Easy Vegan Cauliflower Ceviche

by - August 22, 2019

Every year for summer, my parents love to make ceviche for family gatherings. Ceviche is one of my favorite dishes I couldn't wait to eat every year, but after becoming vegetarian 3 years ago, I never got the opportunity to eat it again. Until I went to a vegan restaurant in Mexico last year, and order it. I loved it so much, I couldn't wait to recreate it back home. When I shared this delicious dish with my family, I never actually told them it was vegan ceviche, and to my surprise, no one noticed the difference. In fact, they were all shocked to know that I used cauliflower instead of fish. If you want that "fishy" taste, adding seaweed to this recipe will do the trick. Just like that, ceviche became my staple dish for summer again. I love this version of ceviche way more than the original one. I hope you decide to give this recipe a try and love it as much as I do!
