5 Recipes that Highlight Cauliflower’s Flavor Power

Sept. 23, 2021

Cauliflower is an often-overlooked ingredient that has so much flavor potential! From vegetarian recipes to buffalo cauliflower favorites, these five meals will get you excited about pairing Mission tortillas with bold cauliflower flavors.

Cauliflower recipes often feature this vegetable as a side dish or accompaniment rather than the star of a dish; if you’re looking for delicious and nutritious recipes that let cauliflower shine, look no further! We here at Mission know that using healthy ingredients in bold new ways is key to cooking outside the box. Whether you’re looking for recipes with cauliflower that highlight its texture or vegetarian meals that use cauliflower to add flavor and bulk to the dish, these five options will leave you singing cauliflower’s praises to anyone who will listen!

Curried Chickpea and Cauliflower Wraps

One of the best things about cauliflower is its ability to soak up whatever flavor you layer on top; in this vegetarian  cauliflower recipe, the cauliflower lends its texture to curry alongside protein-rich chickpeas and delicious toppings. After you’ve roasted the cauliflower and chickpea curry in the oven, smash it up and add a homemade lime crema to the mixture. Fold in other toppings of your choice (including apples, celery, cashews, red onion, and spinach), then spoon onto a tortilla; our Gluten Free Spinach Herb Tortilla Wraps add an extra element of flavor to this already jam-packed meal.

Cauliflower Roll Ups

While cauliflower is delicious on its own, it also pairs well with rich ingredients like meats and cheeses. Take advantage of its versatility by making these delicious cauliflower roll ups with roast beef and a hearty romesco sauce. Roasting the cauliflower with salt and pepper will give it a nice, nutty flavor that enhances the romesco sauce’s almond base. Layer the cauliflower, sauce, and roast beef (or whatever meat/non-meat protein you choose) in a tortilla and serve with your dipping sauce of choice! Using our Garden Spinach Wraps and/or our Sun Dried Tomato Basil Wraps will give these roll ups an extra-special burst of color and flavor that’s perfect for gatherings this time of year.

Roasted Cauliflower Tacos

Have you been searching for the perfect vegetarian recipe to serve on Taco Tuesday? Look no further. This roasted cauliflower taco recipe combines classic flavors with nutrient-rich cauliflower for a meal that everyone will enjoy. Start by roasting all of the vegetables for both your homemade romesco sauce and the cauliflower itself; roasting on a high heat will help deepen the flavor and lock in all of the juices. When your peppers, tomatoes, and garlic are done roasting, blend them with almonds, spices, and oil to form a perfect romesco sauce; meanwhile, your cauliflower should be done roasting in its own spice rub and ready for plating. Nestle everything inside some warmed Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps for a cauliflower-inspired Mexican recipe that is sure to impress.

If you’re looking for a healthier spin on breakfast burritos for the family, try this hearty cauliflower rice recipe. By using the cauliflower rice alongside eggs and cheese, you’ll leave everyone feeling full longer! The key to preparing these breakfast burritos is to cook the cauliflower rice separately before assembling; you can add plenty of flavorful spices to the cauliflower rice this way and drain any excess liquid. Wrap up the warmed cauliflower rice with scrambled eggs and cheese inside a toasty Protein Tortilla Wrap; you can even add avocado and salsa for extra flavor!
