1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 450 F and oil a 9 inch pie plate.
  • Separate cauliflower florets and discard the core. Add florets to large pot of boiling salted water. Boil about 15 minutes, until fork tender. Drain and mash.
  • Heat 3 tbsp oil in large skillet, and add garlic. Cook over low heat about 1 minute, making sure that garlic doesn't burn. Add mashed cauliflower, salt and pepper (to taste), to the garlic in the skillet. Raise heat to high, and stir mixture until the moisture evaporates. Remove from heat and cool for 15 minutes.
  • Stir eggs and flour into cooled cauliflower mixture, and spread evenly into pie plate. Sprinkle top with remaining oil. Bake 30 minutes, until the top just starts to brown.

  1. Thought it was good, but probably wouldn't prepare it again.
  2. I followed the directions as listed and it was a hit. It will have a permanent place in my recipe collection. I put the mixture in an 8x8 because I didn't have a pie tin and it was almost like a kugel. I will double the recipe next time.
  3. There was a bit too much garlic for my taste and I added some cumin. I wasnt crazy about the texture. All in all it was ok and I will make it again, maybe with some alterations. Definitely appreciated another wheat and dairy free recipe.
  4. I don't know what I did wrong - I thought this was bland and boring. In fact, I would rather eat plainsteamed cauliflower. I may have screwed up somehow when I was cooking this. Salvagable with some herbs and cheese. I would not make this recipe again.
  5. Genius way to eat cauliflower. Absolutely delightful, was a total winner!
