“This traditional British dish has cauliflower that is steamed till soft but I brought it an other level and roasted it first. Using Roasted Cauliflower & 16 Roasted Cloves of Garlic PLEASE PLEASE don't eat the roasted cauliflower before making the final dish. You may want to double the roasting part so you and anyone the inhales the aroma from the kitchen can munch on it, till the final product is done. Don't stop at rosemary! if you enjoy herbs as I do, do add all 4 parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme as Simon & Garfunkel sang....”
