This was tasty. I thought I had cilantro in the fridge. Turned ut it was italian parsely but I forged ahead anyway. I used a mixture of basil and parsely in this instead. Next time I think I'll cook the cauliflower a minute or so less. I wouldn't mistake this for white rice, but it is a nice side dish

Excellent! We don't use a microwave so we just boiled in water. It was good warm and it would be good chilled.
