Top Review by Manami

Hello English_Rose, this is wonderful and so tasty! Some of the resident's enjoyed it,so I wondered about making this recipe with cauliflower florets and voila - we made it! The only thing we substituted was the cauliflower for the potatoes. We, also added some parsely the last few minutes for a garnish. Thanks so much for posting, hugz, Manami :)
