This is a great snack when you want something salty to nosh on. I have found that cauliflower is incredibly versatile and easy to prepare. These are a great alternative to chips and you can snack away, guilt free!

Cauliflower Poppers

1 head of cauliflower
1/3 cup miso paste
2 Tbsp water
1 tsp curry powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chop cauliflower into bite sized florets. In a separate bowl, whisk together the miso paste, water, and curry powder. Combine with the cauliflower and coat thinly and evenly. Place the florets on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Flipping half way to ensure even crispiness. Cook until golden and crisp.

I used Cold Mountain “Kyoto White Miso Paste – less sodium” which is available at Whole Foods.
If you are looking for a lighter cauliflower popper recipe to try, spray the florets with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle with your favorite salt free seasoning such as garlic, red pepper flakes, turmeric, or curry just to name a few. Now, go snack away!

    Are these supposed to get crispy? I love the taste but they were soft. I cooked them for well over 30 minutes.

      Hi Rachelle! Yes they should get crispy! Did you try flipping them and baking them a little longer?
