I have to admit – I was never a fan of cauliflower. Not that it grossed me out (okay, maybe it did) but it wasn’t something that was on my go-to to eat as a kid or even when I entered adulthood. Even now, I’m still kinda iffy about cauliflower despite eating it more than I ever have been.
But you can always teach an old dog new tricks, right?
I have an IG friend, Jaime, who loves everything cauliflower. And she’s part of the reason why I decided to branch out and try something different. I love tacos (who doesn’t?) and I didn’t want to do the typical portobello mushroom fare that we’ve been doing for years.
Why not cauliflower?
I would love to take credit for this but really, it wasn’t me. The ingredients were hella simple and the recipe promised I’ll be eating this goodness within 30 minutes. I can’t lose.
Let’s talk about all of the wonderful benefits of cauliflower. Cauliflower has a grip of benefits. Yes, a grip. For those who don’t speak slang, a grip means a whole lot. Now go ahead and use it in a sentence – I just had a grip of cauliflower right now. Yes, yes, very good.
From aiding in weight loss to making sure your skin is glowing and dewy to helping detox the body, you really can’t go wrong with cauliflower. A key part of cauliflower that really caught my attention is how it might help fight Alzheimer’s, a disease that runs in my family.
I didn’t make the recipe as is – I’ll admit my version wasn’t vegan because I couldn’t find vegan ranch at the grocery store and I didn’t have the energy to make a special stop to get it. Still, the recipe came out amazeballs! It’s really hella good!
I didn’t use as much buffalo sauce the recipe called for, and really, I should’ve. The buffalo sauce really makes a difference. Some other people used hot sauce or Sriracha sauce and they said it came out great, so those are options for you to try.
I have to give a great shout-out to the great folks over at This Savory Vegan for posting such an amazing recipe. Go check out the website! It’s hella dope.
