Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 2
Add Carrots (3), Cauliflower Florets (1 1/2 cups), Sweet Onion (1/2), Pecan Halves (1 cup), Garlic (2 cloves), Chili Powder (1 tsp), Ground Cumin (as needed), Chipotle Seasoning (as needed), and Sea Salt (as needed) to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse all ingredients until the mixture is evenly ground yet still has some smaller chunks, approximately 10-15 seconds.

Pulse all ingredients until the mixture is evenly ground yet still has some smaller chunks, approximately 10-15 seconds.
step 3
Transfer vegan taco "meat" to a greased baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Bake for 20-22 minutes, stirring halfway through to prevent over-browning. You want the carrots and cauliflower to be cooked but not mushy, leaving it with a slightly crunchy texture.
step 4
Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then divide evenly among Butter Lettuce (12 pieces), approximately 1/4 cup mixture for each lettuce leaf.

step 5
Top with Avocado (1) and Fresh Cilantro (to taste), then serve! If you're not worried about keeping this vegan, sour cream or Cotija cheese would be great additions as well!
