    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe is from Williams Sonoma Essentials of Healthy Cooking. Soaking the cauliflower in water before baking is important. The moisture creates hot steam that helps the cauliflower to cook to a tender and succulent finish. Serve with lemon wedges. The citrus enhances the flavors in this delightful dish.

      Very nice recipe. I cut it in half - no problem. Next time, and there will be a next time, instead of soaking the cauliflower I will put 2 or 3 tbsp of water in the dish with the cauliflower and cover the dish for the first 15 minutes. I did not use any oil just a no oil spray. Thanks Paula for posting

      I doubled the recipe to feed 7 people & there were fights for the last its. I minced the zest of both the lemon & orange w/the parsley & scallions & also squeezed the juice from both fruits over the cauliflower (hate throwing parts away). RAVE reviews from everybody. A wonderful way to serve cauliflower. Thanks, Paula!

      A tasty variation for a rather bland & boring vegetable! Aside from scaling the quantities in half, I followed the recipe verbatim. Thanx Paula!
