Don't put this in blender it turns into paste better to chop. I will try this again!

Not worth the time

Freaky how much this tastes like couscous!. My cooking time was a lot less, so watch this as you are browning.. takes a while to start but once it starts, goes fast.

Love this recipe. I substitute half the butter for olive oil and it is still very good.

This made a great lunch. I can't say it tasted like couscous but it had a delicious, nutty flavor. The brininess of the kalamata olives went really well with it.

This is a great side dish next to tofu! the flavors really come through with the amount of time suggested so be patient it will pay off

We love it! I have made this cauliflower recipe many times in a row, and I am not tired of it yet! The only thing I do differently from the original recipe is to use olive oil instead of butter. I add more olive oil as necessary throughout the cooking time. I probably add more than 9 Kalamata olives, too!

This was delicious! I ended up cooking it for the entire suggested time. Followed the recipe exact except that I left out the olives. Definitely worth the extra time.
