Frosted Cauliflower Recipe

Frosted Cauliflower Recipe

I found this recipe in a small Better Homes and Garden cookbook I bought just before I was married in 1950. I adjusted the recipe a little by cutting the cauliflower into chunks. Then I can cook as much as I want. I like to serve this vegetable with pork as well as beef.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 2 cups fresh cauliflowerets
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Chopped fresh parsley, optional


  • 1. Place cauliflower and water in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring once.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard and salt. Drain cauliflower and place in a serving bowl. Top with mayonnaise mixture. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
