Cauliflower Poppers

What you need: 

1 large head cauliflower, chopped to florets
juice of 1 lemon
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried dill
fresh black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk together the remaining ingredients.
2. Toss with the cauliflower.
3. Bake for 40 minutes, stirring once about halfway through the cooking time.
They're ready when they get nicely browned and they're tender but not mushy. I like to leave mine in until they get chewy blackened parts, but that's just me.
These are soooo good - sometimes when I want a light dinner I'll just make a batch and eat it all myself, easily as good as French fries!

Preparation Time:

Cooking Time:

Servings:

So easy, yet so delicious! These are surprisingly good! They will definitely take the place of french fries in my home!

oh wow! i got a huge head of cauliflower on sale today. i was assuming i'd be making a lot of curried cauliflower soup. forget that! this stuff rocks. i just did 1/4 of a head to test. it never even made it to a plate. i pulled it out of the oven while i was finishing the rest of dinner. no one else in my house really cares for cauliflower. so i ate it all! this is by far my favorite cauliflower recipe ever. thanks!

Alright, this may sound a little crazzzzzzy BUT, I thought this was so good that I tried it again the very next night with brussel sprouts!!! Again, super delicious. I would imagine that this marinade goes well with all sorts of vegetables. :)>>>

I have had this recipe in my box for a really long time just waiting for cauliflower to be in season and or/go on sale.

Well it finally happened and I'm glad it did because this was delicious! I was somewhat skeptical at first about the spice mixture but they blended very well. I just added about 3/4 tsp of cayenne to give it a little bit of a kick (i love spicy) which I thought was a nice addition. I also broiled them for about 1 minute at the very end to ensure that they'd be crispy and brown on the outside.

I think I have found my new substitute for greasy fries...thanks so much!

Ok, these were definitely different.  The flavor combination was a bit too unusual to me probably since I am not the biggest dill fan or mustard fan for that matter.  I will try other spice combinations since I love cauliflower. Sorry to crash the popper party.  I did actually eat quite a bit to be honest with you.  Maybe they will grow on me when I finish eating the batch tomorrow.

These were pretty good. My head of cauliflower must have been HUGE because I could have used more sauce for them. Also 35 minutes in the oven was only enough to brown only some of them the teeniest bit. They were however tasty. Next time I will not eyeball the amount of lemon juice as I think mine were too tangy.

Mmmmmmm...  Soooo good.  I ate them all by myself in one sitting.  It's not often I get to respond to "What did you have for dinner?" with "A head of cauliflower."

Mmm... these are CRAZY good.  The only changes I made were that I used flax oil instead of olive and only baked them for about 35 minutes.  I just ate the entire recipe, lol.  Next time I think I'll use a liiittle bit less salt, but even still, these were super tasty.  I'll totally be making these again.
