1/4 c. coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
Dash of cayenne
1 c. shredded Gruyere cheese
3 tbsp. butter
- Preheat broiler. Trim dark and sprouted parts of the leek and slice lengthwise. Soak in water to clean out the grit. Dry off and place in a roasting pan. Brush with olive oil. Broil 8 minutes total, turning every 3 minutes. Cool on a cutting board and slice.
- Preheat oven to 350 F. Whisk eggs, coconut milk, cayenne, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Stir in leeks and cheese.
- Heat butter over medium-low heat in an oven safe skillet. Add egg mixture and cook for 3 minutes, occasionally lifting eggs up to allow to set. Bake 10-15 minutes, or until eggs are set. Cool and cut into 6 wedges. Serve with a side salad with oil and vinegar.
