Rustic pie of cauliflower and cheese. A simple pie made with puff pastry, cauliflower, cheese and the delicate scent of marjoram and mint. Like all the pies, It is a wildcard in the kitchen and is ready in a flash. Rich in vegetables, the pie with cauliflower will help solve without much effort the dinner problem, but it is also perfect a casual evening with friends or, view the summer, a picnic. Like all traditional savoury pies, It's even better if eaten the next day to the preparation. If you like, You can enrich the rustic pie cauliflower and soft cheese with ham: I've prepared two times, one without and one with ham, and I enjoyed it both ways.

Obviously the binder is the egg, as in any self-respecting quiche, beaten with a little’ cream (but you can also use whole milk), Parmesan and pecorino. Stracchino gives slightly sour creaminess and a tip that goes well with Marjoram. If you want, You can also use the broccoli, for a touch of color. Try it, because I'm sure you'll be fine. Is, if you love me like pies, you can not also try the classic and delicious QUICHE LORRAINE (that are in VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube Channel), the QUICHE WITH ARTICHOKES AND TRENTINGRANA or the RUSTIC AND CHEESE CAKE ARTICHOKES: find these and many other prescription in SPECIAL RECIPES QUICHES. Have a good day!
