Ingredients
  • 1 medium-sized head of cauliflower, rinsed and chopped into bite-sized florets
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp shiro (rice) miso, "white miso"
  • 1 tsp herbs de provence
  • ½ tsp coriander
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • **Oat Crust**
  • ⅔ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tbsp ground flax
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp herbs de provence
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • Cooking spray
  • Optional topping: sage or thyme, pomegranate seeds
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a gratin dish with non-stick spray.
  2. In a small bowl, add 3 tbsp olive oil, miso, 1 tsp herbs de provence, coriander, lemon juice, sea salt and black pepper. Stir with a whisk to combine.
  3. Place rinsed/chopped cauliflower in a large bowl. Add miso mixture and toss to coat cauliflower. Pour cauliflower into gratin dish. Cover and bake for 40 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, prepare oat crust by adding oats to a food processor and pulsing until ground. Avoid blending to the point where they turn into flour. You want them to still have some texture.
  5. Pour ground oats into a bowl and add remaining crust ingredients (flax, cheese, oil, herbs and salt). Spread evenly over roasted cauliflower. Coat the top with nonstick spray. Place back in the oven and bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Turn the broiler to HIGH during the final two minutes to acquire a golden crust. Top with pomegranates and fresh sage (optional) and serve.
