Cinnamon Caramelized Cauliflower: A Delightful Raw, Vegan Snack! I hope many of you will have a chance to explore it. One of the recipes that caught my attention right away when I recieved the book was Allyson’s recipe for cinnamon roasted cauliflower, which is exactly what it sounds like: cauliflower roasted with cinnamon and a touch of cornmeal. It looked fantastic, and the idea of snackable cauliflower seemed like a fun departure from using cauliflower as a side dish or in entrees, which is the norm. I wondered why I had never thought to make a sweet version of this old favorite, and Allyson’s use of cinnamon seemed like a perfect place to get started. Soon enough, cinnamon caramelized cauliflower was born. The recipe calls for dehydrating the cauliflower, rather than roasting (this gives it just a slight and irresistible crunch), but roasting is a fine option if you don’t have a dehydrator. Just look at each crispy, crunchy, sweet and salty bite! Here’s how to make the magic happen. Blend dates, almond butter, cinnamon, salt, and water in a high speed blender (or a food processor) till smooth. If the mixture is super thick, add a few more tablespoons of water as you go. Coat the cauliflower florets well in the date and cinnamon mixture: you want them drenched! Place on a Teflex-lined dehydrator sheet and dehydrate at 115 for 8-10 hours, or until dry and slightly crispy. Alternately, you can roast the cauliflower at 400 degrees Farenheit till it’s crispy on edges and tender on the inside (about 25 minutes). I couldn’t be more delighted by this recipe! Before I go, an announcement for all of my HOYA readers. Though it rarely occurs to me that you’re reading, occasionally I do get an email from a fellow Georgetown student who reads CR.
