Toddlers Treats – Cauliflower Crunchies

Hi guys,

Welcome back for another week of Toddler treats. This week I have something quite different and it’s something that Annabelle is forever picking out of the vegetables on her plate and just…discarding onto the floor: Cauliflower. However this weeks easy-peasy recipe is done with a little twist. Check them out and I’ll tell you all about it…
caul1Annabelle has this love for dipping her food into sauces, red sauce in particular. So I figured make a vegetable differently than usual, season it a little and give her a way to enjoy it rather than throw it away.

What you’ll need:

– Cauliflower
– Seasoning {anything you like, I used a sprinkle of salt, pepper and parsley}

The How-tos!:

All I did was snip off a few buds of the cauliflower and pop them onto a baking tray. I drizzled them with olive oil, added the seasoning of choice and popped them into the oven on 180 degrees for around 20 minutes {or until golden brown}. That simple!
caul2Super duper simple and they really looked a lot different than how I would normally serve cauliflower, so now all I needed was my little taste tester and she what she thought.

I do hope you liked it and decide to have a go at making it yourself. If you do I’d love for you to hashtag #ToddlerTreats over on Twitter and tag me in, I’d love to see your dishes! Also if you missed previous weeks, they can all be found on my Toddler Treats page right here on the blog or you can pop over to my Pinterest board.

See you next week for more yummy treats!! I’m also linking up with the fabulous Grace from Eats Amazing and her linky Fun Food Friday & Victorias PoCoLo!

    Love this idea – like you say, making vegetables in a slightly different way can make all the difference!

    I do exactly this with cauliflower when I am making homemade soup! I sprinkle it with thyme and nutmeg and add some onions too! Delish! Thank you for linking to PoCoLo 🙂 x

    Great to see a different way that works. N is the other way round. Won’t eat roasted cauliflower although will eat it boiled and raw.

    I know you meant this to be a toddler treat, but I’m honestly tempted to try it for myself! It’s so simple and easy and looks so delicious!
