeas, spices, and oil.
  4. Place the mixture in the basket of the hot air fryer and cook for 15 to 20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through for even cooking.
  5. Top each tortilla with red cabbage, followed by the chickpea and cauliflower mixture. Add the sauce, grated cheese, and cilantro.
  6. Cut the remaining half lime into wedges and serve with the tacos.


To obtain "hard taco shells":

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Place a standard muffin pan upside down to use the back of the mold, then insert the tortillas into the spaces between the cups of the mold, folding them to form a taco shell shape.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden and crispy.
  4. Remove the shells and let cool on a rack.


Keeps for 5 days in the refrigerator, in an airtight container. Do not freeze.
