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

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.

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.
