Recipe Directions

  • 1. Break up an entire head of cauliflower into florets. Your sizes will vary, but think popcorn sized. :) Place florets into a huge bowl.
  • 2. Place all remaining ingredients on top of the cauliflower florets and stir gently and for quite a while to ensure that all of the florets are coated with the craycray delicious flavours.
  • 3. Line two dehydrator trays with parchment paper. Gently place the coated florets onto the parchment-paper lined trays.
  • 4. Dehydrate for an hour on high (140 degrees F). Then lower the temperature to 110F for another 8-10 hours. Florets will crisp up and shrink about half in size.
  • 5. Eat immediately, preferably in front of the TV while watching a good movie!

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

These are cauliflower cheesy popcorn craziness that explode in your mouth with fabulous popcorn and cheesy and buttery flavor.

If you're not sure how long to dehydrate these for, best to opt for "over-drying" versus "under-drying." They are more popcorn-like the drier they are. In this picture they still have some moisture left in them because I couldn't wait for them to finish before eating! I like it when they are super small and dried out best, though.

It's best to eat these immediately because they will lose their crispness quite quickly (because they will absorb the moisture in the air).

Re: measuring cauliflower, 4 cups of cauliflower is approximately 1 head of cauliflower. 

 PS: These also taste really good undehydrated, so feel free to make them and eat them totally raw (undehydrated). They taste different, but still good.

PPS: This recipe is dedicated to Gail B. who first introduced me to the idea of making cauliflower popcorn. Mwaw!

I find that some recipes that don't call for oil are missing "something". Oil is a flavor carrier as well as a calorie powerhouse. Our bodies react to fat / calorie rich food. So I did that even though I'm dehydrating something adding a little fat like olive oil or nuts makes the recipe whole.

Hi JoAnne, you are totally right that adding the oil will lengthen the dehydrating time. In some recipes though - complete dryness isn't the ideal texture, because sometimes some moistness in the recipe is nice. Great point though, and sometimes no oil is preferred depending on the recipe. Glad to have you here. Great question!
