You can’t skip over that title can you?!
I’m a cheese hound and I just happen to love veggies too. Here’s one of my favorite ways to enjoy cauliflower. I have to credit my neighbor, Camille, for introducing me to this tasty combo! If you’re thinking about leaving off the cheese because you’re trying to cut fat or you’re lactose intolerant, think again. The small amount of fat per serving adds flavor and satiety of your meal (along with the bonus protein). And, cheddar cheese is very low in lactose.
-One head cauliflower, whole, cleaned and trimmed
-2 tbsp water
-1/4 c Greek yogurt, mayonnaise or sour cream (your choice)
-1-2 tsp mustard (any you like plain or fancy)
-Salt & Pepper to taste
-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Place the cauliflower in a microwave-safe glass dish with cover. Add water and cook on high for about 10 minutes or until cauliflower is soft. While the cauliflower is cooking, mix the yogurt (or mayo/sour cream) with the mustard, salt and pepper. When cauliflower is cooked and soft, carefully remove from microwave, drain water in dish, spread yogurt, mustard mixture over the cauliflower and then sprinkle with cheese. Cook 2 more minutes. Remove from microwave and let set for about 5 minutes. Cut slices like a pie.
Don’t you leave any cheese in the bottom of that bowl!
