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.
- 1 cauliflower head
- 1/2 cup non-dairy yogurt
- 1/2 cup hot sauce (such as Chipotle, BBQ or Sriracha sauce)
- 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- Panko bread crumbs
- Preheat the oven at 220°C/430F. Combine non-dairy yogurt, sauce, nutritional yeast and garlic powder in a bowl.
- Break apart the cauliflower into smaller florets and dip in the yogurt sauce. Then roll them in the panko bread crumbs and spread out on a baking sheet.
- Cook in the oven for 20–25 min until they look crispy. Serve alone or with a dip!
