Vegan Sheet Pan Cauliflower Fajitas. Peppers, onions, cauliflower and taco seasoning come together to make a mouthwatering meal that is ready in just 30 minutes. Serve with a side of refried beans and spanish rice for a Mexican feast!
I’ve seen a lot of cauliflower “meat” recipes floating around the internet lately. So I guess it wasn’t a huge surprise when this recipe idea came to me. I wanted to add something to Fajitas that would “stand in” for the usual meat. Yeah, I could just use beans, but I didn’t want to do that. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE beans, but I just wanted something different for these.
Enter, the amazing Cauliflower.
If you’re hesitant about cauliflower, don’t be! Give it a try. Roasted cauliflower is AMAZING. It’s a completely different experience than raw or steamed cauliflower.
Chop up your cauliflower pretty small, along with red and green peppers, an onion and some homemade (or storebought) taco seasoning. Put everything in a large bowl along with a couple tablespoons of olive oil (or water if you want it to be oil-free) and mix until combined.
Dump the mixture onto a large sheet pan or two smaller sheet pans and roast for 20-25 minutes at 425 degrees. If you don’t use oil, it helps to use silicone mats or parchment paper to prevent sticking.
