Roasting cauliflower slices gives them a tender-crisp texture perfect for piling with hearty nacho toppings. Swapping out chips for a big pile of florets and topping them with high-protein smoked tofu makes this healthy vegetarian recipe dinner-worthy. Look for smoked tofu in the refrigerated area of the produce section at the grocery store.
