"This is a simple, homey-looking dish, but the seasonings pack a wallop that elevates the cauliflower well above the ordinary. Use the best quality cheese you can find - the better the cheese, the better the casserole."

Step 1

Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.

Step 2

Cut the cauliflower into small florets, leaving behind as much of the stalk as possible. Remove a thin slice from the bottom of the stalk (which is usually tough and dry), then cut the stalk into 1/2-inch chunks (you should have about 2 cups of chunks.)

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 350-degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 4

Heat the olive oil in a heavy ovenproof 3-quart pot over high heat just until the oil begins to smoke, about 4 minutes. Add the onions, celery, bell peppers, and cauliflower stalks and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are wilted and just beginning to brown, about 10 minutes.

Step 5

Add the garlic, seasoning mix, parsley, cilantro, and butter. Cook, stirring frequently, for 4 minutes, then remove from the heat. Stir in the stock and scrape the pot bottom thoroughly.

Step 6

Transfer to a 9 x 13-inch casserole and bake uncovered for 15 minutes.

Step 7

Remove from the oven, stir in the bread crumbs and florets, and mix completely, are tender, about 20 minutes. Serve hot and smile.
