Cauliflower doesn’t have a lot of it’s own distinctive flavor, which is why it lends itself so well to recipes that masquerade it as something else like rice or potatoes… but with this preparation puts the beauty of a fresh cauliflower head right up front and uses herbs and lemon juice to amp up the taste.
