Made this last night. Excellent! Next time I will buy pre-chopped cauliflower to save even more time and also I was thinking about "ricing" the cauliflower to allow it mix more with the other veggies. It did take longer to broil, and I added more feta cheese.

wonderful, agree not much of a gratin since it is not baked, but was very tasty. I served as a side to an asparagus stuffed portabella mushroom. I used a mixture of green, purple and white cauliflower from the farmer's market. Made it really colorful as well as flavorful. I am not sure how well it would work to make ahead of time - seems like it would not get hot enough.

This was excellent! I used fresh tomatoes last night instead of canned. It took a bit to brown it (10 minutes), but that was probably just my broiler. :)

My husband loves this dish so much! I do add about a half teaspoon of curry powder since that is his favorite seasoning. Courtney, you're right, the recipe is incomplete. I usually put it under the broiler for about 5 - 7 minutes.

I added the juice of one lemon to this and it was fantastic.

I've been making this recipe for years (long before I found it again here on the Vegetarian Times website). It's so savory and good. You don't even have to be a big cauliflower fan to like this. It's simplicity belies its deliciousness. The recipe is perfect as written, but you can, of course, be more liberal with the feta. And I have a shallow gas broiler so I would never leave it in there for 5 or 6 minutes, but a more forgiving electric broiler would allow for proper broiling. Enjoy!
