Easy Not So Cheesy Cauliflower
June 11, 2010 § Leave a comment
I love cauliflower. My son tolerated it, until I made it this way, then the entire bowl is practically licked clean! So, if you have picky eaters, I would suggest giving this one a try.
1 head cauliflower (you can use frozen if you like)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup mayonnaise (not salad dressing)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Rinse, drain, and cut cauliflower into bite sized pieces, discarding the core.
In a medium saucepot, add 1/2 cup water, and the cauliflower. Cook, covered just until tender, about 10 minutes. You want it firm, not mooshy. Keep poking it with a fork if you’re unsure about the consistancy towards the end of the cooking time.
(If you’re using frozen cauliflower, cook according to package directions)
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce, and black pepper.
After the cauliflower is cooked, drain and put into a serving bowl. (or dump it back into your pan, less dishes!) Pour the dressing over the cauliflower, add the cheese; mix thoroughly.
Now, you can either pop it into the microwave to let the cheese melt, or turn your pan back onto a low temperature, then it’s time to serve.
Look! You don’t hate cauliflower anymore! yay!
