  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Chop cauliflower in small florets and add to a large bowl. Pour in chickpeas along with the buffalo sauce and toss to combine. Transfer this mixture to the baking sheet and roast for 20 - 25 minutes until cauliflower it starting to brown and chickpeas are starting to crisp up (stir halfway through).
  • Allow the veggies to cool while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  • Add avocado to a bowl and mash with a fork until smooth. Squeeze lime into the bowl and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Stir to combine.
  • Spread about 2 tablespoons of the avocado sauce on each tortilla. Top each with 2 tablespoons of quinoa and some of the cauli-chickpea mixture. Garnish with desired veggies and enjoy!


Turn it into a salad! The filling also makes a delicious salad topping. Use chopped romaine, the cauli-chickpea mixture, quinoa, diced avocado and finely sliced cabbage. Toss with lime juice and olive oil and enjoy!
