Vegan Cauliflower Taco Meat

Cauliflower and mushrooms are minced and cooked with a load of spices to create a plant-based food product that looks like, smells like and tastes just like ground meat.

Cauliflower and mushroom taco meat.

I’m not a big fan of faux meat because it’s often very processed and full of sodium. There’s tofu, but I try to limit my soy consumption. Lots of vegans make ground meat made with walnuts, but I’m HIGHLY allergic to walnuts. So I often don’t get the opportunity to eat dishes that require ground “meat”.

Until now!

The combination of cauliflower and mushrooms creates a ground meat texture that is extremely close to real meat. And with the load of spices you can’t even detect the cauliflower. This “meat” can be used in a number of recipes including tacos, chili, nachos and so much more.


1 small head cauliflower (2 cups)

4 oz fresh mushrooms

2 Tbsp soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
