So let’s talk cauliflower. Love it or hate it? I’ve always loved cauliflower. I remember having it as a kid with broccoli and cheese sauce…SO good. But my family now for some reason decided they don’t like it. So I never make it. And I miss it.
But I’ve noticed that cauliflower is making a resurgence in the food world. Roasted cauliflower in particular. So I wanted to try it and see if it lived up to all the amazing reviews. And it does. Oh my does it ever. I had no idea that there was a better and more scrumptious way to eat cauliflower!
I pledge to never again ruin a piece of cauliflower by boiling it. Ever. I don’t think I’ve ever loved a vegetable more in my entire life. True story. These are the bomb!
And even better news? My husband loves them too. This coming from a guy who would never, I mean never, let a speck of cauliflower pass his lips. He loves these. Yes. It’s true. You can convert your so-called cauliflower haters.
They’re salty and peppery and crunchy!
Roasted Cauliflower aka Cauliflower Poppers
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 2-3 tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
- 1/4 salt
- fresh ground pepper
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Wash and dry the head of cauliflower.
Then cut the cauliflower up in to bite sized pieces.
In a bowl toss together the cauliflower with the oil and salt & pepper.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then spread the cauliflower out evenly.
Bake for 20-30 minutes, stirring frequently. You have to watch them closely so they don't burn, and you may have to turn them.
A head of cauliflower may seem like a lot, but it shrinks down after it's cooked. Trust me, you'll want more!
