Cauliflower Popcorn #8,400,001

Uncategorized Mar 15, 2021

Okay.  I’ll admit it.  I’ve been on a bit of a “cauliflower kick” lately.  This recipe is too good to keep to myself though.  (That would be selfish.)  So I’ll share.

If you google “Cauliflower Popcorn” you will get a lot of hits. A lot a lot a lot.   I can’t speak for the other 8,400,000 versions of this recipe , but this vegan version is goodReally good. OMG, my husband and I effortlessly polished off an entire head of cauliflower by ourselves in one sitting—popcorn style!

I can’t exactly remember where this recipe originated from, which is too bad because I really would like to thank the contributor.  Whoever you are out there— thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you!

First, a word about nutritional yeast:

It is a great source of B vitamins.  It’s got trace minerals needed for gene regulation, metabolism, growth, and immunity.  One tablespoon contains 2 grams of protein, containing all nine essential amino acids (YAY!) that humans must get from food.  See, what did I tell you?  Nutritious!  Oh, did I mention it tastes wonderful, too? You can find this item in a health food store or the health food aisle of your supermarket. 

Now with no further ado, here is the recipe you have been waiting for.



1 head cauliflower, broken into small florets

¼ cup coconut oil, melted (organic and unrefined, of course)

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 tsp chili powder (optional but recommended)

¼ cup nutritional yeast (not optional if you’re going for that nice “cheesy” flavour)

Salt and pepper to taste

  • Preheat oven to 450°F. 
  • Place cauliflower florets in a large bowl.
  • Add oil and toss.
  • Add seasonings and toss again.
  • Transfer mixture onto a greased baking dish and place in oven.
  • Roast for 15 minutes. Toss, and roast for 15 minutes more.

Best served immediately, hot and fresh from the oven.  Enjoy as a snack, or as a delicious side dish to any meal.
