Cauliflower-Cheese Pie

Jason and I went on a little pie loving streak as we were watching Twin Peaks, and this Cauliflower-Cheese Pie was one of the many I made. This yummy pie isn’t the most healthy vegetable pie, but it is delicious and not too hard to make. Recipe is originally from the Moosewood Cookbook and calls for a grated potato crust, but I rebelled and just used my grandma’s flour pie crust.
