Skip the chips and use slabs of roasted cauliflower instead! I opted for these toppings because they were balanced and played well off each other, but you can change them up as you please.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place onion slices in a small colander. Bring 2 to 3 cups water to a boil in a kettle. Pour over onion and let drain.

  • Mix vinegar, salt, sugar, and cumin together in a jar. Mix in onion slices. Cover and place in the refrigerator.

  • Cut cauliflower in half from top to bottom. Place each half flat against the cutting board. Cut into 1/2-inch slices. Arrange carefully on the prepared baking sheet, trying to keep slices intact. Drizzle olive oil over cauliflower; season with salt and pepper.

  • Roast cauliflower in the preheated oven until evenly browned, about 30 minutes.

  • Combine avocado, sour cream, lime juice, 1 tablespoon cilantro, and salt in a blender. Blend until creamy and smooth.

  • Heat black beans in a small saucepan until heated through, about 5 minutes.

  • Spoon warmed beans over cauliflower. Dollop avocado crema over beans. Scatter pickled onion slices, cherry tomatoes, and queso fresco over crema. Garnish with 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
