  1. Holly,
    I’m on a carbohydrate restricted diet and I would love to try your recipe for the California Tacos. The nutrition information states there’s 46g carbs per serving. If I eliminate the tortillas do you know what the carbs per serving would be?

    1. Virginia, I calculate that it would be 15g, 10g of which is the cauliflower. As mentioned, nutrition information is an estimate only and will vary based on actual ingredients used. You may want to try an online nutrition counter so that you can put in your actual ingredients to be sure :).

  2. This was a hit with the family! It’s lighter than traditional meat tacos (in a good way), but still filling and flavorful. My medium sized Cauliflower was around 7 cups chopped. Also I’d suggest tasting as you are putting in the lime – I used well less than the juice of one full one.5 stars
