Since I discovered the pan-steaming method to cook Broccoli, and it is the best & easiest way to cook Broccoli, I tried to cook Cauliflower in the same way. It works but it seems I need a little more water for Cauliflower. Today I added grated Cheese. As the result was so good, I must write down how I cooked this dish.


4 Servings


500g Cauliflower *about 1/2 of a large head, cut into small florets
1 tablespoon Oil *I used Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic *finely chopped
2 pinches Salt
3 to 4 tablespoons Water
1 cup (about 100g) coarsely grated Cheese *I used Cheese Mix for baking (mix of Cheddar, Mozzarella and Parmesan)
Black Pepper

  1. Drizzle Oil over a non-stick frying pan and arrange Cauliflower pieces. Sprinkle with Garlic, Water and Salt. Cover with a lid and cook over medium heat for a few minutes.
  2. When the Water in the pan is evaporated, remove the lid, toss or turn the Cauliflower pieces over.
  3. Scatter grated Cheese evenly, cover with the lid again, and cook until the Cheese is melted. Remove the lid and cook until nicely browned.
  4. Transfer to a serving plate, sprinkle with some freshly ground Black Pepper, and extra Salt if required.
