Happy New Year friends! I’m not sure about you but boy am I ready to eat some vegan plant-based meals this month! To kick off our annual “Vegan January” here is one of our favorite meals as of late – Smoky Cauliflower Chimichurri Bowls!
On Sundays, I like to make a batch of Cilantro Lime Rice and Mexican pinto beans, make some flavorful chimichurri sauce and this Mexican Slaw, and roast off this super flavorful smoky cauliflower – so that it is all on hand for the coming week. The pickled onions are always a nice touch too! If short on time, pick up a can of black beans- totally fine!
Then the vegan cauliflower bowls are very easy to put together and there is comfort in knowing that something healthy awaits in the fridge. All these ingredients can be repurposed during the week to make tacos as well!

To make the Smoky Roasted cauliflower – toss with olive oil, salt and spices.
Smoked paprika gives the cauliflower its smokiness.
Add some bell pepper or other veggies to the mix and spread out in a single layer on parchment-lined sheet pans.
Roast the cauliflower in a hot 425F oven until crispy and golden. You’ll need to stir these halfway through!
While the cauliflower is roasting, make or prep any sides you’d like for the bowls.
Chimichurri Cauliflower Bowl Components:
- Chimichurri Sauce
- Mexican slaw (or sub grated cabbage or radishes)
- Pickled red onions (or sub scallions)
- Seasoned Black Beans (heat up canned black beans, or make Mexican Pinto Beans)
- Cilantro Rice,or other whole grain (optional) or Tortillas
Then it’s just a matter of assembling. Which is why I love love love bowls!
Have fun and make them pretty friends! Watermelon radishes are sooooo beautiful here!
And remember, you can take the leftovers and repurpose them into tacos the next day! So tasty!
So meal prep these babies for the coming week. Make the Mexican Slaw, make the chimichurri sauce, make the seasoned black beans and feel good about having some healthy things in your fridge to have on hand.
