Thank you Anniespickns for reminding me about Cauliflower Popcorn! I had heard about this first from Nomi Shannon, but her version was dehydrated. And frankly, the longer one eats a highly raw diet, the less one favors dehydrated foods. Besides, I had tried the dehydrated cauliflower popcorn and found it too chewy… the boys wouldn’t eat it but fresh raw cauliflower popcorn? I had to try it!
“Not bad!” my husband said to cauliflower popcorn, a healthy snack packed full of B vitamins and amino acids from nutritional yeast and anti-carcinogens from cauliflower.
Here it is, so easy and simple!
Mix all together in a bowl:
sea salt (my general ‘rule’ is 1 tsp per 1 pound of food)
1/2 – 1 tbspn cumin or coriander (this makes a great match with nutritional yeast! use cumin for a spicier flavor, coriander for a milder one)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast or more, to taste (not a raw food, but many raw vegans eat it for B vitamins)
a head of cauliflower, florets cut into small bites like popcorn
Serve immediately. Tastes great even a day after.
