This recipe is so nice for these chilly nights! I kind of love potatoes, and this a lightened up version of this recipe. If you want to make this a quick recipe, grab a packet of dry ranch seasoning. I have a small stock of homemade ranch seasoning, so I used 2 tablespoons of that and it gave it a great little kick. You can easily make this gluten free by using all purpose gluten free flour.

      Oh my goodness, you’re right! Just updated the recipe. You just add in the frozen (or fresh) cauliflower into the pot with the potatoes and let them cook in there.
