I ❤ Cauliflower!!! I am just finding more and more recipes that cauliflower lends itself to! The best part? It’s SO good for you!
Pretty awesome, huh? So, as I’m sitting here professing my love for this awesome veggie, I also get to share with you my latest cauliflower creation – Cauliflower Poppers! These bite-size yummies make for an awesome healthy snack, and you can flavor them in so many different ways. The recipe I’m going to share with you is just a basic recipe, but you could easily change the seasonings, or add in things like cheese, other veggies, or meat to turn them into whatever you would like!
I used italian seasoning and garlic granules as seasoning (along with a bit of sea salt), and I also added in some chopped red onion. This concoction dipped in some marinara sauce tastes a bit like pizza! I think next time, I may add in some cheese, olives, and tomatoes to make them even more pizza themed. Really, you could make these into little curry bites, taco flavored bites…anything! The possibilities are endless, so don’t be afraid to get creative!
- 1 large cauliflower head (about 4 cups of cauliflower rice)
- 1 cup chopped red onion
- 3 eggs
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp. garlic granules
1.) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash your cauliflower, dry completely, chop into florets, and place the florets in a food processor. Process on high to create a “cauliflower rice”.
2.) Add the cauliflower rice, eggs, olive oil, garlic granules, italian seasoning, and onions to a large bowl. Stir to combine completely.
3.) Spray a mini muffin tin with olive oil. Fill the tins with the cauliflower mixture. Press into tin firmly so it is packed down and will set more easily. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes and the cauliflower is lightly browned.
4.) Use a spoon to remove the cauliflower poppers from the muffin tin.
YUM-O! Enjoy! 🙂
