I love cauliflower so had to give this recipe a try. A light side dish that is very simple to make. I used one small head of cauliflower that I rough chopped and added to the boiling water. After draining, I added it back to the pan snf let the remaining water dry out. Needed a bit more ranch dressing and I think more seasoning or herbs. Just a little bland even with adding the extra ranch dressing.
