Cauliflower "Quiche"

food-4 food-3
I'm calling this "Quiche" instead of Quiche, because it's actually a fake, it doesn't have any crust in it, and is basically, just the quiche filling. To me that's tastier and healthier, but if you really love the crust and don't mind all the butter, you are quite welcome to add it.

1 whole cauliflower
1 onion
1 small yogurt container (I love FAGE, but whatever you have is good)
1/2 cup of grated cheese (I used cheddar, but I think a sharper cheese would work even better, like gruyere or even blue cheese)
2 eggs
4-5 TBS flour
Spices (I used black pepper, paprika and Nutmeg)
a little bit of olive oil
1 TBS brown sugar

If you want - extra egg per mini quiche and a bit extra grated cheese for decoration.

How to make it:
Break cauliflower info floretts and cook in water for about half hour till soft. when the cauliflower is cooked through, strain the water and leave to dry for a couple of minute.

Chop the onion and then fry it in a bit of olive oil. mix every minute or two, when it starts to turn golden, ad the sugar and mix for another 4-5 minutes till fully brown.

in a large mixing bowl. mash the cauliflower using a potato masher or a fork. the texture should be grainy and rough so that there are still chunk of cauliflower. Then add yogurt, cheese, egg, spices and fried onion.

Add flour, spoon by spoon and mix. Thickness should be like thick mah potato. If it's still runny, add a bit more flower.

Pour into a pie \ casserole \ muffin pan. Bake at 375 for about 30 minutes till the top browns and the house smells amazing.

If you want to go overboard. make a little hole on the top of each little quiche (or a few holes if using a large dish) and half way through baking, break and egg into each hole and sprinkle with cheese. Continue baking till the egg is cooked through.
