I made this for my daughter when she was here last time. It was delicious! I ate some anyway, despite my mild egg allergy. It made my mouth itch, but it was worth it! OMG, so sweet and delicious with the Maui onion and fresh herbs. And the cold tomato on top was a nice juxtaposition to the hot quiche.

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
olive oil for sauteeing
3 large
cauliflower florets, sliced 1/4" thick
1/2 large
sweet maui onion
1
celery rib
2 Tbsp
chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp
chopped fresh rosemary
1 tsp
fresh thyme leaves
1 Tbsp
chopped fresh sage
1 pinch
lavender, crushed (the tiniest pinch! you don't want too much)
6 medium
eggs
1 can(s)
coconut milk, unsweetened
4 oz
grated champagne cheddar cheese

GARNISH

1
tomato, sliced
1/4 c
chopped fresh green onion tops or chives
sea salt flakes

Step-By-Step

1Preheat Oven to 425 F.

2Saute the cauliflower sliced in olive oil until tender, then set aside.

3Saute the onions and celery until caramelized.

4Stir in all the herbs and saute a minute or two more until they're wilted. Be sure to go light on the lavender, but don't leave it out. Too much lavender can ruin it, but just enough adds a lovely aromatic note.

5Spread the onion-celery-herb mixture evenly in a quiche pan, then top with cooked cauliflower slices. Sprinkle with salt to taste.

6Whip the eggs and coconut milk until smooth.

7Pour egg mixture over the vegetables.

8Top evenly with grated champagne cheddar. (I found this cheese at the grocery store. I'm sure there are several brands, but I used Deitz & Watson.)

9Bake 25 to 30 minutes until golden on top.

10Garnish with tomato slices and chives.

11Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and serve immediately. (The sea salt flakes were a gift from my daughter that she got while in Paris a few years ago.)
