INGREDIENTS

1 medium head of cauliflower, trimmed of big stalks and broken into florets
2 tablespoons olive oil (divided use)
2 slices whole wheat bread, crusts removed, chopped into coarse crumbs
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh thyme
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh parsley
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


PREPARATION

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil. Set aside.

2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the cauliflower florets, then turn off the heat and let the cauliflower stand in the hot water for 1 minute. Drain well.

3. Place the drained cauliflower in a large bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Spread the coated cauliflower in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Place in hot oven and roast for 20-30 minutes, until lightly browned.

4. As the cauliflower roasts, heat the remaining oil in a small skillet. Add the bread crumbs and sauté over medium heat for 7-9 minutes or until the crumbs are crispy. Add the fresh herbs, salt, and pepper and mix well. Remove the skillet from the heat.

5. Place the cauliflower in a serving bowl and top with the herbed crumbs before serving.
