  • 1 head Cauliflower (about 6 cups - sliced into "chips)
  • 1 TBSP Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin 
  • 1 tsp paprika 
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican Cheese Blend 
  • 1 cup black beans rinsed
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives 
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes 
  • 1/4 cup diced onions 
  • 1 avocado diced
  • Any other toppings you might enjoy


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Prepare a large baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside. 

  2. Prepare the cauliflower chips by slicing into 1/2 inch pieces making sure to create a chip like shape so the toppings can cover the cauliflower slices properly.  Place sliced cauliflower in a large mixing bowl. 

  3. In a small bowl, combine garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, paprika, chili powder and salt into a nice seasoning.  

  4. Drizzle sliced cauliflower with olive oil, using hands make sure each piece is covered in oil. 

  5. Sprinkle prepared seasoning over the oiled cauliflower and mix well to make sure all pieces have an equal amount of seasoning. 

  6. Arrange cauliflower pieces on prepared baking sheet, making sure to space out the pieces so that they roast instead of steam. 

  7. Bake seasoned cauliflower for about 20 minutes - the cauliflower will brown and get tender.  

  8. Remove from oven and push the cauliflower together to create a "nacho pile".

  9. Sprinkle cheese and black beans over cauliflower.  Return nachos to oven for about 8 minutes. 

  10. Once the cheese is melted, remove pan from oven and begin topping nachos with the rest of the toppings you prepared. 

  11. Serve while hot and out of the oven by using a spatula to move nachos to serving plates.  ENJOY!!!
