Last night I made Cauliflower pie. Here's the recipe:
I used a store bought a pie shell, but you can make your own. Set it out, to thaw out at room temperature. Separate the shells and poke the base with a fork, this helps it get that crispy texture instead of a soggy texture while it bakes.
Pre-heat the oven at 400 degrees.
Use 1 cauliflower head, cut off the stalks and place into a bowl with water. Place in the microwave for 10 minutes. Depending on your microwave setting, it may cook faster or slower. Test a cooled piece to see if it's cooked to your liking.
In a frying pan sauté 1 diced onion, 1 cup of frozen mixed vegetables and 1 diced pepper.
Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl; the cauliflower, the sautéed vegetables and 1 can of cream of broccoli.
Stir well, then place into your pie shell. Add the top pie shell and press the edges. I found that slowly lifting the corners before removing helps it stay on better.
Then decorate. I cut out a heart, which allows steam to get out and pressed the edges with a fork.
Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden brown. Let it cool down, before serving.
I also water colored our Thanksgiving Menu
In the evenings I enjoy watching old movies and water coloring. I have lots of watercolors of my childhood story, memories, recipes and traditions that my husband and mum think I should compile a book. If I do, it would be lovely to pass down to my children one day.
We usually used canned cranberry sauce, but have been looking for recipes to make my own, any suggestions?
