Popcorn Cauliflower

Recipe By : Josh - Gail's Recipe Swap
Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Tried & True Vegetables

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 Head Cauliflower
4 Tablespoons Olive Oil -- or less
1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Cut out and discard cauliflower core and thick stems. Trim remaining cauliflower into florets the size of golf balls. In a large bowl, add cauliflower, olive oil, and salt.
Toss thoroughly.

Spread cauliflower on a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper, if available, for easy cleanup). Roast for 1 hour, or until much of each floret has become golden brown. (That's the carmelization process converting the dormant natural sugars into sweetness. The
browner the florets, the sweeter they will taste.) Turn 3 or 4 times during roasting.

serve immediately.

ACTIVE PREP: 10 minutes.


SHORTCUTS: Buy the precut cauliflower in
lazy boy section of the produce department.

ADVANCE WORK: Raw cauliflower can be precut and refrigerated for up to 2 days in an airtight bag or a bowl of water. With minimal sacrifice, cauliflower can be cooked earlier in the day and reheated in a 450-degree oven for 10 minutes.
