Veggie tacos with spicy cauliflower bites, avocado cream and jalapeño popcorn + a giveaway
Sponsored. This post is made in collaboration with OK Snacks.
I have been so excited to share the recipe for these yummy colorful tacos with you guys, I had them for dinner both today and yesterday and I still can’t get enough – they are just that good! I know they are quite unconventional and not very authentic, but I promise that they are beyond delicious and a definite must-try! They are so full of flavor from the cauliflower bites and I love how the popcorn added some extra crunch ♥
I have been wanting to try the BBQ cauliflower recipe from my cookbook in tacos for quite a while now, so when I received a big box with lots of flavored popcorn from OK Snacks and a challenge to get creative and make recipes with them, then I just knew it was the perfect time to adapt the recipe for a yummy taco version!
The popcorn comes in 5 different flavors – caramel & salty, jalapeño cheese & onion, sweet chili, sweet & salty and licorice – at first I thought I would go for the more traditional option with a cake topped with thick caramel sauce and caramel popcorn (how yum does that sounds?!), but as soon as I tried the different flavors, then I just knew that I had to get creative with the jalapeño flavored popcorn – they are my absolutely favorite out the 5 flavors! I actually had a problem saving a bag of the jalapeño flavored popcorn for this post, I pretty much ate much of them + the sweet chili ones right away, I am a bit popcorn obsessed and I really love the more savory flavors ♥
You can find all 5 flavors of the OK Snacks popcorn in most SPAR, MENY and MIN KØBMAND stores.
I kicked off a little giveaway over on my Instagram earlier this week, where 10 of you have the chance to win all 5 flavors of the new OK Snacks popcorn pictured above, so make sure to head on over and participate!

1-2 cloves of garlic, crushed
Sea salt + freshly ground pepper
1 deciliter (about 0.4 cup) ketchup
1 tablespoon oliveoil
1 tablespoon applecider vinegar
2 teaspoons sriracha
2 teaspoons coconut sugar
1 teaspoon onionpowder
1 teaspoons smoked paprika
1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon taco seasoning – optional
(you can also simply use a store-bought BBQ sauce)
Avocado garlic cream
1 large avocado
1 deciliter (about 0.4 cup) greek yoghurt
1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 small clove of garlic, crushed

Spicy baked cauliflower bites: Start by preheating your oven to 200 c / 400 f (hot air) and cutting the cauliflower into small bite sized pieces. Then add water, flour, garlic, salt and pepper to a bowl and whisk everything together. Dip the cauliflower bites into the flour mixture until they are completely coated and then place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake the cauliflower bites for 15 minutes at 200 c / 400 f (hot air).
While the cauliflower is in the oven, whisk together the ingredients for the BBQ sauce. After 15 minutes take out the cauliflower bites and brush them with the BBQ sauce. Put it back in the oven and bake it for another 20-25 minutes – they are done when the cauliflower edges start to darken.
Avocado garlic cream: Simply add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth. Make sure to taste it and adjust the seasoning to your liking.
Tacos: Warm the tacos according to the package instructions and serve them with the cauliflower bites, avocado cream, jalapeño popcorn, veggies and salsa, enjoy! ♥
