Cauliflower Popcorn

This is our latest compromise on how to eat cauliflower--Curly's favorite vegetable.  She usually likes it steamed.  Baldy and I prefer it roasted.  But this version is a perfect blend of the two--lightly roasted to enhance flavor but still crisp-tender so Curly loves it.  Also the curry powder flavor is very understated.  From Mel's Kitchen Cafe.

1 medium head cauliflower
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon curry powder

Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.

Wash and core the cauliflower and cut the florets into bite-size pieces. Place in a large bowl. Toss the cauliflower with the olive oil, salt and curry powder.

Turn out the cauliflower onto a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 16-18 minutes, stirring every 6-7 minutes, until the cauliflower is browned in spots and is crisp-tender. Serve immediately.
