Cauliflower Popcorn Bites don’t really taste like popcorn, but they do look a little like it and they are moreish and yummy. So, that’s good enough, I think. The weather in Sydney has been non-stop rain for a week. We are all well and truly over it but one positive is that I like to experiment in the kitchen, and, Harry just loves to “help”. We came up with these little popcorn-looking bites when I was craving popcorn and knew I wouldn’t be able to get away with eating it in front of Harry.
My sister and Mum made a batch too, and both loved it.
Nutrition note: The humble cauliflower contains many important naturally occurring plant chemicals (phytochemicals) that work to protect the body from damage and disease. There’s nothing like a bit of spice to add flavour and fun to this everyday veg.Join us on Facebook for other foodie bits and pieces.
