Roasted Cauliflower and Gruyere Frittata

Serves 4

2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 small head of cauliflower (about 1 pound), cut into small florets
1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika
Kosher salt and black pepper
6 large eggs, beaten
1-1/2 cups of whole milk
4 ounces Gruyere, grated (1 cup)
2 Tablespoons chopped parsley

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.  Oil a 9 inch pie plate.  Toss the cauliflower with the paprika, olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper on a rimmed baking sheet.  Roast, tossing once, until browned and just tender about 15-18 minutes.  Let cool for 5 minutes.  Spread evenly in the pie plate.

2.  Whisk the eggs, milk, cheese, parsley, and 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper.  Pour over the cauliflower.   Bake until the top is golden and the custard is set in the center, about 25 to 30 minutes.
