My mother-in-law makes this for Thanksgiving every year. Our family can't get enough of it. You can use frozen cauliflower instead of fresh, but it is not quite as good.

I must admit, when I read the recipe I had doubts. I like mushrooms, but somehow the combination didn't appeal all that much. On the other hand I had the ingredients on hand and needed a side dish. Delicous! We loved it and will use again! Read More

This is nice, but the bouillion makes it way too salty. I cooked my cauliflower in the microwave on high for 6 minutes, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. If I make it again, I would substitute low sodium canned broth, probably vegetable broth, and use chopped sweet onion in place of the green onions (regular onions leave a bad taste in my mouth). I probably will make this again, because I've been wanting a good way to fix cauliflower. Read More

This has the beginnings of a really good dish. I still have to play with it. I lowered butter to about 1.5 tbsp used 1 leek instead of green onions and crimini mushrooms. I was a little weirded out by chicken boullion so I used just a little skipped the almonds and the corn starch and threw the cooked cauliflower into the pot with the browned mushrooms and leeks. Served on the side of turkey blue cheese burgers (from this site) for a great low carb meal. Read More

I used olive oil and chicken stock. But I thought that this recipe was wonderful. I added some garlic salt and peprika and I also sprinkled a little bit of parm cheese on top. My friends and children loved it! I will make this again! Read More

The dish is great if you have cauliflower and mushrooms in your refrigerator and you don't know what to do with them. I made this dish according to recipie and it turned out fine but it lacked in taste somehow so we didn't care too much about it. It went good with meat dish we had along. I made it second time hoping it would turn out better but it was same. I also added a small amount of cumin to add some taste to it the second time. But apparently this dish needs something else or some more spices for the right combination. Read More

This was sooo good! I'm always looking for good ways to make cauliflower and this was wonderful. Even my sons loved it and they would normally never touch cauliflower. I'll definitely be making this on a regular basis. Read More

Delicious as is! It is now my BASIC cauliflower recipe. I have tried others' ideas and just recently cooked some chopped bacon then proceeded as usual with the mushrooms etc. WOW! Also I've added leftover veg like brussel sprouts peas. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

I didn't have mushrooms so left them out. I used half the bouillon and much less butter. It turned out just great. I'll try it with the mushrooms next time. Read More
