Sun Oven Cauliflower Quiche

Cauliflower Crust

Any savory filling will work with this flourless dough. Don’t mind the cracks, they weren’t there before I dropped it.

Cauliflower Crusted Solar Quiche

Ingredients

Crust:

1 cauliflower, stems and leaves removed

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 large egg

1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Filling:

6 slices thinly sliced pancetta

1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed

5 large eggs

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Spray a pie pan with cooking spray; set aside.

Prepare the crust: Remove the florets from the cauliflower, discard the stem and leaves. Working in batches, pulse the florets in a food processor until they resemble cornmeal. Put the ground florets in a microwave safe bowl and cook for 5 minutes. Let cool completely, at least 10 minutes. Place the cooked cauliflower in a sturdy kitchen towel and wring out all the moisture. Put the dry cauliflower into a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, Parmesan, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Using your hands, mix the egg mixture into the cauliflower. Pat the cauliflower dough into the prepared pie pan. Bake in the Sun Oven until edges brown, 30 to 45 minutes. Leave Sun Oven out. Cool the crust on a rack.

Prepare the filling: In a skillet, cook the pancetta until just lucent, about 3 minutes; do not cook until crisp. Line the cooled cauliflower crust with the pancetta. Squeeze excess water out of the spinach. Put the spinach in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the spinach, stirring to combing. Pour the mixture over the pancetta in the cauliflower crust. Bake in the Sun Oven until the filling is set, about 40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 4 servings.
