Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • For a different look, the cauliflower can be sliced instead of left in florets. Begin slicing from the whole head of cauliflower, then separate the florets from the core.
  • The herb butter can be made ahead, covered and refrigerated. Remove from refrigerator to soften while cooking vegetables.
