Roasted Cauliflower with Walnuts, Orange zest and Parmesan

After talking about how much I love roasted cauliflower with a friend at work this week, I just had to make it and 'scratch that itch'. So, I made a pan of roasted cauiflower, and it was so delicious and soul-satisfying, that I just had to blog about here it is...

Roasted Cauliflower with Walnuts and Parmesan Cheese
serves 4

1 head cauliflower, cored and chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil
zest of one orange
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle 2 Tablespoons olive oil into an 8x8" baking dish and toss in the cauliflower, orange zest, walnuts and salt and pepper. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese, and then drizzle with remaining 2 Tablespoons olive oil. Roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. I could pretty much just eat the whole pan in one sitting, but it really is a great side dish for all kinds of things. Enjoy!
