From pizza to pasta to the completely unexpected, these 24 vegan cauliflower recipes are healthy, unique, and delicious.
I am not a vegan, but I am a cauliflower fan.
And I’m all for healthier alternatives to my favorite foods.
I’m completely onboard the cauliflower pizza crust bandwagon. And the cauliflower gnocchi, buffalo cauliflower wings, and cauliflower rice ones, too.
In fact, I’m going through a cauliflower phase, if you will, at the moment. I’m currently quite obsessed with the Trader Joe’s cauliflower pizza crust, and there’s two different breweries in my town where I pretty much only go to for the cauliflower dishes. One is spicy buffalo cauliflower and the other a crispy, crunchy popcorn cauliflower with lemon aioli. Both are so good.
That’s what inspired me to round up this list, actually. I was on the hunt for some unique cauliflower-based recipes to make at home. Turns out, so many amazing cauliflower recipes also happen to be vegan and healthy, while still remaining crazy delicious.
Here are my favorite vegan cauliflower recipes.
