Snacks! Cauliflower Poppers

SONY DSC

I’m on the hunt for fun, easy, healthy snacks. I like to have snacks at work to keep me from going downstairs and grabbing some coffee (with a shortbread cookie). I found these cauliflower poppers recipe on the Weight Watchers website. I’m not a huge fan of cauliflower, but I liked the idea of adding a different flavor to them, and they looked pretty easy to make.

Cut up a head of cauliflower in to snack-able bits.

Sprinkle them with 1/2 teaspoons each of cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Toss and bake for 10 minutes. Super easy, right?

I’m not the biggest fan of cumin, but I’d like to try these again. I’m not sure with what. I think I’ll try dill or mustard next time. Or maybe something sweet like cocoa powder or cinnamon. Is that too weird? I’ll have to try to find out.
