    Willard Brooks's Note:

    A delicate starter with a velvety texture. Market Tip: Freshly picked cauliflower is sweeter than the supermarket variety (and, when cooked, doesn't release the sulfurous smell that older cauliflower does).

      Simple and easy first course and a way to get more vegetables into the family. For a couple, just cut it in half and you will have a little left over. If making for 2, just use the blender and you can do it in one batch to the smoothness you want. I would recommend this recipe and will make it again. Jim in So. Calif.
