There was a time that I wouldn't EVER use the microwave for vegetables, and my husband? That's sacrelig, if you ask him. That was, until I made this for him early on in our marriage. I had been telling him about it for months and he kept saying NO!, but finally I just made it and he was hooked. He renamed it "Cow Brain" but I just can't get on board with that. Totally grosses me out.
Anyway, if you're trying to get your kids, or husband!, to try cauliflower, give this one a try. You, and they, won't be disappointed.
Cauliflower in the Microwave
Wash one head of cauliflower, and trim all leaves from the bottom. Place damp in a bowl, (or add a tablespoon or so of water.) Cover well with plastic wrap, and cook on high for 7 to 10 minutes, depending on the size of the head.
1/2 cup mayo (I use lite.)
1 tsp. prepared mustard
1 green onion, sliced. (I usually use 2.)
Smear well onto the (mostly) cooked cauliflower. Don't forget to wipe it down the sides, too.
Next, press 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese onto the mayo mix. Again, remember to press it into the sides too.
Return to the microwave for about 2 minutes to melt the cheese and heat the mayo mix.
I cut it like a pie.
Get ready to be a hero.
Bonus: Your kids will devour this. Veggies!
