This is a great way to prepare cauliflower! I sliced the garlic and left it in after cooking and it worked fine. I also added some salt and pepper before serving. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

This was quite different from the norm. Was still good. I had to add salt and black pepper to bring out the flavors. I'm sure its a good dieters side. I made for "Cooks With Dirty Faces ZWT5"
