2 large heads cauliflower
1 clove garlic, halved
1/4 cup olive oil
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
Lemon wedges, for serving
Position an oven rack in the bottom of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
Remove the leaves from the cauliflower, then trim the stem flush with the bottom of the head so the cauliflower sits flat on the prepared baking sheet. Rub the outside of each head with the cut garlic.
Whisk together the oil, 3 tablespoons mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a small bowl.
Put the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and brush the entire outside and inside with the mustard-oil mixture. Roast the cauliflower until nicely charred and tender (a long skewer inserted in the center of the cauliflower should pass through easily), 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size. Let rest for a few minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the parsley and Parmesan in a small bowl. Brush the outside of the roasted cauliflower heads all over with the remaining 1 tablespoon mustard and generously sprinkle with the Parmesan mixture.Cut the cauliflower into thick wedges and serve on plates with a sprinkle of salt, lemon wedges and any extra Parmesan mixture.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously coat a 8 inch springform pan with cooking spray.
Whisk eggs in a very large bowl. Add ricotta, Gruyère, olives, garlic, anchovy paste (or anchovies), pepper and the cooled onion; mix well.
Finely chop greens in a food processor. Mix into the egg mixture to combine, pour into pan.
Bake until set, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in the pans for 5 minutes. Loosen the edges with a knife and removed springform. Serve warm or at room temperature.
