These Japanese-Mexican fusion tacos are packed with flavour - we've got an edamame and charred corn salsa, marinated and fried cauliflower bites, and a miso lemon crema.


Start by charring the corn, either under the grill or in a pan. Once it's cooled enough to handle, slice the corn off the cob.

Add to a bowl along with edamame, red onion, chilli, coriander, soy, vinegar, sesame oil, and sugar. Mix, taste, and adjust any seasonings as necessary.

Combine soy, ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, and sugar for your marinade, then add the cauliflower florets. Leave to sit for 15 minutes

While that sits, make the crema. Whisk together miso paste and lemon juice before adding vegan mayo and yoghurt. Season to taste.

In another bowl, combine equal parts plain flour with cornflour. Add your marinated florets, then carefully add to oil heated to 180 C. Fry until golden brown and crispy, drain on kitchen roll, then finish with flaky salt.

Build your tacos, and enjoy!
