Cauliflower Popcorn

This is from Angi Wuebben in response to me saying "the only thing I miss on the diet is popcorn!" However, this tastes a little like fried okra to me, which is something else this Southern Belle misses! I wonder if you can do the same with okra?!

For a picture and other reciptes visit at Mrs. Dash's website:

Cauliflower Popcorn
1 head of cauliflower
3 Tbsp. (45mL) olive oil (or Canola/Enova oil would be best--your body does not absorb it!)
2 Tbsp. (30mL) Mrs. Dash® Table Blend
Preheat oven to 450°F (220°C).
Cut out and discard cauliflower core and thick stems. Trim remaining cauliflower into florets the size of popcorn.
Toss thoroughly in a bowl with olive oil and Mrs. Dash® Table Blend.
Spread cauliflower on a sheet pan and roast for approximately 60 minutes, or until nicely browned (that's the carmelization process converting the dormant natural sugars into sweetness).
Turn three or four times during roasting. The browner the florets, the sweeter they will taste. Serve immediately.
