10 Vegan Cauliflower Dishes to Try in Los Angeles

Remember the days when your parents would force you to eat your vegetables? When you would sit at the dinner table for hours picking at your seemingly bottomless serving of fibrous foods? Thanks to the uproar in the health food community, those days are long gone! Creative ways to get your veggies in now actually taste great! You should already know about the art of Buffalo cauliflower, but as the needy vegans we are, we want more! Here are 10 different captivating cauliflower-centered dishes from LA restaurants to spice up your food pyramid (or whatever the diet is that you follow––you do you, boo!)

All Vegan Organic

Santa Monica

Whether you eat gluten-free, keto, or just want to cut back on carbs, check out the buns at this cafe! You can order their Elive cauliflower crusts as buns in place of bread on any burger, panini, or as a mini pizza! For happy hour on Thursdays, try their air-fried cauliflower tots! Who said binging burgers and tots wasn’t healthy?

Gracias Madre

West Hollywood

Take a break from Buffalo cauliflower and try out the Coliflór Frito at Gracias Madre! Served with cashew nacho cheese and lemon, these beauties make for a great precursor to any of their well-crafted entrees! Did we mention the vibes of this restaurant are aesthetic AF? See for yourself!

Vegetable

Studio City

If you can’t already tell by the name, this spot has plenty of vegan options like their Bulleit Bourbon BBQ Roasted Cauliflower. With crispy baked kale, potato and roasted garlic mash, house-pickled cucumber, house-made Bulleit bourbon, roasted serrano pepper BBQ sauce, smoked sriracha aïoli, and chives, this makes steamed cauliflower look weak!

Califlower Pizza

Hollywood and DTLA

This vegan-friendly pizza delivery company sneaks vitamin-rich veggies into their ‘za with their new and improved vegan, gluten-free, and keto cauliflower crust! Any pizza can be made vegan when you order it with their vegan mozzarella cheese! The Farmers Market Bounty pizza has house-made tomato sauce, vegan mozzarella, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, olives, fresh tomatoes, and arugula! If you need a lil’ extra on the side, get their Buffalo Cauliflower Wings with house-made vegan ranch dressing!

Tocaya Organica

Multiple Locations

Tocaya’s menu includes cauliflower in rice form! Their Spanish-style cauliflower rice can be ordered as a side, in a burrito, or mixed in a bowl. The Keto Bowl features their cauliflower rice surrounded by sautéed tri-color peppers, oven-roasted brussels sprouts, avocado, black olives, and arbol salsa. You get to choose your own protein and queso for their entrees with vegan options that include Cilantro Lime Vegan Chicken, Adobo Tofu, Vegan Picadillo, Vegan Mozzarella, and Vegan Chipotle Jack. Test out the combinations and report back on your favorite––consider it homework!

Real Food Daily

West Hollywood and Pasadena

Real Food Daily has a few creative cauliflower options like their Curry Cakes featuring cauliflower chickpea fritters, jalapeño coconut cashew cream, cilantro, and tamarind sauce. Or you can ask for a menu hack of their Buffalo Tater Tots with cauliflower instead of tots!

Counterpart Deli

Echo Park

Pasta lovers, where you at? Hopefully you’re on your way to Counterpart Deli for their Cauliflower Mac ‘n’ Cheese! This dish contains gluten-free elbow noodles, cashew cheese, and roasted cauliflower with the option to order it for one or ten people. If you’re anything like us, ten means one hungry person … Mac ‘n’ YES PLEASE!

Jesse Boy

Hollywood

Buffalo cauliflower’s Korean cousin can be found at Jesse Boy on a salad, with your favorite side, or as a sandwich! You get to choose your own adventure by deciding between their regular or spicy flavor of Korean Fried Cauliflower, topped with radishes and a squeeze of lemon. The flavors are on point!

Raw Junkies

Studio City

Taste the rainbow at Raw Junkies with their Turmeric Roasted Cauliflower Curry with Antioxidant Riceberry Rice! The dish is made up of roasted cauliflower, Japanese sweet potato, carrots, red bell peppers, onion, coconut milk, and various spices. We feel healthier just describing it!

Trejos Tacos

Multiple Locations

Celebrate Taco Tuesday (or Wednesday, or Thursday, or any day of the week) at this vegan-friendly joint! Their cauliflower taco with grilled corn, cashew cream, pickled onions, cilantro, radishes, and lime wedges is something to taco bout!
