Cheesy Cauliflower Popcorn

Cheesy cauliflower popcorn recipe Cheesy cauliflower popcorn recipe

Who'd have thought that munching on a head of cauliflower in front of Friday night TV could be so addictive? These moreish little bites will have you crying out for more. Use a vegetarian hard cheese in place of the parmesan if preferred. Or, for an Asian twist, try tossing the cauliflower pieces in 2 tablespoons of your favourite curry paste instead of the oil, paprika and cheese.
