Today Kathy is sharing a healthy recipe with us!

I always like to try new recipes or try to adapt old favorites.  This is something that is so easy and so healthy.  You can have them as an appetizer or a vegetable with a meal.  I know that they will be on my list for tailgating parties!  So many snacks are unhealthy but not this one.

One cup of cauliflower is about 20 calories with 2 grams of fiber.

Cauliflower Poppers

  • 1 head of raw cauliflower
  • seasoning or spices of your choice (optional)
  • Dipping sauces (optional)

Cut the cauliflower in small florets. (Bite size)  Spray the bottom of a roasting pan with Pam or with olive oil in a Misto.  Arrange the cauliflower on the bottom, do not but them on top of each other.  Sprinkle your favorite seasonings or spices over the top.  I use Mrs Dash but whatever you like.  Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes.  No need to preheat the oven.  If you like them a little crispier, you can put them under the broiler for a few minutes after you are finished baking them.

If you like some dipping sauces with your poppers, you can use anything you like.  I have used BBQ sauce and a fat free ranch is good as well.  I would imagine that you could make some hot sauce for them too.  When I use the sauces, I just leave my cauliflower plain.  It is whatever you like.  I was amazed at how easy and delicious these were.  I hope that you enjoy them!
