Cauliflower Favorite Side Dish

This cauliflower side dish trick is from my stepmother. Put a whole head of cauliflower covered with plastic wrap in the microwave for about six minutes, until al dente tender. Remove the wrap, lightly spread mayonnaise over the top and then layer with cheese. I used American. Cheddar is good, too. Microwave for another minute, slice into wedges and serve.

A heads up: microwaving with plastic wrap will leach TONS of toxins into your food and sort of defeats the point in buying organic. Try roasting or steaming instead.

That claim has become famous and I used to believe it, too, until I read in-depth research about it as part of my science reporting gig. Those interested in the topic can find out more by looking up this claim on any "urban legends" Internet page.
