Green Box delivery usually has at least one surprise item. This week it's Romanesco. Looks like a broccoli from outer space, but is actually related to cauliflower. I admired it for a while; then what the heck, nuked it with mayo, mustard and cheese. Delicioso.

Frosted Cauliflower

  • 1 med. cauliflower (about 1 1/2 lb. trimmed)
  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 3/4 c. shredded cheese (I like Elemental, but even Velveeta will do.)
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise (scant)
  • 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Paprika or seasoned salt to sprinkle on

Cut off stem, leaving cauliflower whole. Put water and cauliflower in 1 1/2 quart casserole. Cover and microwave on high about 9 minutes, turning bowl 1/4 turn once. (Should be just tender). Meanwhile, mix other ingredients. Drain cauliflower then spread with topping. Cover and let stand 5 minutes until topping melts. Makes 6 servings.

What was more disturbing was the other alien in the box...
