Welcome to Ditch the Wheat! Before you view the recipe I need to make sure you are aware of this. I hear it all the time... You're asking me to give up bread... Even my type 2 diabetic neighbour refuses to give up bread... There's so many reasons to ditch the bread: - gluten - GMO wheat - simple carbs (that cause weight gain) BUT it's so comforting to bite into a soft piece of bread smeared with butter. What if I told you there's bread you can eat that is Paleo and Keto friendly. --> CLICK HERE <--

THE BEST Cauliflower Popcorn - cauliflower popcorn oven, cauliflower popcorn keto, cauliflower popcorn paleo, cauliflower popcorn recipe, cauliflower popcorn low carb, cauliflower popcorn baked, cauliflower popcorn whole30, cauliflower popcorn healthy I’ve always wanted to try to make cauliflower popcorn when I started seeing it pop up in other blogs.  I researched dozens of cauliflower popcorn recipes to come up with my own.  Basically you cut the cauliflower into tiny pieces, put oil on them and bake.  I really enjoyed the results of my experiment.  Cauliflower popcorn does kinda taste like popcorn but… you must eat it warm because if you eat it cold it tastes soggy and nothing like popcorn. Will cauliflower popcorn make a permanent place in my heart?  Sadly no.  Kale chips is still holding the number one spot for snacks with chocolate bark coming in second.  I would encourage you to try this as something beyond a snack like a side dish for dinner.

Cauliflower Popcorn Recipe

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients for Cauliflower Popcorn

How to Make Cauliflower Popcorn

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Toss the cut up cauliflower in olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle salt all over the cauliflower. Spread on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes, flipping the cauliflower at least twice. The cauliflower will burn slightly.
  4. Take out of the oven and sprinkle onion powder and chives over all the pieces or your preferred popcorn flavouring.

Can I use frozen cauliflower?

I would suggest you do NOT use frozen cauliflower because the cauliflower popcorn will be more soggy. If you need a more convenient solution buy prechopped cauliflower that is still fresh.

Can I use regular popcorn seasoning on my Cauliflower Popcorn?

Yes, of course! Skip the onion powder and chives I suggested and use your favourite seasoning like cheddar, sour cream and onion etc. Make sure you sprinkle it on the cauliflower popcorn after it has finished roasting.

Can I make Cauliflower Popcorn Ahead of Time?

Yes, just reheat it in the oven! The cauliflower popcorn might not be as crispy as the first time but you could make a huge and store it in the fridge and reheat what you want to eat.

    I love roasted cauliflower! I think Cauliflower Popcorn is a much more whimsical and delicious-sounding name, though, so now I will refer to it as such. And congrats on making cauliflower popcorn look so pretty!

      Thanks! I’m slowly getting into roasted vegetables. I usually saute them.
