I absolutely love mushrooms. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Cauliflower, though? Eh, it’s not entirely my favorite. But when you mix the two of them with garlicky, buttery goodness, it’s the perfect marriage.

It’s also the perfect accompaniment to any main dish, especially for your vegetarian friends/family members/guests.

Sometimes I’ll make this with the cilantro lime chicken thighs (great pairing, BTW) but my plate will be 10% chicken, 90% GB mushrooms and cauliflower. Balance, folks, balance.

    This recipe was bomb! Mine turned out completely dry (and the cauliflower was taking forever to cook) so I added 1 c. of chicken stock. I put on a lid for 5 minutes and it came out perfect. Also, I can’t work with thyme. I’m sure there’s a trick here, but I haven’t found it. I probably added 1 tsp, but the dish still tasted awesome.

  2. I made this recipe and it was a huge hit with my family. Absolutely loved it.

    This is a fabulous recipe and I’m so sad that we finished it all at dinner! A 30/10, seriously!

  4. Holy smokes! This is so good! Super flavorful and great spices/herb combo. Salt takes it to the top. Really, really good. It was quick and easy. Just what I like for a first try in a new recipe. My house smells like a restaurant and I like it.

    Love this! Would this make for a good vegetarian main dish? Or should it be modified for a main dish vs. side dish? Thoughts?

    OMG this is amazing! I think you can get your kids to eat their vegetables. I sprinkled a little fresh Parmesan on top. It put it way over the top.

  8. Do you mean green onion, a scallion or a shallot.

  9. But I don’t see any garlic!

    Great as a side with steaks!  No starch needed. 
    Would not have thought to sauté together mushrooms with cauliflower, but it works.  Excellent!

  11. That looks Delicious, DAMN! Seriously though, I am going to make this. 😉

  12. This is so damn yum! Amazing combination of mushroom and cauliflower.. I tried it today and my family instantly fell in love with it.. Thank you so much for this amazing recipe!
