How to Make Raw Cauliflower "Popcorn"

By Kyla Miller, R.H.N.;

Popcorn has been an important staple for many cultures. In particular it has been historically used by the Aztecs not only as an important food, but  it was  also used as decoration for ceremonial headdresses, necklaces and ornaments on statues of their gods, including Tlaloc, the god of rain and fertility. Today we celebrate this magnificent food; however, we offer you an alternative to those who are intolerant to the seed. We have concocted a raw alternative to popcorn using cauliflower. This alternative also proves to be extremely healthy for you, so don't be shy, feel free to dig in. We hope you enjoy this tasty treat as much as we do!

Raw Cauliflower "Popcorn"

  •  1/2 -1 whole head of organic/local cauliflower 
  • 4 tbsp of olive oil ( or desired taste)
  • 2-3 pinches of Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt (Kelp granules are also a great alternative to salt)
  • 1/2-1tsp of chili powder (or desired taste)
  • 4-5 tbsp of *nutritional yeast  to give it a "cheezy" flavour (


Cut up the cauliflower into bit-sized pieces and then add the ingredients. That's it! Enjoy the goodness it has to offer!

*Important Note: Nutritional yeast DOES NOT contain active yeast.  It is generally considered acceptable in moderate amounts for those following a diet designed to manage Candida albicans. Also, remember that there is a significant difference between brewer’s yeast and nutritional yeast.

Nutritional yeast is a tasty product you can find in natural foods markets. These yellow flakes are a pure strain of yeast called Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In the same family as edible mushrooms, yeast has been used in food and beverage production for more than 5,000 years. Today, the same strain is used to brew beer, make wine, and leaven breads as well as develop the nutritionally-rich food called nutritional yeast.

We hope you love this delicious treat! Add whatever you'd like to it! Stay happy and healthy, and remember, always follow your instincts.
