“Cheesy” Baked Cauliflower Poppers (Dairy-Free)


  • 2 heads of cauliflower
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of garlic salt
  • 1/2 – 1 cup of nutritional yeast (available at Fruitful Yield and Whole Foods) depending how “cheesy” you like them



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Wash and clean the cauliflower. Cut off and discard stem. Cut the cauliflower up into small pieces.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic salt and nutritional yeast. Add the cauliflower pieces and thoroughly coat each piece.
  4. Place cauliflower pieces onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  If you want to add a little more “cheese” sprinkle it on top at this time.  Bake for one hour and turn 3 times during cooking until each piece has a nice brown coloring. The browner and more caramelized they are the better.
  5. Remove from oven and enjoy!
