Was easy and delish. Used Crunchy peanut Butter instead of cashew butter. Could easily make it vegan by using soya cream instead. Will def be making this again. Yummy!! A small cauli served 2. But actually was enough sauce for 4.

Very tasty vegetarian dinner. Made it tonight and loved it! If you want it to serve 4 people, you need a big cauliflower, or two small ones. There was enough sauce for 4 people but not enough cauliflower.
