  1. Served this when my sister visited, didn't know her husband hated cauliflower! He had 3 helpings before he asked what it was. For the life of me I don't know what he thought it was as he was eating it, cause it looked like cauliflower! He told my sister he still hated cauliflower, but if she wanted to make this he'd eat it:)
  2. Having been abandoned last night by my entire family (can I help it if they all have other plan?) I decided to comfort myself and indulge in a little (or a lot) of garlicky cauliflower. I used my own mix of spices, including some red pepper flakes and a little curry powder. A must for lovers of cruciferous foods! Thanks Bergy, another keeper!
  3. Bark!! Bark!! Bark!! This is one lovely recipe for anyone that loves garlic!!! Didn't change a thing, except to cut it back for two. We will be barking again soon, thanks for a keeper Bergy!!
  4. We both enjoyed the cauliflower. We usually prepare it by just steaming it or eating it raw. Thanks for a great recipe.
  5. Amazing wonderful recipe! I used my pressure cooker to steam the cauliflower for just one minute. Then I put all the oil in to cook the garlic, and stirred in the crumbs and herbs, then stirred the steamed cauliflower into it in the skillet. Don't expect the cauliflower to be coated in oil and crumbs. Little bits stick to the cauliflower and give it a lot of flavor, but you also have lots of separate bits of crumbs that don't stick. This is a good thing! We ended up standing over the bowl of cauliflower and eating it with our fingers, dipping it into the crumbs. Will definitely make this again and again.


  1. The garlic and herbs make the cauliflower great! Instead of bread crumbs, I used 2 tbsp wheat bran + 1 tbsp oat bran. I also added 1/16 tsp red pepper to "kick it up a notch". Whatever you do, don't cut back on the garlic! Rave reviews from my husband!


On January 10 2010 I will celebrate 9 years of Life with Zaar. I can't imagine being without it! It has become part of my daily routine. I feel very privileged to be one of the hosts on the Photo Forum. Taking photos of my culinary efforts is a full time hobby and I love it. My friends all know what to expect when they come to dinner "Are you finished taking pictures?" or "Did you get a photo of so & so?" I never let them wait too long and the food is NEVER cold! I now have over 6000 photos on Zaar - some fairly good and some definitely not so good. I am happy to say that practice does help. My roots are in Vancouver BC Canada - a very beautiful city that holds many wonderful memories for me. In 1990, I decided that for my retirement years I may want to settle in a smaller community and found a slice of heaven in the North Okanagan B.C. I love living here but every once in a while I miss the bright city lights, the Broadway shows and some of the small wonderful ethnic restaurants that Vancouver abounds in. That is easily resolved. I just take a trip to the coast, visit with friends for a weekend see a show and feast on Dim Sum or other specialty foods. I am getting a bit long in the tooth but was a very adventurous person. I have river rafted Hell's Gate on the Fraser river, been up in a glider over Hawaii (no not a Hang Glider!), gone hot air ballooning in the Napa Valley & the Fraser Valley, driven dune buggies on the dunes in Oregon, Para sailing in Mexico and tried many other adventurous, challenging, fun things. I have yet to try bungee jumping or sky diving. I may do them yet. I love to travel and experience other cultures. Mexco has been a favorite haunt. I have visited that lovely country many many times. Australia is another favorite as is England! In the past 16 months I have taken off 61 pounds and feel wonderful. I am off all medications and all systems are GO! In years I may be 79 but in spirit I am still in my forties. We are only as old as we allow ourselves to feel. Always think positive. Do something a bit challenging every day & always do something silly every day. Be a kid again! Laugh every day - it is internal jogging.
