meatless supper #8

This is the last week of Enviromom's meatless supper club. I decided to make the Cauliflower-Cheese Pie with Grated Potato Crust from the Moosewood Cookbook as my last recipe of the project. This is sort of quiche like, but less eggy and more vegetably, especially since the crust is grated potatoes instead of a regular crust. With all the cheese and veggies in it, there is nothing not to like about this dish, except for the long prep time. Being an under-reader of recipes as I am, I neglected to notice that the crust bakes for a full 40 minutes, then once the filling is added, back into the oven it goes for another 35-40 minutes! So dinner was later than expected, and as you can see from the photo, I lost the light once again. Oh well!!! I think everyone liked this, at least a little. I thought it was excellent. I'll definitely make this again. I've noticed that with these more time consuming recipes, things really do go better after the first time or two making it. Next time I'll start early!

Check Enviromom on Friday for more meatless meal ideas. This is the last week, but I know I'll be checking the archives in the future--lots of good links over there.
