Another find from a cookbook given to me many years ago, by my wonderful Mother. The recipe states -- The tomato sauce for this popular Greek dish can be deliciously thickened with fresh or soured cream.

This is a great way to prepare cauliflower! Nice flavor and nothing overpowering, it would make a great side dish for pretty much anything. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers
