The sweetness of the onion in this frittata along with the nuttiness of the roasted cauliflower is just divine! Great served warm with a salad but is equally delicious cold. I always think that a frittata is a great dish when you want a no fuss dish that is easy to make and tasty to eat. This dish will not disappoint.
To multi-task, cook the cauliflower and onions at the same time. I've also made this by throwing the cauliflower and onions together in a large frying pan and cooking slowly until both are golden. Although just as nice, there's something about roasting a cauliflower that gives it a nuttier taste.
I used Parmesan cheese but other cheeses would be as equally as tasty. Perhaps Feta or Cheddar?
This dish is rather a form of hunger torture as you make it though. From the smell to the caramalised onions, to the roasted cauliflower. It was nothing short of a miracle that both vegetables were added to the pan and not munched directly!
