Cheesy Cauliflower Popcorn

by Sharon Hearne Smith


Who'd have thought that munching on a head of cauliflower in front of Friday night TV could be so addictive? These moreish little bites will have you crying out for more. Use a vegetarian hard cheese in place of the parmesan if preferred. Or, for an Asian twist, try tossing the cauliflower pieces in 2 tablespoons of your favourite curry paste instead of the oil, paprika and cheese.

Preparation time
5 Minutes
Cooking time
30 Minutes


Serves: 2 People

  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Paprika (optional)
  • 50 g Parmesan Cheese finely grated
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 x SuperValu Cauliflower


1. Preheat the oven to 200oC/gas mark 6.

2. Trim the cauliflower and cut it into tiny florets, the size of popcorn. Toss in a large bowl with the oil, paprika, if using and some salt and pepper until evenly coated. Tip out onto a large roasting tray and arrange in a single layer.

3. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Toss occasionally and sprinkle the cheese over for the last 5 minutes. The cauliflower should be golden and tender.

4. Divide evenly between individual serving bowls or popcorn boxes and serve at once.
