Spicy Cauliflower Poppers

Cauliflower has to be one of the most versatile vegetables there is. You can steam it, fry it, boil it, roast it or eat it raw. You can grate it and use it instead of rice, slice it and use it as a burger patty like I’ve done here, mix it into a sauce or just add in smaller pieces to curries and stews.

Or…. you can make cauliflower poppers from them! Who needs chicken poppers when you can have these instead? 😉

Both crunchy and spicy, these poppers are absolutely delicious! A word of warning though, make sure to be careful with the spicy sauce when you make these since different sauces have different amount of heat – add a little sauce at a time until you have a the heat you prefer.

    Is there anything I can substitute for the non-dairy yogurt? Nobody carries it in my area.

    Hi Michael! That’s a very good quesiton, I’m thinking they don’t stock non-dairy cream cheese either? Otherwise that would be a good option..

      The closest I could find is non-dairy sour cream, so I’ll give that a try. Being a vegan in West Texas is difficult!

        Non-dairy sour cream sounds like a great substitute, let me know how it turned out! I know how you feel, Sweden isn’t that great either when it comes to non-dairy products! 🙂

          I ended up using vegan mayo instead. It was too bland to use on sandwiches but worked great in this recipe. They turned out great!

          I used the vegan sour cream to make a dip with finely diced jalapenos and True Lime powder.
