herbed cauliflower with bread crumbs

As I was discussing cooking methods with a chef at camp, I proclaimed my love for roasted vegetables. I’m a simple girl when it comes to vegetables and less is often more in my book – a little olive oil, a touch of salt and roasted to perfection is my ideal vegetable side dish. He told me of a cauliflower dish with herbs and panko and I needed no more convincing.

In my true meal planning fashion, I added the cauliflower to the next weeks menu immediately – it is food like this that I have no patience for waiting to try.

Another simple yet delicious vegetable – something I never need convincing on.

Herbed Cauliflower with Bread Crumbs - 4-6 servings

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 3 Tbsp minced herbs (I used basil, thyme and sage)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat panko bread crumbs

Pre-heat oven to 375°.

Break up cauliflower into florets. Coat florets with olive oil and coat with herbs and panko.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes.

    I’m so making that tonight. I was planning on making cauliflower tonight anyway, so I don’t have to worry about having the patience to try this one. :-)

    Yum!! I confess that I sometimes forget about cauliflower in the summer (I attribute this to the fact that there were two cauliflower dishes my parents made when I was a kid: cauliflower soup and creamed cauliflower. I don’t think these ever made an appearance outside the months of November-February.) but I might have to run out to the ol’ grocery store and pick some up to make tonight. :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    I’m the same way with veggies – steam or sautee’ em in olive oil, throw on a dash of sea salt or balsamic vinaigrette, and I’m a happy girl! This looks fabeesh, I bet the Panko gives it a nice crispy touch.
