Wendy's Cauliflower & Mushroom Pie




















As soon as I saw this pie on Wendy's blog, A Wee Bit of Cooking, I knew I had to make it. You see, our summer here in Scotland is more like Autumn. It is cool and very, very wet.

So, bring on the comfort food and to hang with salads!

















Wendy's pie is filled with cauliflower, leek and mushrooms in a creamy bechamel sauce and topped with puff pastry. The original pie was a Chanterelle & Cauliflower Pie, however I couldn't find any chanterelles, so it was just bog standard mushrooms for me, but it was still great.

Graham loved this pie! He had seconds and thirds. So thanks for the recipe Wendy, we will definitely be having this again soon.

I have to add a thank you to my friend Adam who gave me the gorgeous cabbage plate. Thanks Adam, I love it :)

  2. I'm ticking off the days when the weather cools down here so I can have the oven on more often for cozy casseroles like this. It would also be good with a thick crust of fried breadcrumbs on top. Now I'm going to have to hop over to see Wendy's post. ; )

  4. Of course, the cabbage plate is very pretty (nice friends you have, darls!), but so's the new Tinned Tomatoes look, Holler!

    The pie is bookmarked for me as well. I knew it would be good and am very pleased it lived up to your expectaions too.

    Maybe what we could do is swap some of our weather until the temperatures are good for both of us :)

  10. I am in love with your gorgeous cabbage plate

    And it is good to see Wendy's pie works well with bog standard mushrooms as chances of me finding chanterelles is slim

  20. I am loving cauliflower lately. And take the easy out by just roasting it in the oven with olive oil and salt. Sigh, but your pie sounds lovely!

  31. hi holler - just wanted to report that we tried this out last night and it was a winner. very tasty and comforting, and the combo of mushrooms and cauliflower unexpectedly good! but perhaps it was just the magical properties o f bechamel? anyhow, thanks for writing about this pie - it will definitely be returning to our place.
