National Vegetarian Week – Cauliflower “Polonaise”

For National Vegetarian Week I thought I would share this delicious and easy recipe based loosely on a recipe from the Riverford Autumn and Winter Veg book. “Polonaise” means in the Polish style which refers to the tasty toppings of eggs, croutons, capers and parsley. You could serve other vegetables such as broccoli, leeks and asparagus.
