I’ve been roasting veggies with our family’s favorite homemade spice mix (no onion or garlic, just wicked good flavor!) for forever, it seems, and serving them as a side dish. Here, they’re the main event.

Cauliflower, broccoli, chickpeas … really whatever you have on hand and happen to love, it’s even better with this spice mix and tucked into a homemade gluten free flour tortilla. Actually, what wouldn’t be better tucked into a homemade gluten free flour tortilla? (rhetorical question, I know)

There’s no wrong here — only all kinds of right, healthy, flavorful fillings inside a taco (or 3) or a bowl.

ESPECIALLY when you top it all with this yummy sauce reminiscent of your favorite General Tso’s sauce from that Chinese place down the street where you can’t eat at anymore.

While I’ve never made a sauce like this, it wasn’t anything too complicated, especially considering how delish it is! I was inspired to try making my own sauce by my friend Karen from Healthy GF Family blog. My version is garlic-free and has its own twist, but she gets all the credit for putting this idea in my head.

As a matter of fact, Karen also has a great recipe for Buffalo Cauliflower + Chickpea tacos with a homemade vegan ranch sauce. MMMmmm. Check out her blog for even more great gluten free dinner options!
