Ceviche de Coliflor (Cauliflower Ceviche)

La Semilla

This recipe is a hit with all our youth programming participants, including our You Grow Chica! farm summer camp. 

Servings: 12


  • 1 large head cauliflower
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 small white onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1-3 fresh jalapenos
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper
  • 12-14 tostada shells, tortilla chips, or lettuce leaves
  1. Use a sharp knife to mince cauliflower, cilantro, onion, chiles, and garlic into pea-sized pieces.
  2. Transfer to a salad bowl and toss with tomatoes, lime juice, salt, and pepper.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving for best taste.

La Semilla adaptation: Top with black beans and avocado

One of the favorites, hands down. It's not included in the recipe but we always adapt and add/top with black beans and avocado.
