I heard this recipe onthe other day (I forget the program), where they proclaimed kids will love it.
What you need:
- 1 head of cauliflower
- olive oil
- spoon or bowl cover
- baking sheet or roasting pan
What to do:
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Cut out and discard cauliflower core and thick stems.
- Break apart florets into big popcorn size pieces and place in bowl.
- Pour olive oil over florets and sprinkle with salt.
- If you have the bowl’s cover, cover it and shake the mixture up; else, stir it well.
- Spread the florets evenly on the baking sheet or pan.
- Bake for about an hour, until the florets are evenly brown.
The browning is caused by sugars caramelizing, which is triggered by the high heat. The radio guy said kids will love it; it’s sweet and fun to make.
I haven’t tried it yet. How about trying it in one of your cooking segments, Phillip? It’s not a Newfoundland dish, but what the hell.
Update (Jan. 18, 2006): I recorded a video of my daughter and I making this. Phillip edited it.
