30 minute Roasted Cauliflower Taco Bowls

One word for these bowls and that’s FIRE. Straight up fire, my friends, and an absolute must make.

One of my goals this year is to make and eat more plant based meals, starting with these 30 Minute Roasted Cauliflower Taco Bowls. These might be my new favorite weeknight meal because they truly couldn’t have been any easier and were SO delicious. The roasted cauliflower is most definitely the star of the show in this dish and all we did was toss it in some olive oil, salt, pepper, and store-bought taco seasoning! Easy Peasy.

The great thing about bowls like this is they are super easy to customize based on what you like and prefer. I love toppings, so I of course added anything I could find in my fridge, but feel free to customize however you’d like! I also wanted to keep them grain-free, but you could always add some white rice to make it more of a burrito bowl style if that’s your thing.

Would these 30 minute Roasted Cauliflower Taco Bowls be a good meal for entertaining friends?

One million percent!! The nice thing about bowls is everyone likes to assemble their own anyway, so it takes some pressure off of you to plate everything and get it on the table. Simply get a big Sheetpan of cauliflower roasting in the oven. While that’s cooking away, set up an assembly line with the bowls and all toppings. That way, as soon as the cauliflower is finished, you’ll be ready to boogie! I can assure you people will absolutely LOVE this one.
