Grilled or broiled Cauliflower with Parmesan Cheese Sauce is a scrumptious, easy and impressive side dish!
3 tablespoons sour cream
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 heaping teaspoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Fresh lemon juice, to taste
1 head cauliflower
2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Chopped Italian parsley, for garnish
Broiled variation: Preheat broiler with rack 5 to 6 inches from heating element. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray (for easy clean up, line pan with aluminum foil). Place cauliflower slices on sheet in a single layer and brush top with olive oil. Broil for 10 minutes or until starting to brown. Turn over, brush with oil and broil an additional 5 minutes. Spread Parmesan sauce over the top and continue broiling 5 minutes or until sauce is bubbly and starting to brown. Season to taste with salt and fresh ground pepper and serve immediately.
Tip on slicing cauliflower: Remove the outer leaves from the cauliflower and cut the stem so that it is flat and flush with the base of the crown. Place the cauliflower, the flat (stem) side down, on a work surface. Cut down through the head, cutting 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick slices. Don’t worry if some of the slices break apart into two or three pieces; just grill the larger partial ones along with the full slices, saving the smaller bits for another use (like our Curried Cauliflower Soup).
