MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2012

Followed the recipe precisely, easy to make. It tasted ok, just a bit bland. I will definitely make this again, but will add more S&P and ground mustard, and will probably add some garlic for sure!

MY REVIEW

I made only a half a batch because there are only 2 in household. I didn't any other changes and it was very good.

Excellent AND easy. I cubed some whole wheat toast for the croutons.

Excellent taste and everyone loved it. I made it in the microwave in a covered stone cooker due to conflicts with the oven and it turned out great.

Made this for dinner last night. I cut the recipe in half, added salt to the water when cooking the cauliflower and added a little extra salt and ground mustard to the sauce. It was delicious.
