Steamed Cauliflower

cajuncookingtv's picture
Cauliflower is a wonderful vegetable that is often overlooked as a great tasting cooked vegetable. Cauliflower is most often used in Vegetable Trays with a dip. Although many people love to eat raw cauliflower and broccoli, having it steamed is also very tasty; especially with some finely shredded cheddar cheese or fresh parmesan cheese.
  Head of cauliflower 1 (It Should Be Firm And Free Of Brown Spots On The Top)
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sea salt 1 Dash
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Shredded cheddar cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Cut off the green leafy part attached at the bottom of the Cauliflower. Cut off as much of the stem as you can. You may have to insert a paring knife at an angle to get down to the stem. Rinse well to remove any grit.

Heat 1 cup water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil.

Place Cauliflower in water. Sprinkle some Sea Salt.

Cover and lower the heat to medium-to-low #3. Cook for 8-12 minutes or until soft enough to run a knife through the stem. Ours took about 12-15 minutes.
Cut into serving wedges and top with cheese. A dash of Tony’s Creole Seasoning adds a great kick also. Our daughter, Alexandra likes Tony’s on everything.

Happy eating and don’t forget to dance while you cook. We have so much fun!

This cheesy cauliflower is a new way to cook cauliflower for me.. I cook my cauliflower with savory indian spices like garam masala and cumin.. it goes excellently with hot cooked rice!
