  1. This was a winner all round! Even my 4 year old loved it 😀 I didn’t add the cheese because we were dipping cheesy garlic bread into it and it was fantastic with out it. Would definitely make again.

  2. I needed to double the stock for this one. Probably because my cauliflower was as big as a Volkswagen Beetle, perhaps? (They were on special at Harris Farm). Tastes good though.

    Loved it! Made heaps so will be freezing the rest. Will definitely be making it again! I didn’t add the cheese tho cos I don’t like cheese and I used an onion instead of the leek as suggested but it was still yummy without it!

  4. I thoroughly enjoyed this and highly recommend it. I used 2 cauli’s, 1 onion instead of leek (personal choice) and added 2 potatoes, with 2.5 litres chicken stock. It was so yummy and very easy to cook.

  5. Not really a fan, but maybe it was something I did? Found the parmesan kind of just went gunky, tad to garlicky & didn’t really enjoy the texture 🙁

  6. Loved this, used onion instead of leek, and put 1 head of broccoli in as well, was so scrumptious, no parmisan, just cream as I was blitzing

  7. I make this outstanding recipe, tweaking to my likes (eg chillis), and for the first time tried the roasted cauli method. Outstanding!!!! Thanks for this recipe.
