Roasted Cauliflower Poppers

Day 2 of the 30 Day Tasty Vegetable Challenge

Today's recipe is courtesy of Aviva Goldfarb author of "SOS! The Six O'Clock Scramble to the Rescue: Earth-Friendly, Kid-Pleasing Dinners for Busy Families" - one of my favorite cookbooks. Thank you Aviva! I made this for my family last week and it definitely passed the "tasty" test.

Even avowed cauliflower haters can’t resist this recipe! The cauliflower gets tender and just a little crunchy at the edges and the flavor is addictive.

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt

To make Roasted Cauliflower Poppers, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Cut 1 head of cauliflower into florets. Toss them with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. chili powder, or more to taste, and 1/4 tsp. ground cumin, or more to taste, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Roast it for 20-30 minutes until the florets are browned and soft, tossing once.

  1. I am a Scramble subscriber and my kids LOVE this recipe. It made us all start having cauliflower more often (another favorite is cauliflower steaks with cauliflower puree)

  2. Thanks Serena. It's always nice to hear from other parents when a recipe is a hit at home.
