      I get what i want, and i like what i see.
    • Hi, I just used the whole cauliflower as although I eat it, the man isnt too keen on it. So I suppose it was more than 600g but it was quite yummy and not too thick. i just remembered that I used all the leeks so it was probably 3 instead of two only to use it all up. I will try putting celery in it next time just for a taste adventure.:D
