Crispy, spicy cauliflower nachos! A delicious low carb alternative, packed with flavour! Spicy,creamy, crispy and quick to make- this is the perfect week night dinner or lunch option!
Did you know I tried nachos for the first time ever 5 years ago? Yeah, you heard me correctly! And maaaan, was I in love with them!
They were so perfectly crispy, cheesy, and I just loved all the salsa. My only issue was, I could easily wolf down an entire plate but then after would feel extremely bloated and sluggish! Since my cauliflower mini pizzas were such a hit last time, I decided to use cauliflower yet again but this time in nacho form! Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE nachos made with corn chips, something that is delicious is adding some actual corn chips to the cauliflower nachos. This way you get the best of both & extra veggies and less bloating!
Either way, With or without the extra corn chips this recipe is SO delicious and so quick and easy!

Like I always say, If you find tortilla chip nachos MORE SATISFYING- then go for it ! Like I said, I LOVE BOTH, but these cauliflower nachos honest hit the spot and add extra volume. I often feel like a bit of both and will have some cauliflower nachos with some tortilla chips! Either way, it is the best way to add volume, and is SO DELICIOUS.

How to make the Cauliflower Nachos:
Step 1: Prepare your cauliflower
Slice your caulfilower into florets. Spray some oil spray, add your spices and sea salt. Bake at 180 degrees celisus until cooked through and cripsy (around 30-40 minutes)
Step 2: Add your toppings
Once your cauliflower is cooked, add your cheese, salsa, jalapenos & any extras! Bake again for an additional 5-10 minutes until cheese has melted.
Step 3: Top with some garnish
Top with some finely diced red onion, smooth low fat cottage cheese & some chopped herbs and spices (I like coriander!)
Eat immediately! Best served when hot and cheese is all melty, but if you don’t mind the cheese hardening you can enjoy it in your lunchbox!
