Let’s taco bout my obsession with cauliflower and how fun it is to make delicious and unique meals out of it. This buffalo vegan taco bowl is inspired by my cauliflower tacos (which I eat on the regular). But this bowl is deconstructed with a new twist on the creamy cashew sauce and loaded with extra veg to shove into your mouth.
Now The Picky Husband really isn’t a huge fan of cauliflower and it greatly upsets me. He’s actually a good sport but one week recently we literally had cauliflower for dinner 4 nights in a row. I was more than thrilled about it but Adam had reached his limit (fair enough). He loves most cauliflower dinners but just needs them spaced out. He did enjoy this vegan taco bowl and he isn’t usually a big fan of a bunch of ingredients all tossed together in one bowl. His first bite he got a piece of avocado and cauliflower together, he saw the orange colour and felt the texture of the avocado and stared at me and asked with a mouthful, “are there yams in this?!” (he hates yams). But as soon as I could reassure him he was eating cauliflower and avocado he relaxed and began to enjoy his bite. He loved the flavours and suggested the addition of tortilla chips. With or without the tortilla chips, this is a bowl full of flavour and loaded with such good nutrients.
Here are a few reasons why I love this taco bowl, so listen up!
- It takes less than an hour to throw this all together, which is a bonus for those weeknight dinners.
- You can easily adjust this meal to feed 2, 4, 6 or even a bigger group! Just chop extra veg and double or quadruple the cauliflower and sauce!
- It’s spicy but not fire breathing spicy. If you like a little kick to your meals than this is perfect for you. The cauliflower adds some smokey flavour and heat without going overboard.
- I love a big bowl full of tasty ingredients because each bite tastes a little different, and a little better than the last. Feel free to add some guacamole or salsa to jazz this baby up even more!
You might have to use a fork for this kind of Taco Tuesday but I promise it will be just as delicious. Add some zest and spice to your weeknight dinners as you dig into this big bowl of goodness!
