Healthy Cauli-Popcorn

This meal is light and filling, for those who are sceptical about vegetarian meals give this a try.  Mushrooms tend to feel like meat when you cook them and having this meal as your “once a week veggie” day would be ideal.  Very easy to prepare and easier to cook.


1 hour 10 min



Good for:

  • Vegetarian snack
  • Healthy kid lunch
  • Cook with the kids, easy prep


  • 1 Large Cauliflower head
  • 1 tspn Salt
  • 4 tbsp Olive Oil

Kitchen things you’ll need:

  • Whisk
  • Baking/parchment Sheets
  • Cookie Sheet Tray

Making it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425° F (220 ° C)
  2. Trim the head of cauliflower, getting rid of the core and thick stems;
  3. Cut the florets into smaller pieces
  4. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil and salt, whisk, then add the cauliflower pieces and toss thoroughly.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment for easy cleanup (you can skip that, if you don’t have any) then spread the cauliflower pieces on the sheet.
  6. Roast for 1 hour, turning 3 or 4 times, until most of each piece has turned golden brown. The browner the cauliflower pieces turn, the more caramelization occurs and the sweeter they’ll taste.

Tips:  Kick it up a notch by adding rosemary, garlic salt, crushed Cheetos chips or a variety of other dry rubs to give a range of flavours.
