This one is cauliflower, but a variety of vegetables can be used. Just boil for a few minutes and lay them in a casserole. Pour on the custard mixture and bake. 350-400 F. is OK. The time varies, but it usually runs 40 minutes to an hour.
For the custard:
1/2 cup (65 grams) all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup (180 ml) milk (whole (full fat) or reduced fat)
We had a question about vegetable dishes.
This is a vegetable dish, even if it doesn’t look like one. This one makes use of the green leaves from a leek. The leaves were boiled for a few minutes to soften them.
The basis for these “pies” is always pie crust, eggs, cheese, and maybe a little milk. We just spread the vegetable of the day in a layer over the crust and pour the egg mixture on top. In this case, the cheese was small curd cottage cheese. It takes around an hour to bake at 350-400 degrees F.
We do this bony cut with spices typical of Caribbean islands.
