Mmmmm, love this idea!👍🏻
Such a pretty veg to cut into Ottolenghi-like steaks.
Interesting! I have not been very creative with cauliflower beyond slathering it with a cheddar cheese sauce…will remember this!
Any leftovers make a wondrous soup!
I’m going to try this Mado. Thanks for the reminder of how much I love cauliflower!
