    Simple and easy - that's what I like. I added wholegrain mustard instead of Dijon, because I like the "nutty" taste. Has quite a diatinct taste of its own, and is better served with food that is not so overpowering, so that each dish compliments one anoher, rather than competing against eachother.

    Very easy to prepare and liked the taste...! Please share more of such quickies that score great on the taste as well..! I also sprinkled chopped leaves of fresh coriander before serving this dish !

    Made this today as side to tomato sauced pasta. Nice light flavor that featured the taste of the broccoli and cauliflower. We had to steam for 8-9 minutes, and still had a sturdy texture to the florets.

    This was good but I was hoping for a little more flavour - I found that it just didn't coat very well even with letting the water evaporate. I served with cajun salmon and potatoes and it was a nice side dish. Thanks for posting.

    A very tasty side dish. We had it last night with our steak dinner. Thanks for posting.
