      I rarely use salt in my cooking and don’t feel it needs it but feel free to add a pinch when you’re cooking up the cauliflower if it’s something you like.

    In the description i dont read anything about a red bell pepper?.
    It is a bit confusing for me.

      Hello Toine, I am not sure why the bell pepper was in that ingredients picture…it sneaked in! 🙂 I have removed that picture as there isn’t any bell pepper in it! Hope you enjoy it.
