Poppers made with peppers are spicy, deep fried and stuffed with gooey, melted cheese. For a lighter, milder, hot-from-the-oven snack, try these  creative veggie  bites. Crunchy chunks of cauliflower are tossed with olive oil and herbs, then coated with nutritional yeast for a cheesy taste without the dairy. Baked, not fried, they’re OK to pop in your mouth any time the munchies strike!
