  • 6 cups cauliflower florets, cut no larger than 1 in.
  • 3 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 2 oil-packed anchovy fillets, minced
  • 2 small tomatoes, canned or fresh, minced
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp. red chile flakes
  • 9 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, coarsely chopped
  • 4 large eggs


  1. 1. Put oven rack in top third of oven and preheat to 450°. Combine cauliflower, garlic, shallot, ginger, anchovies, tomatoes, chile flakes, and 8 tbsp. oil in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. 2. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, spread in a single layer, and roast until cauliflower is just tender and beginning to brown on the edges, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
  3. 3. Heat remaining 1 tbsp. oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully crack eggs, one at a time, into hot oil. Season eggs to taste with salt and pepper. Fry until edges begin to brown and white is almost set near the yolk, about 1 minute. Flip eggs and cook 15 seconds more for over easy.
