Thanks to my good friend Cathy for sharing this!

Oven Roasted Cauliflower Ingredients:

  • head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
  • shredded cheese (I used cheddar)about 2 cups


Wash cauliflower and steam entire head in microwave. I did mine about 8 minutes on high, and it was al dente. If you want it super tender maybe try 9-10 minutes.

Mix together mayonnaise and spicy mustard, and baste a nice thick coat over entire cauliflower head.

I basted mine a couple of times.


Put a sheet of foil on baking pan, and use your hands to pack shredded cheese into the cauliflower. (This is messy!!)

Turn oven to broil, and put cauliflower under the broiler until cheese is melted and beginning to brown.
