Jump to Recipe
Anyone else out there love the combo of spicy and sweet? Then this bowl with Grilled Chipotle Cauliflower topped with Mango Salsa is for you!

Back to … Anyone? … Anyone? Bueller? (channeling that teacher on Ferris Bueller….ha ha ha!!!) Oops, just hit a major bunny trail and had to go watch that movie clip on YouTube. CLASSIC.
Spicy cauliflower and sweet mango. SO good, right?!

And this vegan bowl recipe definitely satisfies those who love that spicy and sweet combo.
At first I was a little worried that I charred the be-geezers out of these veggies. This seems to be happening all the time with our new grill. I check the veggies. They look great! I get distracted for a few minutes. I re-check them and they are almost burned to crispy.
Now I do love crisp veggies and grilled veggies our my fav...but the charred taste well not so much!
But the powers that be were granting me a grilled veggie miracle and this turned out delicious!
The chipotle chili powder coating the veggies gives them a nice smokey taste (not charred, ha!) and it pairs so nicely with sweet mango.
And it just tastes so fresh!

Grilled Chipotle Cauli Taco Bowl with Mango Salsa

Recipe by SarahCourse: Main

Grilled chipotle spiced vegetables with a sweet and spicy mango salsa.


  • Grilled Chipotle Veggies
    4 Cups fresh Cauliflower Florets

  • 1 Ear of Corn, shucked and broke into 2 – 3 pieces

  • 1 Red Onion, cut into Slices

  • 1 Red Pepper in Slices

  • 10 Radishes Halved

  • 1/2 Jalapeño Sliced (or a whole one if you want spicier!)

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 tblsp lime juice

  • 1 t garlic minced

  • 1 t. salt

  • 1 t. chipotle chili powder

  • 1 t. cumin

  • 1/4 t. garlic pepper

  • 1/4 t. oregano

  • 1/4 t. smoked paprika

  • small amount of olive oil (1 – 2 teaspoons)

  • Mango Salsa
    1/2 a mango cut in small cubes

  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion

  • 1/4 cup chopped red pepper

  • 1/2 of a jalapeño minced

  • 2 Tblsp chopped cilantro

  • 1 Tblsp lime juice

  • 1/4 t cumin

  • 1/8 t salt

  • pinch of pepper


  • For Veggies: Combine all veggies, cilantro, lime juice and garlic with spices in a large bowl or reusable bag (my favorite option as you can shake them around to distribute evenly) and mix well. Marinate for 30 minutes to a few hours.
  • Pre-heat grill to medium heat. Spray grill pan with cooking spray. Put veggies on grill pan and grill until desired amount of tenderness (be sure to stir often so veggies on the bottom don’t burn). I find it takes 30 – 40 minutes.

  • For Mango Salsa: Combine all remaining ingredients in small dish and mix well. I love to let this sit in the fridge for a few hours so all the flavors really combine!

  • Enjoy over a bowl of fresh salad greens or spinach!


  • Since you only need a small amount of onion and red pepper for the salsa, use the rest for grilling.
  • I love this combination of veggies, but you might just want to use different ones! I think summer squashes and broccoli would also be nice.
