Cauliflower Nachos

Cheesy Cauliflower Nachos 

Cauliflower takes the spotlight in this keto-friendly twist on classic nachos, offering a crunchy base for all your favorite toppings.


  • 1 large cauliflower head, cut into 1-inch thick slices
  • Avocado oil or olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup organic corn, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup chopped grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and sliced
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheddar cheese
  • Plain Greek yogurt for serving
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro for serving


  1. Arrange a rack in the middle of your oven and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  3. Remove the outermost leaves from the cauliflower and rinse off any dirt by running it under water. Pat the excess moisture with a towel or allow to air dry.
  4. Slice your cauliflower into 1-inch slices; it’s ok if the slices don’t hold together. Spread the sliced cauliflower onto the large baking sheet and lightly spray or brush with oil.
  5. Sprinkle evenly with sea salt and pepper to taste, then garlic and onion powder.
  6. Roast for 20 minutes, turning halfway through until golden brown and crispy on all sides.
  7. Once the florets are done, transfer half of them into an oven dish.
  8. Evenly add half of your beans on top of the florets.
  9. Next, add chopped tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, followed by the shredded cheese. Make sure you reserve half of each topping to add to the next layer of cauliflower.
  10. Add the second layer of cauliflower and repeat with the remaining toppings.
