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!

I know I say it ALOT but yummmmmm! I didn't have any grainy mustard, just regular old yellow, but it still turned out great! I made this alongside my boca burger, and they were just as tasty and far healthier than a pile of greasy french fries.  I made them a little spicy too by adding some red chili flakes and that was super good! Thanks so much for this, it will definately be added into the rotation!!

;)b YUM!!! These were sooo good! Never had anything like this before. I wish I had 3 more heads of cauliflower... I only had one and it was gone in seconds!!

The only change I made was that I used basil instead of dill because I was out. I bet dill would be even better! (If that's possible!)

Thanks for this awesome recipe!!!!!!


Yes!  These are delicious.  My bf and I eat this regularly now and I often make an oil-less version of the mustard and yeast paste just to dip veggies in.  Gold star recipe for sure ;)b


Mmmm, this is super delicious!  I've had this recipe in my file for quite some time and finally got around to making it this evening.  I'm sorry that I waited so long.  This cauliflower is really flavorful with a great tangy kick from the lemon and dijon.  I let my cauliflower bake a little longer, closer to 55 minutes to an hour; this got the cauliflower nicely browned and tasty.  I did make sure I oiled my baking pan beforehand and had no problems with sticking.  I'm definitely going to make this recipe again, probably soon.  ;)b


so so good! I could just eat a whole head of cauliflower like this for dinner!


this idea rules and is one of my favorite ways to eat cauliflower


Yes, yum.

I added a bunch of garlicy dressing to the mix though, because I needed a lot of wet to mix with my huge head of cauliflower. That I ate. All of. It was great!


OMG i HAVE to try these ASAP!!! I love califlower and dijon, so together CANNOT be bad......I will keep you guys updated as soon as I try them, they sound like such a treat!



Yum! I didn't change anything..(I didn't measure), but these are great. Our favorite way to have cauliflower, so far. Oh, I did use horseradish mustard instead of dijon.  :)


AMAZING!!! Made to many times to count in the past month--nutritous and delicous!
