I found this in a magazine when I was at the hairdressers. Putting it here so I don't lose the piece of paper. Will try soon. This came from a British magazine.

We loved this - at $3.99 for a medium sized cauliflower (NZ so does totally seasonal veges) I was happy to find a recipe that made me feel it was worthwhile spending that much! I actually made this for lunch and served it with flatbreads, yoghurt, lettuce & tomatoes to make wraps. It was so yummy and was gobbled down. Made for Aus/Kiwi Recipe Swap June 2009.
