ingredients

directions

  • spray a microwave safe casserole with veggie oil.
  • Place cauliflower florets in casserole.
  • Add water if needed.
  • Chop all the peppers and green onion and sprinkle over the cauliflower.
  • Sprinkle salt and cayenne over to taste.
  • Mix a little to distribute everything evenly.
  • Cover and microwave on high for about 4 minutes or until the cauliflower is tender crisp.
  • (depends on how much cauliflower is used).
  • If you do not have a turntable in the micro, you might want to stir once, halfway through.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle olives and cheese over top.
  • Cover and microwave for 10 to 20 seconds or just until the cheese barely melts.
  • Remove from oven and let stand covered for 5 minutes before serving.
  • 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.
  • Don't want to loose too much cooking steam.

    This was great! I'm against micro-cooking, so I did it in a covered dish (w/ a little water) in the oven at the same time that I was cooking meatloaf. If took about 1/2 hour, stirring half way between. My family loved it, but perhaps because I added 1/2 cup cheddar too. It was perfect. Thanks. BTW, mine wasn't raw or soggy...

    I love cauliflower but not RAW - I thought this would taste like it was steamed - after cooking the time recommended it was still raw -I kept on increasing the time and then the peppers got soggy. Not a keeper for us but for raw veggie lovers this might be the one! Thanks submitter.

    fantastic and fast and so easy. love the microwave. I don't know about the reviewer who thought it was 'bland'. Goodness this has so many flavors and punch to it. Made it just as the recipe called for - no ingredients were left out. Truly a keeper.
