I would have never thought to use lavender in cooking (I bake with it), but this recipe really made me curious as to what the taste would be like. So I tried it and I have to say: it was one of the best cauliflower recipes I have ever tried. The roasty flavour combined so well with the aromatic fragrant taste of the lavender. Mmmm, I couldnt get enough of this! Thankfully it is so healthy, that I could eat and eat and eat. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this special recipe with us, ~Rita~!

This is delicious! My lavender hedge is gorgeous right now and I love finding a recipe calling for fresh lavender. Now if only I can remember to dry some to use in recipes later... My DH was not a big fan of this recipe (tastes like potpourri) but all my guests loved it! I will make it again before my lavender goes by! Thanks! ZWT 3
