We really enjoyed these -- and ate them as kind of "vegetarian meatballs" for dinner. No one guesses there is cauliflower in them! I had guesses that were all over the map, lol. Everyone did agree that they had a great blend of savory flavors! I did find the texture slightly rubbery, but the flavors were so good it didn't matter much. Thanks, Kari!
