Living a low carb lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to eat bland, boring food. My cousin told me about a recipe she makes with roasted cauliflower and seasoning and this simple recipe idea for Buffalo Popcorn was born. Though it’s so easy that you don’t even really need a recipe to follow and you can change up the seasoning to whatever you like.
All you’ll need is a head of cauliflower, oil and some popcorn seasoning. I bought the Kernels Popcorn seasoning in Buffalo Wing flavour. Feel free to switch it out to whatever one you have in your pantry.
The key thing you have to do is cut the cauliflower into small florets. It looks more like popcorn that way and will roast faster. I bake mine for 20 minutes in the oven. You can see from the photos that they were just starting to brown.
Talk about an addicting, yet guilt-free snack. Normally, I’d feel bad about eating a whole bag of popcorn. I didn’t bat an eyelash eating a whole container of this recipe though!
I prefer to serve it hot and fresh out of the oven. My kids, however, knew it wasn’t really popcorn and asked for the real thing. That’s ok. More for me!
Here’s a quick shout out to my other low carb recipes: Keto Cauliflower Ziti, Chicken and Egg Ramekins, Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Spicy Pepper Chicken, Healthy Shepherd’s Pie and the popular Low Carb Meal Plan.
