Servings 14 Pieces


  • 3 cups Water
  • 1/4 Head Cauliflower should yield about 14 pieces of bite-size cauliflower
  • 1/2 tbsp Salted Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 14 Slices Jalapeno
  • 14 Cubes Sharp Cheese we use English Cheddar with Caramelized Onions
  • 3-4 Slices Roasted Turkey
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Sesame Seed optional garnish


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Add water into stove top pot and bring to boil.
  • While waiting for the water to boil, trim cauliflower into bite size pieces.
  • Add cauliflower into boiling water and cook for approximately 5 minutes or until tender. Once tender, take cauliflower out and place on serving plate.
  • In the meantime, thinly slice jalapeno, remove any seeds and set aside. You will need 14 slices of jalapeno (one per bite).
  • Cut turkey into 4 equal parts per slice and set aside. You will need 14 strips of the turkey (one per bite).
  • Cut any sharp cheese (we used English Cheddar with Caramelized Onioninto 14 cubes that measures around 1/2 X 1/2 inch. Set aside.
  • Melt butter inside a microwave safe bowl, about 20-30 seconds. Add Soy Sauce to melted butter, mix and set aside.
  • Add cheese on top of plated cauliflower. If your cauliflower is still hot, the cheese should start to melt. If your cauliflower is not hot, place cheese on top and melt in microwave for about 20 seconds (time will vary depending on microwave).
  • With cheese melted, add turkey followed by jalapeno on top. The melted cheese should serve as a 'food glue', so it shouldn't be too hard to get the turkey to stay in place. Sprinkle salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Top with Sesame Seeds and lightly drizzle soy sauce butter sauce (butter shouldn't solidify quickly since it is mixed with soy sauce, but it does just microwave for a couple of seconds).
