    Have you tried roasting cauliflower Andrew? It’s my favourite way to serve it these days, like brussel sprouts takes on a whole different flavour. The chili and capers sound lovely additions either way.

    This sounds really good! I would quickly pan roast the cauliflowers for only a tiny bit after steaming them. but that is personal choice. lovely colors!
