These Crispy Cauliflower Tzatziki Bowls with Sweet Potato Fries are a fun vegetarian “street food” inspired dinner. Oven-roasted cauliflower served bowl style with all the extras. Homemade sweet potato fries, lettuce, lots of peperoncini, a simple avocado cucumber slaw, and plenty of feta. Add lots of creamy tzatziki sauce, honey ginger tahini, and warm pitas. It’s a vegetarian bowl that’s SO GOOD.

If there’s one recipe style that I’m really into right now, it’s everything thrown together bowl style. I’m not sure what’s going on, but the amount of “bowl” recipes I have lined up is probably overdone. Instead of overthinking this too much, I’ve decided to just make the recipes that sound most delicious!

This has been a favorite that’s been on repeat for a few weeks now. If you’re familiar with my Chicken Tzatziki Bowls, I took that recipe and replaced the chicken with cauliflower.

A pretty simple swap that totally changes the entire bowl. I added a few spices, plus sweet potato fries. This is one of my favorite recipes. I love every single flavor and I really love the addition of the sweet potato fries.

Totally delicious!

Here are the details

I always start off by roasting both the cauliflower and the sweet potatoes. For the cauliflower, this spice mix is one of my favorites to date. I did garlic and shallots mixed with smoked paprika, chili powder (I like to use a mix of regular chili powder and chipotle chili powder), dried oregano, and turmeric. It’s pretty simple.

I toss the florets with olive oil, garlic, shallots, and the spices, and then roast.

At the same time, I throw the sweet potatoes on another baking sheet and toss them with olive and seasoned salt. They cook up at just about the same time, so it’s very convenient.

I like to use two sheet pans instead of just one for both the cauliflower and potatoes. If you overcrowd the baking sheets with too much food, the vegetables end up steaming and never getting crispy.

And we want them crispy! So I find that two sheets are best.

While the vegetables roast, I get everything together to assemble the bowls.

Mix fresh dill with lemon, avocado, and if you’d like, some cucumbers too. I don’t always add the cucumber. If I don’t, I then double up on the avocado.

If you love sauce as we do over here, you can make a quick gingery tahini garlic sauce. Mix tahini with lemon juice, honey, ginger, and garlic. Add water to thin out the sauce and season generously with salt.

This is totally optional, however, and not necessarily needed with all the Tzatziki sauce. But it is delicious. I provided the recipe in the notes for anyone wanting extra sauce.

My family really enjoyed these cauliflower bowls. My mom, dad, brothers, and cousins (yes we still have some here) all approved. It’s not always easy to please them all, so that should say something about the deliciousness of this recipe!

These bowls are great for meal prepping too!

  1. Made this tonight and everyone enjoyed it. We have severe food allergies so I skipped the feta and made the tzatziki with coconut yogurt. I also roasted a cauliflower / sweet potato sheet pan without the spices for the kids. But everything cooked at the same time so it wasn’t like I was making two separate dinners. The only thing that didn’t work for us was the oven temp! 425 burned the sweet potatoes but they weren’t cooked through. Just need to lower it for next time. Thanks for this veggie – forward, food allergy friendly family meal!!

    1. Hey Candice,
      Happy Tuesday! Thanks for giving this dish a try and sharing what worked well for you! So glad to hear it was enjoyed! Sorry about the sweet potatoes! xx

    Nothing crazy or fancy but make it once and I see it easily becoming a weekly staples especially since the cauliflower and fries can go in together. I did make the mistake of having too much cauliflower on my pan and it steamed but just need to make it again now I know! Also home made tziaki always tastes better than store bought makes a big different IMO

    I absolutely LOVED this recipe! Super fast to make and so so delicious! I didn’t have enough cauliflower on hand so I used a can of chickpeas with whatever cauliflower I had and it was SO good this way! I had some tahini ranch left over from your Buffalo cauliflower recipe so I used that up as a topping and instead of serving it over salad, we made wraps with the Naan bread. I can’t wait to make this again!

    Tieghan, just finished dinner. This was unbelievably good. From the cauliflower and sweet potatoes, the tzatziki and salad and tahini dressing… we could not stop talking about how good it was. Winner! Thank you so much for your great recipes. Your inspiration is our gift from you 👏😘

    Delicious! The spices on the crispy cauliflower tasted great with the sweeter tahini sauce and the homemade tzatziki sauce (from this website). All of the salad and ingredients folded together in a naan was wonderful. And so healthy!

    Made this last night,left my cauli marinating all day in the oil and spices just to get ahead. Made fluffy pitas to have with it and made my tzatziki. My family love meat on a weekend but were not disappointed. Love the fact it can all be prepared in advance. Love this Tieghan.X

    This bowl was delicious! I’m definitely adding it to my vegetarian meal rotation. The combo of cauliflower + sweet potato + tzatziki was so satisfying. None of that feeling that something’s missing that sometimes happens with vegetarian dishes. I spaced and completely forgot the tahini sauce, and this was still great!

      We combined this recipe with your chicken tzatziki bowl and it was delicious! The honey ginger tahini really was the showstopper. Thanks for another great recipe!

          I really wasn’t sure what to expect, but was really happy with the results! So delish. And that’s without the slaw or tahini sauce (avocados weren’t ripe and low on tahini)! I will definitely make this again as written. Thanks for helping me change up the routine!
