  • Brown the ground beef, add the onion and garlic 3 minutes into the cooking time
  • Add spices to the ground beef and tomato sauce to the ground beef
  • Let simmer for 5-10 minutes, add a couple of tablespoons of water if it dries out
  • Top the pre-cooked cauliflower with the ground beef mixture and cheese.
  • Cook in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

Feel free to substitute the spice mix with a taco-spice mix for a quicker dinner.
You can also make this meat-free by using the seasoning on beans or on the cauliflower itself instead of the ground beef.
