You’ll need :

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut core out and break into bite-sized florets the size of popcorn

  2. Put the cauliflower florets into a gallon-size plastic zipper bag. 
  3. In a small bowl, combine the spices and oil. Mix to combine. 
  4. Add the oil mixture to the cauliflower. Shake until all the cauliflower is evenly coated.
  5. Spread the cauliflower onto the two prepared baking sheets and separate so the florets are not touching.

I made your recipe for popcorn cauliflower this year at Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit! I was looking for an easy, healthy vegetable side, and this was perfect. Everyone loved it. I also did a pan of popcorn broccoli and mixed them together for serving. Here are my pictures. Thank you for the inspiration, Gigi Gaggero . You are the best! Donna John
