This bread crumb topping is also great over roasted broccoli or Brussels sprouts.
To make this plant based, leave out Parmesan cheese or use vegan Parmesan cheese.
Fill a medium pot with water and bring to a boil. Heat oven to 375 F. Lightly coat an 8-by-8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, oil, lemon zest, basil, paprika and salt. Use your hands to evenly combine the mixture.
Place the cauliflower in boiling water for 3 minutes; drain. Place the cauliflower in the baking dish and sprinkle the bread crumb mixture evenly over the top. Bake for about 15 minutes or until crust is lightly brown.
