The following recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks, Glutton For Pleasure: Signature Recipes, Epic Stories, and Surreal Etiquette. This cookbook puts the f in fun cooking and eating.
The recipe is one that I make often. My entire family loves this healthy snack, so it’s perfect for snacks for ballgames, The Biggest Loser (after all, I’m convinced Bob Harper sees through the tv), Survivor, etc. Make it, you’ll love it.
Bob Blumer’s Cauliflower Popcorn
1 head cauliflower
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon salt
Preheat oven to 425F. Cut out and discard cauliflower core and thick stems. Trim remaining cauliflower into florets the size of golf balls. In a large bowl, add cauliflower, olive oil, and salt. Toss thoroughly. Spread cauliflower on a baking sheet (Lined with parchment paper, if available, for easy cleanup). Roast for 1 hour, or until much of each floret has become golden brown. (That’s the caramelization process converting the dormant natural sugars into sweetness. The browner the florets, the sweeter they will taste.) Turn 3 or 4 times during roasting.
Use crumpled up aluminum foil or paper towels to create a false bottom in your popcorn container, fill it with cauliflower, and serve immediately.
I serve it in plastic Pop Corn Containers to up the whole fun vibe. These are delicious.
