Cauliflower Hummus Nachos Recipe
By Batch Cooking Club
🔪Prep Time: 15 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes
2 large heads cauliflower
2 Tbsp olive oil or vegetable broth (divided)
1 ½ tsp sea salt (divided)
juice of 1 lemon (plus more to taste)
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 cup flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
¼ cup mint, finely chopped
1 roma tomato, diced
2 Persian cucumbers, diced (about 1 cup)
3 green onions, finely sliced
1 cup Lemon-Thyme Hummus
7 Baked Spinach Falafel (or store-bought)
½ cup Kalamata olives, sliced in half (optional)
1Bring the falafel to room temperature by removing from the refrigerator and placing on the kitchen countertop for an hour.
2Preheat the oven to 400°F.
3Peel the leaves away from the bottom of the cauliflower head and use a knife to gently cut away the florets from the stem into bite-sized pieces. Place them on a baking sheet lined with a silpat mat or parchment paper and toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of sea salt. Roast for about 10 to 15 minutes until tender.
4Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, whisk together the remaining tablespoon of olive oil, lemon juice and remaining ½ teaspoon of salt. Stir in the quinoa, parsley, mint, tomatoes, cucumber and onions. Mix well to combine. Taste and add more lemon juice or salt as desired.
5In a small mixing bowl, combine the hummus and ¼ cup of water.
6Place the cauliflower on a serving platter (or serve straight from the sheet pan) and scatter the quinoa tabbouleh on top. Break up the falafel into bite-sized pieces and add to the nachos. Drizzle with the hummus and garnish with the olives, if using.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
