Roast cauliflower at a high temperature and you have a dish that is sweet, nutty and absolutely addictive. Use as a side dish, toss with pasta, add to a salad.
  • l large head of cauliflower
  • 3 generous tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground pepper,
  • a handful of fresh thyme sprigs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbs. panko crumbs
  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Cut cauliflower into florets
  3. Toss on a large rimmed baking sheet or pan with olive oil, and season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Use the largest pan you have so the cauliflower roasts - not steams.
  4. Sprinkle with half the fresh thyme sprigs
  5. Roast, tossing occasionally, until almost tender 35-45 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and panko crumbs
  7. Roast about 10 minutes longer until cauliflower is tender and cheese melts
