I hadn’t, so we went looking, and there they were, small yellow squash 😀 Another few weeks and they should be ready for harvest I think.

I’ll post a picture when I get one taken, I’m currently at work.

You need:

about 500 grams of culiflower. I had frozen, but I guess fresh would be better, just takes longer to cook then.
water, about 1 liter.

1-2 cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper.
1.5 deciliter of low fat cream (or real cream if you prefer)
A dash of cayenne pepper.
0.5-1 deciliter of chopped parsley. Read the rest of this entry »
