      My water and lemon came to 3/4 of a cup, in which I added 1/4 cup paste to blend in. I did saute the onions and cauliflower together, never removing the cauliflower, added the water paste mixture and cooked till tender in a covered pot. 1 onion was perfect, I did half then slice into half moons. Using 2 teaspoons dried parsley. I did skip the salt no need with the olives. Did add garlic! Simmered with a lid on for 30 minutes till perfect crunch and tenderness. Thanks for the healthy yummy goodness.

      this was tastey but not sure if I liked the addition of the tomato paste, also if I were to make again I would use chicken broth in place of water, I used kalamata olives which worked fine and also added in 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic to the onion, thanks for posting Syd!

      This was really tasty. The water boiled off really quickly (maybe I had the temperature too high) so the cauliflower was dry before I added the tomato paste. I didn't use any oil though, due to personal preference. I just added the tomato straight to the cauliflower and it turned out fine. Thanks!
