Cauliflower and Broccoli Pie

A homemade pie crust houses a creamy filling of cauliflower and broccoli in white sauce, flavoured with pepper and covered with cheese, ready to be baked into a delicacy that none can resist! The pie crust has a superb melt-in-the-mouth texture, which perfectly complements the gooey filling.

Just make sure the white sauce is thick enough; otherwise it will ooze through the short crust pastry and make the Cauliflower Broccoli Pie soggy and difficult to eat. Serve the pie immediately to relish the awesomely cheesy texture!

A bowl of your favourite soup and a slice of Cauliflower and Broccoli Pie will team up well for a satiating meal.
