Hi Sangeeta, Nice idea, can you please explain what is pimento. Is it a type of pepper. You can also have cauliflower with low fat white sauce indian style, i add powdered jeera, ground pepper, corriander leaves finely chopped with a hint of chilli powder, salt to taste. I steam the cauliflower and drizzle sauce on top with a sprinkle of gratd cheese and baked till cheese is golden. Also can add other veges like broccoli. Really nice. :)
