I promise you, this is one healthy recipe you do not want to pass. And after you tried it, you will be keeping it in your ‘make again’ list. I crave for this all the time, and it’s a great dish to bring to pot luck parties. Preparation is so simple, and you basically let the oven do the cooking for you.

I love how the spices and slightly charred taste marry together, and the different texture of tenderness and slightly crispy edges adds a very nice dimension to the who dish. Trust me, these cauliflower poppers… once you pop, you can’t stop!
