Ingredients

Cauliflower Crust

  • 1 medium sized cauliflower
  • 130g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 large free range egg
  • 1 tbsp of mixed dried or Italian herbs
  • sea salt and ground black pepper

Filling

  • Olive Oil
  • Approximately 12 baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 125g goats cheese
  • 5 large free range eggs
  • splash of milk
  • 1 tbsp of mixed dried or Italian herbs
  • sea salt and ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas 4. Grease a 9" loose bottom, flan tin.

  2. Half the baby plum tomatoes and place on a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle sea salt over. Place the tray in the oven for 20-25 minutes until nicely roasted.

  3. While the tomatoes are roasting. Cut the cauliflower into florets and place into a food processor. Blitz up the cauliflower (you may have to do this in batches, depending on how big your food processor is!) Place the blitzed up cauliflower in a microwave proof bowl and cook in the microwave for 5 minutes. Once cooked, pour the cauliflower onto a clean tea towel and leave to cool for approximately 15 minutes. Once cooled, wrap the tea towel around the cauliflower and squeeze out all the water. There will be lots and lots. Please make sure the cauliflower is cool otherwise you will get burnt! Place the dried out cauliflower in a clean bowl and add the Parmesan cheese, egg and mixed dried herbs, with a little salt and pepper and mix with a wooden spoon until combined. Tip the "dough" into the flan tin and using your fingers press the cauliflower mix around the tin to form a crust, make sure you get it as even as possible and press up the sides. Place the flan tin in the oven and cook for approximately 10-15 minutes until it starts to turn golden. The crust should feel firm.

  4. While the crust is cooking, crack the 5 eggs into a jug, add the splash of milk, herbs, salt and pepper. Whisk up. Once the crust is cooked remove from the oven, arrange the roasted tomatoes in the crust and then crumble the goats cheese over. Pour in the egg mixture over the tomatoes and cheese. Place the flan tin in the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes until firm.
