Recipes Using Cauliflower

If you're a cauliflower lover, here's a tasty twist based on the idea of onion blossoms.


  • 1/4 cup panko crumbs
  • 1/3 cup fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Advertisement

  • 1 tsp. dried sage
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  • 2 1/2 lbs. cauliflower (about 1 medium head) leaves and stem removed
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and oil an 8 x 8 inch baking dish.

Combine the panko, Parmesan cheese, sage, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Bring 1/2 inch water to a boil in a large pot, add the cauliflower stem side down, cover and steam over medium heat until crisp tender, about 12 to 15 minutes.

Carefully remove cauliflower to baking dish (again stem side down). Evenly drizzle with olive oil, evenly sprinkle with panko mixture, and gently press well. Bake until panko is lightly browned, and the cauliflower is fork tender, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Cut cauliflower pie style into six slices, keeping it whole for presentation sake, and serve.
