And, after trying it, I ran out to the store and got two more heads of cauliflower and roasted them up, too!
This is wonderfully good for you, too. According to Sparkrecipes, a third a head of cauliflower has only a little over 100 calories, 7g of fiber, and also has folate, iron, Vitamin C, Vitamin B-6... it's a good snack!

Roasted Cauliflower "Popcorn"
1 head cauliflower
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Break the cauliflower up into small florets. Put into a bowl and add olive oil. Shake to coat.
|It's fun to get help when you are shaking the cauliflower|
Roast for 30-40 minutes, shaking occasionally. Remove when lightly browned and crispy and enjoy.
Okay, I have never been a lover of cauliflower but this looks amazing!!ReplyDelete
OMG! Must try this. Am pinning!ReplyDelete
I have a cauliflower in my fridge. Making this tonight. Thanks!! :)ReplyDelete
I just now pulled this out of the oven. DIVINE!!! Question - I didn't have parchment paper so I made them anyway, but does that help to make it crispy?ReplyDelete
I too want to know if parchment is necessary and if it makes it crispier.ReplyDelete
I use parchment mostly for easy clean up.. don't know if it helps with crispiness. When my second batch wasn't as crispy, I just cooked it longer and it turned out great. (I need to make another batch!)Delete
Thanks! My oven was already in use for dinner so I made garlic Parmesan mashed cauliflower and it was so good! I have another head for 'popcorn'.Delete
Made this tonight Astrid. We loved it! Now I'm pinning it. ;)ReplyDelete
I love it roasted, too, but omit any cheese. Just OO and kosher salt. Mmmmmm.ReplyDelete
Made this last night - between the fam, we ate two heads of cauliflower with no left overs. Not all loved it, but most did - I will def. make it again. Thanks for the great idea. - LisaReplyDelete
Does it reheat.. or is this a make it and eat it sort of thing? I have my head of cauliflower all cut up in the fridge to make this tomorrow! :)ReplyDelete
It is best and crispiest fresh, but I've put it in the kids' lunchboxes and they have eaten it cold/room temperature without problems. Hope that you like it! :)ReplyDelete
I loved it!ReplyDelete
My 8 year old declared this "super delicious"! I'll definitely be making more! I added a little cheese when it came out of the oven also. I hope it packs well in lunches because she requested it in hers. Thanks so much!ReplyDelete
