Whoever says salad isn’t a proper meal will wave a white flag of surrender after tasting this simple, hearty dish. Tender kale and cauliflower get a note of sweetness from golden raisins and a savory sprinkle of parmesan. A squeeze of lemon puts the finishing touch on a quick meal that’s packed with fiber and antioxidants.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

Microwave oven by power - 700w



The Medium Deep Dish


  • 1 ½ cups (45g) kale, stripped from stem and thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ cups (150g) riced cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed chili flakes
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan, grated
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Add all the ingredients except for parmesan and lemon juice into the Anyday dish. It will be a tight fit but will cook down significantly! Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, or until the kale and cauliflower are tender.
  3. Stir thoroughly. Mix in the parmesan cheese and lemon juice. Serve while warm.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Try it with some toasted almonds for extra crunch.
  • Substitute chili flakes for chili crunch.
  • Add some chopped herbs such as parsley, chives, basil, or dill for extra freshness.

Recipe notes

  • Omit the parmesan cheese for a vegan-friendly dish.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
