I’ve found a new love: cauliflower meat.
It sounds funky, but it works. Cauliflower meat is basically pulsed cauliflower, mushrooms, and walnuts along with some meat-like seasonings.
You won’t believe it! Now let me tell you how to make it.
Sometimes I’m really in the mood for a burger, but the thought of eating one doesn’t appeal to me – it can be messy and hard to eat. Plus, I’m a veggie girl, so I’m usually opting for a veggie burger- and then, I just wish it came with more toppings.
In fact, I’m usually more excited about the toppings than I am the patty itself. I like mine fully loaded- caramelized onions, tomatoes, lettuce, ketchup, avocado, even a fried egg.
I love the complete bite (my husband calls it the “perfect bite”) – where all the flavors come together in your mouth – the bun, the patty, the toppings, the condiments.
SO, I had this idea to just throw it all in a salad-like bowl with spiralized potatoes in place of the fries/bun.
AND IT WORKED.
This bowl has it all – crispy potatoes, hamburger “meat,” lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, and a creamy sauce that coats every bite. This faux meat has a soft crunch thanks to the walnuts which lightly soften in the veggie mixture.
I made these bowls two ways – one with cheese and one without, with the dressing. To be honest, it’s a toss up. Whatever your preference is, go with that one – or make them both!
Don’t be intimidated by the prep, this dish comes together well – and saves even better! I had leftovers for lunch the next day. Bonus points if you top this with a fried egg.
