Cauliflower Popcorn

8 c. small cauliflower florets, stems trimmed
3 tbsp. olive oil
¼ c. Grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. turmeric
½ tsp. salt

On large rimmed baking sheet, toss cauliflower florets with olive oil, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, turmeric and salt.

Roast in 475°F oven 25 to 30 minutes or until browned and tender. Serve immediately.

There are tons of variations, Google cauliflower popcorn.

Both sound delish! Thanks Jay and Cruiser!

Hmm. I remembered something from Gail on this subject, and look what I found:

(And this.) I might even try that soup after all this time.

I just passed my 8-year anniversary here and didn’t even notice it. Maybe I’ll celebrate with cauliflower instead of a cake. Or pancakes.

The Gail question contains my favorite cauliflower recipe, which if you like it with cheese sauce, you will love.

Another way I have been eating it lately is roasted with turmeric and butter (or olive oil).

@Jeruba I thought I remembered a cauliflower question but thought it would be nice to get off politics and on cooking for a while. Thanks for posting the link.

@marinelife And with turmeric! Cool!

Oh – didn’t realize it was my question! Still searching for the answers, I guess. :-)

Roasted whole cauliflower is really good.

I’ve tried This Version which is pretty spicy and has an East Indian flavor palette.

This Version is roasted with olive oil, herbs and Parmesan cheese.

I have also made this Cauliflower Tabouli where the cauliflower subs for the bulgur wheat. It’s also nice for folks who are trying to avoid gluten.

I almost exclusively use cauliflower nowadays in place of noodles in what is similar to baked mac and cheese. I cut up the cauliflower into bite sized pieces, parboil them for about 3 minutes and then just use the same way you would use noodles in a baked casserole with a cheese roux. Here is a basic recipe for standard mac and cheese from Alton Brown. When I make my cauliflower casserole, I also add in sautéed mushrooms and sometimes some crumbled (fake) bacon, then top it with panko bread crumbs before baking.

I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for Buffalo Cauliflower.

I always wanted to try the Cauliflower Fried Rice recipe, but have not yet:

@nightwolf5 It’s pretty good, but it isn’t rice. :(

@marinelife the recipes for riced cauliflower is for people that have elevated A1C or gluclose. It is a non-starch substitute.

marinelife's avatar

@Tropical_Willie I know that’s why I eat it. It does make a fine substitute, but it’s not rice.
