Sometimes I get the craving for french fries. Or fried carbs. Or basically anything that has the potential to clog my arteries and kill me. But we all have those cravings now and again! And for the most part, I believe in satisfying cravings so you don’t put yourself into some weird mode where you end up bingeing later. However, if you swap out that craving with something a tad more healthy, then why not I say!
I found this recipe by Delighted Momma and fell in love. I never even liked cauliflower much before these poppers (and learning to rice the stuff). If french fries had a vegetable cousin, I’m convinced these poppers would be it.
Now I can be a space case, so I only used one head of cauliflower for this recipe. With 1/4 cup olive oil and some guesswork on the salt and pepper. But whatever! The recipe is so easy, there’s not too many ways you can really screw it up. It still turned out muy delicioso for me.
(P.S. If you are indeed a space case like me and only use one head of cauliflower, there are about 230 calories or less–since you don’t technically eat all the olive oil–per 1/3 of the cauliflower head).
