Zippy Cheese Cauliflower

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kingshearte

My university roommate thought I was insane when I told her this was my favourite way to eat cauliflower, but she tried it and started making it this way herself, too. Quantities of everything (including the cauliflower itself) are all sort of approximate, and can be varied to suit your taste/appetite.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Steam the cauliflower until just slightly underdone.
  2. While the cauliflower is cooking, mix the mayonnaise and mustard together.
  3. When the cauliflower is done, transfer it to a microwave-safe dish and spread the mustard-mayonnaise over it.
  4. Cover with cheese.
  5. Microwave for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese melts.
  6. Or, if whatever else you're cooking isn't done yet, you can just cover the cauliflower and lets its heat melt the cheese until you're ready to serve.
