Guidance for all dosha types, budgets, and life

Sample Recipe: Cauli Tacos
Prep time: 5 minutes/Cook time: 6 minutes/Makes 4 tacos/Season: Summer, Autumn/Dosha: Vata, Pitta
Baja tacos are on most every menu in Southern California. With cauliflower, you can make a vegetarian version that supports all three doshas. For a "Baja" crunch, roll the florets in rice, almond, or coconut flour and then sauté.
1. Melt the ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Once sizzling hot, add the florets. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the florets to a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and paprika.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lime juice, and brine.
4. Assemble the tacos: Spoon cauliflower onto the center of a chapati and add a dollop of avocado mash. Drizzle with the white sauce. Repeat to make the rest of the tacos and serve.
Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro. Pair with Mango Cabbage Salad (page 106).
