How to Make Baked cauliflower

  • Boil whole cauliflower in salted water.
  • When soft, drain the water and leave it on a sieve to dry.
  • When completely dry, stuff the cauliflower with the green paste. Make sure that the paste is thick enough so that it does not leave water while stuffing.
  • Keep the cauliflower warm in a preheated oven (about 100 degree C) for as long as you want.
  • Just before serving, pour over the red sauce, boiled peas and grated cheese.
  • Return to a slightly hotter oven till the cheese melts and serve hot.
