Whole Baked Cheese Cauliflower

whole cauliflower
This is a deceptively easy dish to make but the ultimate crowd pleaser. The method includes cooking the cauliflower whole in the microwave first so you're left with a super soft inside and a creamy, crunchy outside after it's finished in the oven!
  • Head of cauliflower, washed and base leaves removed
  • 1 cup of grated cheese (I used tasty)
  • 1 serve of bechamel sauce
  1. Place whole cauliflower in a microwave safe dish with 1/4 cup of water.
  2. Microwave on high for 10-12 minutes. It should be easy enough to pierce with a fork when it’s done.
  3. Preheat grill.
  4. Pop into an oven safe dish, cover with bechamel sauce and grated cheese.
  5. Place under grill for 8 minutes or until cheese is melted and cauliflower is golden. Don’t go too far because this won’t take long!
