    The crumb topping is outstanding and so easy to make. I used ground almonds because that is all I had. Absolutely loved the lemon juice in the mixture. This recipe would be good on anything calling for a crumb topping, IMO!!

    This recipe is easy and delicious. I cook the cauliflower in the microwave covered with plastic with slit in top for approx. 5 minutes. I have made this recipe numerous time and everyone just loves it.
