Lazy Woman's Way of Making Cauliflower and Cheese Casserole

Lately, we've had several contributions of new ways to cook cauliflower which seems to be a mainstay of our veggies! Last night, I had no fresh cauliflower, but did have some frozen. So, being the micro snob I am, I decided that would be the quick and easy method to try something new. I put a single portion in a micro safe bowl with a couple of tablespoons of water and nuked on high for 2 1/2 minutes. Then, I drained the water and added two tablespoons of ranch dip made with real sour cream and two tablespoons of grated sharp cheddar. I stirred that all together and nuked for about thrity seconds, just to melt the cheese. Then I covered the top with grated cheese and nuked for forty-five seconds. Done! Delicious!

If I were going to make this in a casserole for more than one, I would cover the bottom of the dish with cauliflower and add a little more water to nuke.  I would at least double the dip and cheese for a larger casserole and nuke that when stirred in. Then, I would put the grated cheese on top and stick it under the broiler until brown and bubbly for more visual appeal. How easy is that?? And delicious!

Note: This would also be good with some diced onions in it.
