Cauliflower is NOT one of my favourite vegetable, so I am always on the outlook for recipes, where I can use cauliflower, when I am unluckily to get cauliflower in my weekly vegetable box. This time I tried a modification recommended in the weekly newsletter from Årstiderne for week 31/2010 Årstiderne's weekly newsletter 31/2010 on the broccoli pie with goat cheese using cauliflower instead of broccoli.
Compared to the last time, when I made this pie with broccoli certain modification was applied. I increased the amount of goat cheese from 100 g to 150 g, which still did not give me and my taste buds enough goat cheese flavour.
Honestly, this recipe is NOT going to one of my favourite. Yes, I will eat the pie, but I will NOT make it again !!!!!!!!
I also increased the oven temperature from 175'C to 200'C, and this worked perfect for the pie in my oven.
And YES I did decided to crawl under the fence, where it has it's highest point = I did not make the pie dough myself, I used a commercial ready-to-use pie dough !!!!! And I feel OK doing so, as the alternative for me was not to make this pie at all !!!!!
