Hey Sassy Fam! You're going to fall in love with my vegan cauliflower taco bowls! And you don't even have to be vegan to love them!
It's weird, as of late I have been on a plant-based diet kick so don't be surprised if I end up flooding your inbox with meatless recipes. But don't be alarmed, I will continue to share my clean-eating meat dishes as well!
There's a lot of components in this recipe so I broke it down into parts for you! Pay attention to the multi-tasking tidbits because there are a few of them!
