1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Place 1 inch of water in a large saucepan; add cauliflower. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until crisp-tender.

Meanwhile, in a small heavy saucepan, cook butter over medium heat for 5 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat; stir in lemon juice. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper; stir in 3 tablespoons browned butter.
