Cauliflower Quiche

Potato crust:
1 1/2 to 2 cups packed, grated raw potato
1/2 tsp salt
1  egg, beaten (optional)
1/4 cup minced onion
  
Filling:
1 cup chopped onion
1  medium clove garlic, minced
3 Tblsp butter or margarine
  
1  medium cauliflower, cut into small florets
  dash thyme
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp salt
  black pepper
  
2  eggs
1/4 cup milk
  
1 cup (heaping) grated cheddar cheese
  
  paprika
  
Use 1 9-inch pie pan

Potato Crust: (or, you may instead use a traditional unbaked pie crust)
Squeeze liquid out of the grated potato. Mix potato with remaining crust ingredients. Pat mixture into well-oiled 9-inch pie pan, building up the sides of the crust. Bake for 30 minutes at 400F, then brush the crust with a little oil to crispen it. Bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes.

Saute onions and garlic in butter for 5 minutes. Add cauliflower, herbs, salt and pepper to taste, and cook, covered, 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Beat the eggs and milk together, and combine with the cheese and the cauliflower mixture. Pour into the crust and dust with paprika. Bake at 375F for 35 to 40 minutes, until set.
