Cauliflower Popcorn - Roasted Cauliflower

Cauliflower Popcorn - Roasted Cauliflower created by DianaEatingRichly

This is based on the recipe by Bob Blumer from the "Surreal Gourmet Bites" cookbook. This simple caramelization method transforms this much maligned veggie into a knock-your-socks-off side dish or sweet snack that you won't be able to get enough of!

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Trim the head of cauliflower, discarding the core and thick stems; cut florets into pieces about the size of ping-pong balls.
  • In a large bowl, combine the olive oil and salt, whisk, then add the cauliflower pieces and toss thoroughly.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment for easy cleanup (you can skip that, if you don't have any) then spread the cauliflower pieces on the sheet and roast for 1 hour, turning 3 or 4 times, until most of each piece has turned golden brown.
  • (The browner the cauliflower pieces turn, the more caramelization occurs and the sweeter they'll taste).
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
  • Where I got it: I originally heard about this recipe at Gail's Recipe Swap, where Josh posted it and many folks tried and loved it.

    Just the idea of being able to eat "popcorn" again, even if it is cauliflower.

    I mean it’s delicious this way but who hasn’t been making roasted cauliflower for forever? This hardly qualifies as a recipe! I was all excited for a new twist! Not sure what is popcorn about this.

    Not bad but didn't taste like popcorn. Just cauliflower
