Yes I often do so Bec 🙂
I cooked this for Easter lunch, without bacon as I had none as added broccoli. OMG! Best bake I’ve ever done. So yummy and massive win with the family

Could you please tell me what cooking cream is. What would be the equivalent in the uk? Thanks
April 16, 2022
Hi could you use fresh chives? Thank you

No reason you couldn’t double it for a main 🙂 It would just take a little longer is all – or if you did it in a 6L instead of the 3.5L the times would probably still be similar as it would be emptier so cook hotter 🙂

Could you double all the ingredients and make this as a main meal not a side dish
And if so, would it need to cook for longer?

I love making this, it’s so easy and the whole family loves it. Sometimes I do half broccoli and half cauliflower and it’s just as delicious.

I made this one for the first time and it will not be my last, what a great way to have Cauliflower..
We have a camping trip planned and this will be on the menu when we are at Takaraka camping ground on our powered site (taking the 2 pot SC with us)
If you like Cauliflower, you will definitely enjoy this recipe…!

It’s a cream that doesn’t split during cooking, it resists heat. Do you have one like that? I believe the UK folk say it’s like crème fraiche but I’m not certain. If using regular cream I suggest adding 1-2 tsp of cornflour to it before adding as this helps resist splitting also 🙂

What is cooking cream? I’m in the USA. Any substitute?

Absolutely delicious! I don’t think I’ll cook cauliflower any other way now!

This is amazing. Even my fussy eaters love it.
September 15, 2020
I add zucchini and mushroom sliced to this
August 15, 2020
Should still be similar time 🙂

If we used a larger slow cooker, do we double the ingredients and cook for how much longer?
July 5, 2020
A really delicious side dish. I made with cauliflower and broccoli. Will be a regular side dish in my house 😋

Tea Towel Trick
May 23, 2020
What is the tea towel trick? Thanks
May 11, 2020
Made this for myself and my husband and it was an absolutely hit. Absolutely delicious and full of flavour. Will definitely be making it again and again

what is teatowel trick. is that where the teatowel is placed under the lid of the slow cooker???
May 7, 2020
Hi Sharon, sorry I only just noticed this question now after we discussed it on the group this morning. Since you did it 3hrs and it wasn’t quite done I’d suggest others add that hour then check it each 15mins after that x
May 5, 2020
Hi Paulene, if I’m doubling the recipe in my large slow cooker would I need to cook more than 2 hours ?

Can someone please tell me what the tea towel trick is?
So good, the only change we made was real garlic not garlic powder. We used 3 cloves.
May 1, 2020
Yes you can 🙂 Just be sure it’s hot through and tender
April 30, 2020
Could you use frozen cauliflower or broccoli for this recipe?
If you’re adding other veg such as potato, perhaps par boil the potato first to get it started.
April 29, 2020
This is the only way I will ever cook cauliflower again.
Absolutely delicious 😃
April 15, 2020
You could add broccoli with no changes needed. Potato wouldn’t be soo good as it would need longer cooking time which would overdo the soft cauli/brocc
April 14, 2020
Can you add potatoes and broccoli with this? And how would you adjust the recipe to suit the potatoes?
April 12, 2020
Omg. This was so good. I added a little extra garlic powder ( i love garlic). Everyone loved it, even the veggie hating grandchild. I will definitely be making this again 💖
