  • Just made this for dinner. I had finger eggplants...

    Just made this for dinner. I had finger eggplants from the garden to use, and chicken in the freezer, so this was a perfect match. The blend of the spices was really lovely. I don't eat much cauliflower so I used something different.

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was very well received. Loved the caraway seeds as an interesting addition

    Nice, easy, healthy dish. Next time I'll add more oil or use chicken pieces to improve the texture and coriander to add flavour. Thanks for posting.

    I made this last night and it was a lovely, healthy and very tasty dish. Next time I will only put a teaspoon of the Carraway Seeds into the Cauliflower rice as they were slightly overpowering.
