  • I substitute potato for kumera (sweet potato) and also add a tbsp of wholegrain mustard to the cauliflower adds extra flavour - 3/31/11

  • This is a great dish I make often. Have also done it with leftover rice as the bottom crust. Now have done it with grated yams replacing the potatoes. Wonderful! - 6/14/10
