    The flavor here is great. Totally a make again recipe. One technical problem is there is no amount for the tomato paste. I guessed tablespoon which I think was right. Brown rice is a challenge for me. I used a oven technique because I am more familiar with it but needed to use less liquid. I am also not certain about why soaking the rice is needed. I did do about 4 hours of soaking and it softened the rice but I'm just not sure what the point is. I also don't like cauliflower but in this dish it was really good. The only problem I had was the cooking time when uncovered seemed too short and left the cauliflower uncooked. When I covered and added time there was not enough liquid for my liking leftover. But I think the things wrong with this recipe have more to do with me and figuring out how to cook this right than the recipe. The flavor was great and it made me eat cauliflower and like it.
