Cauliflower Ceviche

  • 1 head of cauliflower rinsed and cut into florets
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 5 oz white mushrooms cleaned and chopped
  • 3 tomatoes seeds removed and chopped
  • 1 jalapeño finely chopped
  • 2 scallions chopped

Cauliflower Ceviche

  • In a pot over high heat, boil water. Add cauliflower florets and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Drain florets in a colander. Add florets to a bowl of iced water to stop the cooking process. Drain again.  
  • Chop florets into smaller pieces and chop the other vegetables.
  • Add all to a bowl and mix well. Add lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Mix all together well. 
  • Let the ceviche marinate for 25 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.

Simple Guacamole Spread

  • Cut avocados in half and remove pits.
    In a small to medium bowl, mash the avocados with a fork.
    Add fresh lime juice and salt to taste.

Assemble Tostadas

  • Spread 2-3 tablespoons of the guacamole on tostadas, ceviche, red cabbage and spoon salsa verde on top.
  • Finally if you like, for an even more refreshing taste, sprinkle a little more lime over tostadas.  Enjoy!


If you cannot find tostadas in your local supermarket, you can also make homemade.  Simply add a tablespoon of oil to a skillet over medium heat and fry corn tortillas on both sides until golden brown.  Drain on paper towels and corn tortilla will harden.
