Daily Inspiration

We absolutely love cauliflower and this feta cheese sauce was really delicious. Simple to make and a really nice flavor that doesn't overpower the veggie.

I added 2 teaspoons of Greek with feta seasoning as well as about a tablespoon of fresh oregano, but will add more seasoning next time as this was still very, very bland. Rated high for technique since the texture was perfect and the cheese sauce was easy to make, but it was definitely lacking in flavour.
