    Thank you Alex for the recipe! It’s nice and silky. It was a perfect treat for a rainy day. My oldest son who is a picky eater and doesn’t like cauliflower at all, ate half a bowl.
    I did skip a few steps because I wasn’t paying attention: didn’t cut small flowerettes and didn’t put a lid on. I also started counting from the moment it started to boil 10 min and waited until my cauliflower was cooked through. I also added cayenne pepper because coconut milk made me think of Thai cuisine(spicy). Next time I will try a different approach.

    Thank you again,
    Cosmina.

      Very proud of you, Cosmina! You are a brave chef, especially that you need to fulfill the expectations of your family. Well done! Regarding the boiling times, the key idea is not to overcook the plants as this will loose the vitamins.
