Simple, healthy and yummy! I love the combination of lemon, garlic, parmesan. It's a great way to cook cauliflower. Thank you!

What a great recipe to showcase cauliflower! Lemon, garlic, parsley, and Parmesan compliment it. Made as posted except I put all the parsley in with the water. The sauce is not thick but there to spoon onto plate.

This was really a yummy side with tonight's meatloaf. I had to use frozen cauliflower but it worked well, it just didn't take as long to cook. I added some extra lemon because it's one of my favorite things. The parsley was fresh out of the yard and even DH enjoyed it. :D
