Seriously easy veggies. Kat adored this and wanted the recipe. That is high praise from her. The guys ate it without comment but the girls all enjoyed it. I think that DH would have preferred onions (which Kat hates) so I will make this again for just the two of us with onions and maybe some pimentos for color. Thanks!

Quick, easy and tasty. Mom wasn't thrilled with the sour cream but Dad would have eaten the whole bowl. I think I will add some milk to thin the sour cream and make it easier to cover the cauliflower.
