WHOLE LITTLE CAULIFLOWERS WITH CRISPY BREAD CRUMBS (FROM “LOCAL FLAVORS”)

4 small cauliflowers, about 5 inches across

1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs

1/2 cup finely chopped parsley

2 to 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon Dijon or coarse mustard

salt

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

grated Parmesan or Pecorino cheese

1.  Wash the cauliflowers well.  Toast the bread crumbs in the oven or in a skillet until crisp and golden.  Melt the butter.

2.  Steam the cauliflower, the curds facing down in the pot, until tender, 6 to 8 minutes.  Set them on individual plates or a platter.  Mix the melted butter with the parsley, mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the pepper flakes.  Pour it over the cauliflower, then add the bread crumbs and grate a little cheese over all.
