Cauliflower Nachos

Cauliflower never disappoints me! I saw this recipe here. It is very easy to make and very tasty. I added some protein powder to make it a full meal, but you can skip it and serve it as a side dish if you prefer.

  • 1/2 big cauliflower (600g)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt, pepper
  • Optional: garlic powder, chili, paprika
  • 1 cup (110g) shredded cheddar or edam
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder, flavorless, such as whey or pea protein powder
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Jalapenos in vinegar (about 20 g)
  • 35 g onion
  • 100 g fresh tomato
  • Fresh coriander
  • Process
    1. Heat up the oven to 220C.
    2. Chop the cauliflower into “steaks” about 1.5 cm thick each. I prefer to discard the edges as they break apart easily, so I keep them for cauli-rice.
    3. Put the cauliflower in a baking tray with salt, oil, pepper and spices to taste. Mix well, arrange in a single layer.
    4. Bake the cauliflower for 30-40 minutes until it is golden.
    5. Meanwhile, prepare the guacamole (mix the avocado, protein, lemon, 15 g onion, cilantro, salt and pepper) and the salsa (chop and mix the tomato, the rest of the onion, salt, pepper and some coriander).
    6. Once the cauliflower is golden, take out of the oven, cover with cheese and bake further 2 minutes so it melts.
    7. Take out of the oven, pour the salsa, guacamole and some jalapenos on top, and eat while it is still hot.
