So tasty! I made this as an appetizer when some family was visiting. Very simple to do and everyone raved about it. I served it with celery and ranch dip made with the ranch seasoning packet and Greek yogurt dressing (only 20 cal for 2 tbsp) which was perfect. Will def be making again. Read More

The flavor was good. Next time I will roast the cauliflower longer and add some cornstarch or something to thicken the sauce and make it cling a little better. It was too thin. Read More

Pros: Fast and a yummy way to get veggies! Cons: Not enough! Read More
