I can't imagine how many calories there are in a cup of steamed cauliflower branches but I tell you what, on the end of my fast day yesterday, it was absolutely delicious! I couldn't imagine raving about the taste and texture of plain steamed cauli, but it tasted divine. How fasting changes my taste buds!

oooh julianna I like the sound of the lemon and cumin - I'm addicted to crispy grilled cauli - spray olive oil on fast days and slap lots of EVOO on non fast days - but I'm having a fascination with lemon at the moment so will try this. I HAD :wink: to buy this Lebanese wholemeal walnut & lemon slice today - delish, if a little sweet and large. Must find a recipe and make it less weet and more lemony
