Spicy Cauliflower and Walnut "Chorizo" Tacos [Food Processor Attachment]

Replace regular pork Chorizo with this plant-based version made uniquely in the Vitamix. Either wet-chop in your traditional container or use the Food Processor to process the walnuts and cauliflower, then blend the adobo sauce before combining and roasting.


  • 6 cups (600 g) cauliflower, cut into florets, about 1/2 head
  • 2 cups (200 g) walnuts
  • 1 medium (125 g) onion, peeled, quartered
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, plus 2 tbsp. reserved sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, optional
  • shredded cabbage, 6 servings
  • diced onion, 6 servings
  • diced tomato, 6 servings
  • 12 corn flour tortillas


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C)
  2. Fit the Food Processor with the Multi-Use Blade.  Place cauliflower and walnuts into the Vitamix container and secure the lid. Pulse 6-8 times. Stop, remove the lid, and scrape down the sides of the Work Bowl. Secure the lid and pulse an additional 6-8 times or until the mixture is roughly chopped into small pieces. Remove mixture and place in a large bowl.
  3. Place the remaining ingredients (reserving the cabbage, onion, tomato and tortillas for serving) into the Vitamix blending container and secure the lid. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend for 35-45 seconds.
  4. Add the adobo sauce to the chopped cauliflower and walnut mixture, tossing gently to combine. Spread mixture out evenly onto a 1/2 sheet tray sprayed with non-stick spray. Place in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, then remove and turn mixture with a spatula. Return mixture to oven and cook an additional 15-20 minutes.
  5. Remove mixture from oven and assemble each corn tortilla with a small helping, topped with shredded cabbage, diced tomatoes, and onions.
