Well I really enjoyed this in the end. It was tasty! However I'd just like to warn other makers that I cooked this for 4 people and I used a whole onion and a whole cauliflower and it was still a small portion. We do not eat large portions normally so I feel I have to stress this. I also added 2 tsps of dried basil otherwise it would have been too bland. In the end though it was really nice! - 19 Aug 2015
