Cauliflower Popcorn

My new obsession is cauliflower popcorn!
I have been wanting to make it fr a while now and finally did. Cauliflower is pretty cheap right now in the shuk and this is a great healthy very tasty snack or side. It doesn't take too long to make as long as you don't mind checking the cauliflower for bugs. So far I haven't had a problem with cauliflower, when I am choosing heads of cauliflower I push the florets a bit apart and peak in between to check for bugs, saves a lot of time and heartache.

The Kosher By Design Entertains book has a recipe that I based mine off of. I used less oil and didn't see the need for sugar. I also cooked it until the cauliflower was browning and getting a bit crispy.

This is so yummy, I want to go make it now!

This is the recipe from kbd entertains:

2 heads cauliflower, cut head into medium sized florets and discard stem
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4-1/2 teaspoon turmeric
6-8 tablespoons olive oil

preheat oven to 450. line a jelly roll pan or baking sheet with parchment paper. in a large bowl combine salt, sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika,turmeric and oil. add cauliflower and toss to evenly coat. place in a single layer on the prepared sheet. roast uncovered for 30-35 minutes until the largest pieces can be pierced with a fork. if the tops are starting to get too brown, toss the cauliflower during the baking process
