We also made homemade pickled onions to serve with these tacos. Pickling onions at home is super easy and takes less than 10 minutes of active time + some waiting. Just slice red onion and mix it with equal parts vinegar and water a small teaspoon of salt and sugar and some extra spices if you want. Then just let it rest for 2 hours and that’s it.

Coat the cauliflower florets with the sauce. Then cover with panko. Spread on a baking pan and take to the oven.
