This recipe is my favorite way to serve and eat cauliflower. The crunchiness of the Panko bread crumbs gives a nice contrast to the soft cauliflower.

With only a 1/2 teaspoon of fat/serving, this dish is low fat and very healthy.

How to Make Panko Cauliflower


  1. Cook cauliflower with water in the microwave for 6 minutes.
  2. In a large skillet, add 1 1/2 teaspoon oil and heat over medium heat. Add Panko bread crumbs, and stirring periodically, cook for 3 minutes until they are brown. Put browned crumbs in a dish.
  3. Add 1 1/2 teaspoon oil to the same skillet, heat, and add drained cauliflower. Sauté until the cauliflower is golden. Add fresh parsley, salt, pepper, and seasoning if using. Stir and then sprinkle browned Panko bread crumbs over the top.
  4. Note: Use your imagination for seasonings that can be sprinkled on the cooked cauliflower: paprika, chili powder, taco seasoning, . . .
  5. Have only dried parsley? Add it to the cauliflower as you cook it in the microwave.
