Slim Snack: Cauliflower Popcorn
If you’re anything like me, spending a relaxing evening at home often calls for a good movie, my fuzzy blanket and a yummy snack. I recently tried this new recipe from FitnessRX and it turned out to be so delicious, I knew I had to share it! This Cauliflower “Popcorn” recipe is essentially just a roasted veggie, but it fully satisfied my late night craving for something salty and crunchy without extensive calories. Plus, its SUPER easy to make and allows you some freedom when it comes to the flavors you want to include.
Cauliflower Popcorn Recipe
Yields 4 servings
Each serving: 70 calories | 5g fat | 4g carbs | 2g protein
1 head cauliflower, cut into small florets
1.5 tablespoons olive oil or, for a sweeter taste, melted coconut oil
Cinnamon & sweetener of choice
Chili powder & cumin
1. Heat oven to 425° F.
2. In a large bowl, combine the cauliflower, seasoning and oil. Make sure each piece is coated.
3. Transfer to a baking sheet and spread in a single layer. Place in oven for about 18-20 minutes. Stir every five minutes to ensure the cauliflower is getting browned on all sides.
As soon as it came out of the oven, I sprinkled on Parmesan cheese and a little red pepper chili flakes for my cheesy, spicy treat!
Put your serving in a bowl or plate and enjoy!
