  1. Clean cauliflower, and trim off leaves and any brown spots. Place the whole head of cauliflower into a steamer basket, place the basket in a large pot, and add one inch of water. Cover, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for about 20 minutes or until tender.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a medium bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, melted margarine. Season with garlic powder, salt, red pepper flakes, and oregano, and mix well. Place the head of cauliflower into a baking dish, and coat with the breadcrumb mixture.
  3. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

The secret to having cauliflower with flavor is steaming/simmering it in chicken broth. Then put it in the oven with the breadcrumb mixture. Yummmmmmmy!

This is the most delicious recipe I've ever tried. I took the advice of one of the reviewers, and cut the head into large pieces. I "steamed" it in the microwave. It was hard to get the mixture ...

Loved this! I cut up & micro steamed the cauliflower (in a pampered chef micro steamer) which took minutes then baked it....YUM! I will next time drizzle the butter and then the bread crumbs ...

Hooray...I have found a new way to prepare cauliflower. My hubby and I love veggies, and cauliflower is at the top of our list. Steaming and stir-frying were getting old, but this is my favori...

Although the cauliflower took a long time to steam, we really enjoyed this dish. Even the veggie-haters at our table were impressed.
