How to make Cauliflower Taco Bowls with Vegan Cilantro Ranch

These Cauliflower Taco Bowls are LOADED with all kinds of good stuff. Cauliflower, bell peppers, onions, jalapenos, brown rice, black beans…the list goes on and on. Well, not really, that’s pretty much it.

BUT, even though the ingredient list is slightly long, don’t worry. This recipe is still super simple. We’re chopping, we’re seasoning and we’re roasting.

First thing to do is roast the veggies. Get it all on a baking sheet and toss with some olive oil and taco seasoning.

Next, make the sauce and prep the brown rice and beans.

How to serve Cauliflower Taco Bowls with Vegan Cilantro Ranch

Throw it all in a bowl with your favorite leafy greens and top it off with the vegan cilantro ranch. I like to add lots of cilantro to top it off!

You can easily make these ahead of time for lunch on the go. Just keep the warm and cold ingredients separate, then assemble right before eating.
