Cauliflower went on sale this week and I thought of this idea I'd seen floating around on the internet. It's a good thing I had three heads of cauliflower to work with! We polished this off with some baby carrots and pitted dates for a nice raw supper tonight. Pass the cayenne!
Raw Cauliflower "Popcorn"
1 head cauliflower, washed and cut/broken up into small pieces
salt or seasoned salt
nutritional yeast (not raw, but often used in raw cuisine)
other seasonings, as desired
The only directions you need are simple. In a bowl, drizzle the olive oil over the cauliflower. Add in the seasonings and stir well until evenly coated. You can vary this with your choice of seasonings. The only thing that is standard with the recipe is the cauliflower. It was very much like seasoning the usual corn variety of popcorn. Except there is no popping happening. Eat right away or see below for a dehydrated version.
Food dehydrator option: Mix up as usual, making sure not to over season. Put onto dehydrator trays and dry until desired, about 8-10 hours. The flavor will be much more concentrated when you do this as opposed to how it tasted freshly mixed before dehydrating. This option makes it even more crunchy.
