I can’t say I know much about cauliflower. In fact, I don’t remember eating it at all growing up.
But just because I wasn’t exposed to this vegetable early in life doesn’t mean it is a bad one. I think many people aren’t sure what to do with it honestly.
This is a recipe to help encourage those out there who are confused but want to learn. It’s more simple than you think and definitely more delicious than you ever knew.
