  2. Cauliflower - Chop cauliflower into florets. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Make slaw - Toss coleslaw mix with first part of cooking oil and lime juice (portion for the tacos). (Can be done 1 day ahead)

Really liked the tacos! Like others, I expected more of the slaw but it was alright as a veg filler. The roasted cauliflower was really meh. I didn't want to finish it. :/
