The comment from my son was "This is okay, but there's nothing special about it." Husband agreed. They didn't dislike it, both ate their servings, but neither wanted it again. I liked the cauliflower and thought the spices smelled wonderful, but it was a bit too mild for us.
This was a good, easy recipe. We added cayenne pepper to it cause we like some spice. Thanks for posting.
