Cornbread Frittata with Jalapeno and Sriracha Roasted Cauliflower

Stores well for up to 1 week. Preheat oven/toaster oven to 350 F. In an ovenproof dish, heat for 7-10 minutes until crispy outside. Or warm a cast iron or heavy bottomed pan on medium and warm both sides for a few minutes until gently browned. Serve with peppery greens and a dollop of cilantro cream (for those who are less spice tolerant we recommend removing the seeded jalapeno on top and topping with cashew cream which mellows the heat.)
