Cauliflower Popcorn

I've been happy to find cauliflower on sale several weeks recently. My favorite way of cooking cauliflower remains Honey-Curry Roasted Cauliflower but I've been buying a lot of cauliflower so I thought I'd try a few alternate preparations too.

Cauliflower "Popcorn"
from Passover by Design -by Susie Fishbein

8 servings

Note: You will pop these gorgeous golden carb-friendly treats into your mouth like popcorn. The simple high-heat roasting method brings out the natural sugars of the vegetable and the spice combination works great in both flavor and color. Don't cut florets too small because they shrivel while cooking.

2 heads cauliflower, cut into medium-size florets, stems discarded
1 tsp fine sea salt
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4-1/2 tsp ground turmeric
6-8 Tbsp olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 450F
  2. Line a jelly-roll pan or baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the salt, sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, turmeric, and oil. Add cauliflower florets and toss to evenly coat.
  4. Place in a single layer onto the prepared sheet.
  5. Roast, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes, until the largest pieces can be pierced with a fork. If the tops are starting to get too brown, toss the cauliflower during the baking process.

MMMMM...I'm going to try this:) Thanks!

I hope you enjoy them. I really prefer the other roasted cauliflower recipe more though :)

I'm not a huge cauliflower fan but I'll have to try it roasted.

Roasting really brings out a nice flavor and texture with cauliflower :)

That looks absolutely delicious...:)

I tried this out tonight and it was a HUGE hit. I'm definitely going to give the other (your more preferred)cauliflower recipe a shot when I have the ingredients on hand:)

Very cool. Thanks so much for letting me know you tried it out and liked it :)
