Every time I make this simple Asian-style side dish starring cauliflower I get request for the recipe. No one can believe how easy it is to make.—Carol Krueger, Pewaukee, Wisconsin


  • 1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets
  • 3 tablespoons cold water, divided
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Dash pepper


  1. Place cauliflower in a microwave-safe dish. Add 1 tablespoon cold water. Cover and microwave on high for 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 minutes or until tender; drain and set aside.
  2. In a 1-qt. microwave-safe bowl, combine the celery, onion, parsley and butter. Cover and microwave on high for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  3. In a small bowl, combine hot water and bouillon until dissolved. Combine the cornstarch and remaining cold water until smooth. Add soy sauce, pepper and bouillon; mix well. Stir into celery mixture. Microwave, uncovered, at 70% power for 2-3 minutes or until sauce comes to a boil, stirring after each minute. Pour over cauliflower.
