Baked Cauliflower (with Coriander & Cheese)

I am still trying to have a good diet. Trying to cut down on butter, on sugar, on cream, on heavy sauce … you know what else.

That is how I ended up baking the cauliflower that nearly got drown into a cheese sauce. My rationale reigned this time. YES!

I used coriander not knowing how it would turn out as there is only a little left in the bag. I am happy that I did. Coriander actually paired darn well with baked cheese.


  • about a 3 stalks of fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 whole cauliflower, cut into bite size
  • 1 medium red onions, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 handfuls of grated cheddar
  • salt & black pepper to taste
  • 3 – 4 tbsp of olive oil


  1. First, blanch the cauliflower in a salted simmering water for about 10 minutes or so. Drain well, set aside.
  2. Alternatively, microwave the cauliflower with a bit of oil on high mode for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, bring the rest of the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Reserve some cheese for topping later on.
  4. When the cauliflower is cooked until partly soft, toss into the mixing bowl of seasoning.
  5. Coat them well and evenly, then transfer into a casserole dish that will fit the seasoned cauliflower to a depth of about 1 inch (2.5cm). Top if off with the leftover grated cheese from Step 2.
  6. Bake the dish for 30 minutes at 180°C until the cauliflowers are brown at the top.
