Tacos with cauliflower and beans mole and sour cream

Tacos with cauliflower and beans, mole, and sour cream are a healthy fast food idea for vegetarians.

Cauliflower, black bean tacos are ideal for weight loss. Because it is low in calories, contains hardly any fat and the fiber it has satiates well.

And thanks to the dark bittersweet chocolate and smoky paprika, the California-Mexican street food gets a wonderfully tart flavor and signature color. As an alternative to chocolate, you can also refine the cauliflower bean mole with a little cocoa powder – this makes the tart note even more intense.
