Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe was great! Who knew putting cauliflower and parsnips together would be so good! I didn't add any milk to it because my boyfriend isn't a big dairy person, and I added some parsley at the end for extra flavor. Have made it twice now and am definitely planning on making it again.
