:wave: Lubajo! , It's nice to hear from you again! I miss you and your sister, it would be great if you decide to join us again. Here's that recipe you requested in the meantime -

Cauliflower popcorn

1 head of cauliflower
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon of salt (or, to taste or for a salt-free alternative, Mrs. Dash table blend)

Preheat oven to 425 F. Cut out and discard cauliflower core and thick stems. Trim remaining cauliflower into florets the size of golf balls. In a large bowl, add cauliflower, olive oil, and salt. Toss thoroughly. Spread cauliflower on a baking sheet (lined with parchment paper, if available for easy cleanup). Roast for 1 hour, or until much of each floret has become golden brown. (that's the caramelization process converting the dormant natural sugars into sweetness. The browner the florets, the sweeter they will taste.) Turn 3 or 4 times during roasting. Use crumbled up aluminum foil or paper towels to create a false bottom in your popcorn container, fill it with cauliflower, and serve immediately.

oooh this looks good I didn't see these before!!
could you use frozen?
would probably rock with old bay seasoning! (my new addiction)

Mine have never turned out crunchy, but others have claimed they've had great success with this recipe. It is still good, though.
I've always used fresh cauliflower, KO I don't think frozen would work too well. Try it, though, and let us know!
