A delicious cauliflower dish cooked with a walnut pesto.
How many times can I enthuse about the versatility of the humble cauliflower..many more times it seems! This is a dish that could be used at room temperature as a salad or warm as a side dish. I adore roasted cauliflower and the nuttiness of the walnut goes so well with it. Tasty, and nutty!
