A vegan avocado cauliflower ceviche is what it is on the menu today!

I have been a caregiver for a few years now, and I use resources like SaboreaUnoHoy.com to search for heart-healthy recipes such as this vegan avocado cauliflower ceviche. On this site, I have found articles and helpful how-to videos in Spanish and in English to create many yummy recipes with avocados.

My husband has a heart condition, and I always look for balanced menus and options to support a healthy lifestyle. And I have found that adding avocados to the weekly menu is not only delicious but a good thing to do.

Avocados are a heart-healthy option. We slice first and then cut cubes.

Avocados are a heart-healthy option.

Each avocado bite you enjoy provides naturally good fats. Besides avocados are sodium and cholesterol-free, plus are a good source of fiber too.

And a fantastic way to enjoy avocados is by making this recipe inspired on a dish I found the “Saborea Uno Hoy” site: The Vegan Avocado Cauliflower Ceviche.

Choose the freshest produce for vegetarian ceviche

This recipe is easy to make and uses fresh produce such as raw cauliflower, tomato, garlic, purple onion, cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, salt to taste, and the star of the dish: avocado!

Avocados are a fruit, who knew?

Avocados are a delicious and creamy fruit that has so many benefits when adding them to our menu planning. However, why should you include them in your diet?

The ingredients for the cauliflower ceviche include fresh produce

We have learned that avocados are low in saturated fat and are cholesterol- and sodium-free. Plus, provide naturally good fats as 75% of the fat found in fresh avocados is unsaturated.

When we include them in our menu, we can use them as a replacement for saturated fats — helping to reduce bad cholesterol and supporting cardiovascular health.

Use a big bowl for mixing the ingredients and add the avocado until ready to serve to avoid browning.

These avocado facts are essential to know as to when we are taking care of the elderly in our household or family members that need a better healthy lifestyle using avocados is a good idea.

Avocados are delicious and part of my Mexican culture.

I use avocados in so many dishes, and this vegan cauliflower ceviche is a perfect example of how avocados can add creaminess and that yummy flavor that is so characteristic in Mexican cuisine.

When choosing avocados, please consider Avocado Hass from Mexico. These fruits are cultivated in the perfect environment and have the ideal flavor to make the best guacamole and other heart-healthy recipes such as this vegan ceviche.

Besides this ceviche, is perfect for entertaining too. If you are looking for alternative vegetarian recipes to include in the BIG game menu, try this vegetarian ceviche.

Serve it in single small shots or cups for a fun presentation. Or use the actual avocado and use it as a serving bowl. Include corn chips as those pair well with the fresh ingredients and the creaminess of the avocado too.

The ceviche has the perfect crunchy texture and a citrusy flavor with a mild spiciness. Use it as a topper for salads too. Goes fantastic with a bed of field greens and spinach.

Tips for making the best cauliflower ceviche at home!

  • Choose a small cauliflower head. Find one that is fresh and with no black markings.
  • Remove the green leaves and the core. Cut the cauliflower in small pieces.
  • If you prefer the cauliflower with a softer texture, blanch it before using it.
  • For blanching the cauliflower add enough water to a pasta pot with a strainer and let it boil.
  • Add the cauliflower florets and blanch for 5-7 minutes. Take it out and place it in a bowl with ice to stop the cooking process.
  • Choose a firm avocado and do not slice or dice until ready to serve the ceviche.
  • A firm avocado is the one that has a deep green color, and it is firm to the touch.
  • Remove the little stem, and if the avocado has a bright green color is good to eat. If otherwise, the avocado looks brown, it is not good to use.
  • If you prefer a less spicy ceviche, remove the vein and the seeds of the jalapeno before chopping.
  • Olive oil is a heart-healthy option. When shopping for it, choose one with good quality, and that comes in a deep green, dark container.
