Crunchy Mama Tip:

 Clean up your dishes using a non-toxic dish soap bar. This bar is better for the environment, smells great, and lathers well on dishes. Also try making this cauliflower as a main meal and paring it with The Dancing Elephant's butternut karma kitchari pre-mix.  This dinner mix can be eaten on the side, or you can mix in the cauliflower with it to create a yummy dinner bowl.
