Cauliflower pie

IMG_8784 As I mentioned here, I have been having a lot of fun with our weekly vegetable boxes from Aussie Farmers Direct. IMG_8693 I am, however, falling behind in blogging about the dishes we have created, as this was one of the dishes I made from our first box. The inspiration? IMG_8757 A beautiful head of cauliflower. Boiled, processed… IMG_8772IMG_8773 Then jazzed up with a few extra ingredients. IMG_8771IMG_8774 To create a simple yet tasty cauliflower pie. IMG_8778 I served this as a dinner ‘side’ for a couple nights, but it also made a rather tasty ‘heat and eat’ lunch too. IMG_8784 Perfect for when you have a grizzly bub in one hand, and a tummy that is crying out for food. IMG_8785 Showcasing one of my favourite vegetables too! Cauliflower pie

  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 potatoes, cooked and mashed
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 2 tsp Chinese five spice

  1. This looks great Lisa 🙂 I imagine it would be an easy recipe to adapt to taste / ingredients too (but retaining the cauliflower concept of course!).

  2. Can't wait to try this next week – when I'm back in charge of dinner (Amy is cooking this week so I can watch the Olympics). Looks delicious. I love cauli.

  3. Looks yum!!
    I found a recipe once that had cauliflower, feta cheese and lemon juice, garlic and olive oil .. Actually I think the recipe called for some other cheese but I only had feta in the house, so used that and was pleasantly surprised 🙂

  4. looks fantastic – I have a whole cauli in the fridge that I was thinking of using for a cauli pizza (though I have thought this before and got waylaid) which is quite similar but flatter

  5. I love cauliflower. Recently I tried making a faux pizza crust using cauliflower, really good!!

    This dish looks so easy and yummy!
