  • 2 cups ham, diced
  • 1 large head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Place the cauliflower florets in a microwave-safe bowl. Add a splash of water, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave on high for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain any excess water.
  2. While the cauliflower is in the microwave, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and cook until they are translucent and slightly caramelized, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the diced ham to the skillet with the onions and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the ham is heated through. Season with smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Add the microwaved cauliflower to the skillet and gently toss to combine all ingredients. If using, sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top and let it melt into the mixture.
  5. Remove from heat and transfer the mixture to a serving dish. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley for a burst of color and flavor.
