Cauliflower, Cheese and Creamy Coconut Milk Curry Pie

Some times, the most unexpected recipes come out from empty kitchen cupboards paired with a big hunger. That was my case last night when, starving after a long day at work, I forgot I had to make some food shopping on the way back. All I had left at home was a cauliflower, some cheese, the yolks from a previous recipe and coconut milk.

The forced experiment of combining them together made this delicious pie possible.

I literally could not stop devouring it so good it was. The delicate sweet taste of both the cauliflower and coconut milk blended superbly with the creamy cheese. Curry was the spicy component with made this pie an even more enjoyable experience.

I am sharing this recipe with you, hoping that you may love it too 🙂
