    Dr. Jenny's Note:

    I absolutely love this dish. Even my father, who does not like garlic or cauliflower that much, was raving about this dish. It is essential to use fresh bread crumbs. I usually buy a baguette or country-style bread from the grocery store, and after cutting off the crust and tearing it into slices, put it in the food processor until it forms crumbs the size I want. This recipe is from the Williams Sonoma Vegetable Cookbook.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring a large saucepan 3/4 full of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt, the sugar, and the cauliflower and boil until tender, about 5 minutes. Do not overcook.
    2. 2
      Drain, rinse under running cold water, and leave to drain.
    3. 3
      In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 4-5 Tb of the oil. When the oil is hot, add the crumbs and toss them constantly until they are evenly toasted, browned, and crisp, about 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the garlic, turn the crumbs once or twice, and remove them from the pan. Do not allow the garlic to brown; it should be cooked only enough to flavor the crumbs.
    5. 5
      Heat the remaining 2-3 Tb oil in the same pan over medium heat. Add the cauliflower and mash and break it up a bit as it lightly browns in the oil and become slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Do not allow the cauliflower to become crisp and dark.
    6. 6
      Add the crispy garlic crumbs to the pan and toss them with the cauliflower over medium-low heat, mashing some of the cauliflower and allowing some of it to keep its shape, about 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve hot.

      Excellent recipe and delicious with garlic.
      I let the cauliflower not to turn too soft and I cut them in smaller pieces prior bringing them in the pan as I love the structure of these vegetables. I did not mash them. For all other points I preceded as described and we all loved it very much!
      Thanks a lot for your suggerstion.

      I really like cauliflower and often bake it with bread crumbs, so this recipe sounded interesting and less time consuming. I did make my own bread crumbs. We enjoyed the flavor and we liked the garlic flavor and the addition of the bread crumbs. We felt we needed more cauliflower and a little less bread crumbs, however maybe my cauliflower was a little small. Made for ZWT 2011.
