    We enjoy roasted veggies and these were very nice. I didn’t have any lavender but did have thyme flowers so used them instead. I assembled earlier in afternoon and it worked out fine. Served with recipe#428515, recipe#202181, and recipe#429987. Thanks for posting ~Rita~. Made for Unrulies Under the Influence during ZWT6 tour of Great Britain.

    I would have never thought to use lavender in cooking (I bake with it), but this recipe really made me curious as to what the taste would be like. So I tried it and I have to say: it was one of the best cauliflower recipes I have ever tried. The roasty flavour combined so well with the aromatic fragrant taste of the lavender. Mmmm, I couldnt get enough of this! Thankfully it is so healthy, that I could eat and eat and eat. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this special recipe with us, ~Rita~!

    This is delicious! My lavender hedge is gorgeous right now and I love finding a recipe calling for fresh lavender. Now if only I can remember to dry some to use in recipes later... My DH was not a big fan of this recipe (tastes like potpourri) but all my guests loved it! I will make it again before my lavender goes by! Thanks! ZWT 3

    This was really good although I did leave out the lavender flour as I did not have any. Mine took less time than stated to roast. Thanks Rita!...Kitten:)

    My husband liked it, but I did not care for it. I would recommend leaving out the lemon. The lemon flavor didn't seem to fit. Also, the roasting left the garlic somewhat burned/crispy and burned garlic is bitter. I probably just did something incorrectly.
