GLUTEN FREE CAULIFLOWER CHESTNUT CHEESE

This dish is shown with festive yellow cauliflower, but of course it would work equally well with a white cauliflower. It is relatively low in fat, yet because of the chestnuts and cheese, has a really rich flavor. 

  •  2 lbs. cauliflower, cut into small florets
  • 3 oz chopped cooked chestnuts
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 T minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Instructions:

    Heat oven to 400 degrees. Microwave cauliflower in a small amount of water until slightly softened. Mix herbs, cheese and breadcrumbs. Add 3/4 of mix to drained cauliflower. Spray baking pan with oil. Add cauliflower herb mix  to pan. Top with remaining herb, cheese and crumb mix. Bake covered until cheese begins to melt (about 10 minutes) and then a few minutes more, uncovered, until top is browned.

    This sounds delicious! I love the idea of cauliflower and chestnuts and parmesan together. I'm going to have to do a riff on this recipe.
