Here at the 131 Method, we bring you all kinds of creative recipes, satisfying a variety of needs. That’s because we believe you should be changing the way you eat (AKA, diet phasing) every month or so. For us, that means a phase of a keto-ish eating. Then, a phase of a micronutrient dense eating where the focus is more plants, less meat. Lastly, we teach the concept of carb cycling, where your body learns to burn carbs rather than store them. Our Cauliflower Ceviche recipe fits into any phase of the 131 Method. It was created to fit perfectly into the Nourish phase (phase 2), where the focus is more plants, less animal. However, it works beautifully anywhere thanks to its low carb, high-nutrient nature.
How to Serve your Cauliflower Ceviche
Obviously, this dish looks stunning for a party appetizer. The seasonal nature of tomatoes, and fresh and citrus-based flavors scream summer. Make it for a party, or even just for your family on an alfresco evening. We love Siete chips at 131 HQ. They’re grain-free chips made with top-quality ingredients. No inflammatory oils or GMO corn in these babies. But if chips don’t work for you, opt for celery sticks, bell pepper or cucumber “chips,” grain-free tortillas, lettuce cups, or topped over a salad.
We. Love. Cauliflower. Cruciferous vegetables are cancer-fighting powerhouses that fill you up, for very few calories. Our cauliflower ceviche is full of antioxidants from the tomatoes, cilantro, onions and avocado.
- We tested this recipe out on several people who claim they “hate cauliflower.” Guess what?! Every taste-tester came back for more. And more! The cauliflower absorbs the spicy-citrus flavors so any original flavor becomes masked. The texture transforms into that of a hard, white fish, similar to traditional ceviche.
- Customize your cauliflower ceviche by adding more or less spice, or changing the citrus to fresh lemon, or orange.
- A perfect recipe for summer, keeping things seasonal with the bounty of tomatoes that grow.
- Low calorie, low carb, high fiber.
