Vegan & gluten-free 🌿

We can’t believe how quickly they come together for dinner, especially if you get the already riced cauliflower at the grocery store. So. Easy!


  • 3 cups riced cauliflower, or whole (see instructions)
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 4-5 medium mushrooms (white or cremini)
  • 2 tablespoons water or vegetable broth
  • 1/2 large red onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced chipotle peppers in adobo (about 3 peppers)
  • 3 tablespoons adobo sauce from the can or jar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • crunchy corn, soft corn or flour tortillas
  • shredded lettuce
  • chopped tomatoes
  • Nafsika’s Garden vegan cheese shreds
  • salsa
  • avocado slices
  • *Optional: non-dairy sour cream


  • If you are using whole cauliflower, wash, chop off the florets and place in food processor. Pulse, creating cauliflower “rice”. Set aside 3 cups of cauliflower rice. (If you can, get the already riced cauliflower in the produce section, most grocery stores carry it now)
  • Now add the walnuts and mushrooms to the food processor. (Alternately, you can chop these until they are in small pieces.) Pulse a few times until they are a similar consistency as the cauliflower. Don’t over process or you will have a paste.
  • Heat a large pan (cast iron preferred) over medium heat. Add the water/vegetable broth, and saute the onion and garlic for 2-3 minutes, until translucent.
  • Now add the cauliflower, walnuts, mushrooms, chipotles and adobo sauce, cumin, smoked paprika and salt. Stir until well combined. Continue to cook over medium heat, stirring frequently for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve in tortillas of your choice (or use in a burrito bowl) and choose your toppings: lettuce, tomatoes, Nafsika’s Garden vegan cheese shreds, non-dairy sour cream, avocado slices and/or salsa.
  • Enjoy!
