  • 2 eggs
  • 2 t chili powder
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs I used a gluten-free kind
  • 1 head cauliflower cut into bite sized florets
  • oil spray - as needed
  • 12 tortillas I used all corn
  • Mango Salsa optional topping
  • diced cabbage optional topping


  • In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and spices.
  • In another shallow bowl, put your bread crumbs.
  • Dredge one cauliflower floret at a time through the egg mixture and then into the bread crumbs.  Once floret is fully covered place into air fryer basket. Be sure to put the vegetables in a single layer and not to over crowd within the basket. 
  • Give the cauliflower florets a spritz of oil, if you wish. This will help the breading to crisp up. This step is optional.
  • Air fry the cauliflower bites at 350 degrees F for 14 minutes.  At the 7 minute mark (half way through the cooking process) remove the air fryer basket and gently shake the veggie pieces.
  • When air fryer timer goes off, you can construct your tacos.  Equally divide the air fried cauliflower pieces onto the 12 warmed tortillas.  Top with your favorite toppings: I prefer diced purple cabbage and mango salsa.


Tips for Air Fryer Tacos

  • If you aren’t a cauliflower fan, you can sub in another vegetable like zucchini planks.
  • You can make this recipe vegan by subbing OUT the two eggs and replacing then with ¼ cup of maple syrup.
  • This recipe does reheat well. Just reheat your cauliflower bites first, then your tortilla.
  • If you do not have bread crumbs, you can always smash/crumble some crackers or even a Chex style cereal.
