Watch the video above for a visual guide, then follow the below recipe for a simple, satisfying meal.

Roasted Cauliflower Frittata


1 large heirloom tomato, diced
1 shallot, sliced thin
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
1 large handful arugula
1 pinch smoked paprika
Kosher salt
1/2 cup cauliflower, chopped
4 eggs
1 ball burrata
2 cups extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven 375 degrees F. Combine tomato, shallot, arugula, and cilantro in medium mixing bowl. Season with paprika, salt, and pepper.
  2. In a nonstick pan, toss cauliflower with oil to coat; roast cauliflower for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove cauliflower from oven, and rest on rack to allow any excess oil to drain.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat 4 eggs to a soft consistency. Combine eggs, spoonfuls of burrata, and cauliflower in the nonstick pan. Bake in oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until done to your liking.
  4. Remove pan from oven, and slide frittata onto cutting board. Spoon tomato mixture over top to your liking. Season with salt, pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil.
