Veggie Taquitos


Buying a home is fun.


Throw in a global pandemic and it’s just a barrel of monkeys!


We are moving to Colorado…..someday.


And we will need some shelter. So we had a call with our realtor tonight to talk through the landscape given COVID-19. We had high hopes of flying out there in the next couple of weeks to house hunt. That’s obviously not happening. Look, being a military family, I’m kewl doing things on the fly. Buy a house sight unseen in a neighborhood I’ve never been in? Honestly, I can roll with it. No biggie. Really, it just isn’t that difficult for me to make huge life decisions like six-figure investments. I’d pull the trigger tonight if I found a house I like. I can NOT however make up my mind on where I want to order takeout from tomorrow. It’s like do I want french fries or Mexican food, it’s just too big for one person to decide on her own.


But really do y’all want to pick out a house for me?



Time: 1 hour (prep + cooking) | Serves: approx. 16-20 taquitos


  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 8 oz. of cremini or white mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 4-5 baby carrots, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup of sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 3/4 cup of raw walnuts
  • 1 can of black beans, rinsed + drained
  • 1 tbsp. of cumin
  • 1 tbsp. of chili powder
  • 1 tsp. of smoked paprika
  • S+P, to taste
  • 16 -20 corn tortillas
  • Guacamole, for serving
  • Cilantro

How to:

  • In a food processor, combine sun-dried tomatoes + walnuts, pulse until crumbly + combined, set aside in a bowl
  • In the food processor, combine cauliflower + mushrooms + onion + carrots + garlic, process until well-combined + crumbly
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat
  • Add cauliflower mix + S+P, cook for 10 minutes
  • Add sun-dried tomato mix + beans + cumin + chili powder + paprika + S+P, cook another 4-5 minutes
  • Preheat oven to 425
  • Warm the tortillas so they’re pliable – I wrap a couple in a wet paper towel + microwave for 15-20 seconds
  • To assemble, place some of the veggie + bean mix to one side of a tortilla + roll length wise, placing seam side down on a lined baking sheet
  • Repeat
  • Spray with a lil cooking spray + bake for about 20 minutes
  • Serve warm with cilantro + guacamole
  • Enjoy your nice, light lunch of 14 taquitos
