This cauliflower version of the authentic Mexican ceviche is the best I've tried! It has great flavor and it's full of vegetables! I prefer to serve it over a tostada (baked or fried corn tortilla) with guacamole!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook cauliflower in the boiling water until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.

  • Mix cauliflower, cucumber, onion, tomato, cilantro, and serrano chile peppers together in a large bowl. Add vegetable juice, lime juice, chili powder, soy-based seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce, respectively, stirring after each addition. Season with salt.

Cook's Note:

You can change the firmness of the cauliflower by cooking more or less time. If you want the ceviche to be less spicy, you can use jalapeno peppers instead serranos, without the seeds, or if you want it more spicy you can keep some of the seeds. You can add or skip ingredients: add a cup of chopped cooked carrots, skip the tomato, etc.

As a vegan dish really tasty! We didn't even use the vegetable juice or soy-based liquid and it was a hit with our vegetarian-leaning brood. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Cheers! Read More

Surprisingly very good dish! As a substitute for real ceviche- no: the cauliflower does have a completely different taste/texture that stands out (in a good way!). As a different and unique dish that captures the "spirit" of what ceviche flavor is (spicy, citrusy, juicy)- absolutely! Definitely agree with other reviewers and reccommend that you let this sit and marinade for a bit before digging in- the flavors just intensify and really come together- sooo good! Thank you, Michelle, for sharing! (^v^) Read More

Soo good better the longer it sits if you can make it and refrigerate over night better! Read More

I added shredded carrots and sweet bell pepper. I also put a bit of garlic powder and half spoon of apple cider vinegar and I turned out great. Even my non-vegetarian friends liked it Read More

Amazing! I had to make a few changes- added corn and used spicy Rotel instead of fresh tomato & peppers bc I didn t have them... also didn t have any fresh cilantro but I didn t miss it. I can t wait to try tomorrow after the leftovers have marinated overnight! I will definitely make this again.?????? Read More

Excellent. A bit like a gazpacho. As noted you can add a variety of vegetables. I overdid the heat( picante) a bit but still very tasty. Read More
