I was out of ideas for a frittata this week and thought “I wonder what is on Smitten Kitchen” and this was right there on the home page. I made one change: after gently steaming the cauliflower, rather than draining it on a towel, I tossed it into a hot skillet with about a tablespoon of oil to remove excess moisture and caramelize the florets.
