Nice way to serve cauliflower, adds taste and colour to any plate. (substitute sharp cheddar if you wish)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. spray a microwave safe casserole with veggie oil.
  2. Place cauliflower florets in casserole.
  3. Add water if needed.
  4. Chop all the peppers and green onion and sprinkle over the cauliflower.
  5. Sprinkle salt and cayenne over to taste.
  6. Mix a little to distribute everything evenly.
  7. Cover and microwave on high for about 4 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender crisp.
  8. (depends on how much cauliflower is used).
  9. If you do not have a turntable in the micro, you might want to stir once, halfway through.
  10. Remove from oven and sprinkle olives and cheese over top.
  11. Cover and microwave for 10 to 20 seconds or just until the cheese barely melts.
  12. Remove from oven and let stand covered for 5 minutes before serving.
  13. I cook this in the serving dish, it does not have a lid, so I cover it with plastic wrap, with just one tiny steam vent, cut in the centre.
  14. Don't want to loose too much cooking steam.

This looked lovely and I very much enjoyed it however, it did not get great reviews from the company I had at Christmas. I would have given it a 5 star rating but the rest only felt it was worth 3 stars.

This is excellent! I made it on the stove today in my AMC cookware. It was a real delight! I had an uncle come home for lunch and he said to tell you that he loved it! I omitted the olives and cheese. I did add 2 potatoes and I fried the caulifower pieces in hot oil, drained it and then added the pieces to the capsicums. I also added jeera for seasoning. Besides that, I added a few chopped tomato pieces for additional colour. But this is truly excellent dish, colourful and can brighten up anyone's day!! My dad, mom and brother have said a special 'THANK YOU" to you for sharing this:)
