Cauliflower Crumbles

Hell to the yes! This is one of my FAVORITE taco toppings! Here’s a recipe so you can try it out on your next Taco Tuesday or Burrito Thursday. I use the air fryer so there’s tons of crispy bits and it’s done in 20 minutes. I’ve als made them in the oven. You simpley spread the mixture on a sheet pan and cook at 450 degrees for about 30-40 minutes. Either way, the end result is delicious.


  • 1 head cauliflower broken into florets
  • 1 T each: chili powder (or taco seasoning mix), garlic powder, coconut aminos or Bragg’s, avocado oil
  • 1/2 C nutritional yeast


  1. Place florets into food processor and pulse a few times or roughly chop with a knife.
  2. Add cauliflower and all other ingredients into a bowl, mix well.
  3. Remove the grill or grate from the air fryer so you’re only using the pan (if you can’t remove the grate or grill, use the oven instead).
  4. Preheat the air fryer for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add mixture to the pan, set air fryer at 390 degrees for 20 minutes.
  6. Stir every 3-5 minutes so they brown and crisp evenly.
  7. Use on tacos, in burritos, bowls, or even topping your nachos.


Now go run!
