Begin preparing the shortcrust pastry working the flour with the butter, water and salt quickly. Form a ball and set aside. Boil the cauliflower, drain and place in a colander. Put the raisins soak in warm water. Divide the dough into two parts and roll out into two circles. Add the cauliflower florets, then the drained raisins and chopped walnuts to the first circle. Then arrange the slices of parmesan over the top. Cover with the second circle of dough and bake for 35-40 minutes at 180°C.

If you want to enjoy an aperitif in the company of friends and family, your cauliflower quiche should be accompanied by a good bottle of slightly fruity Prosecco.
Cauliflower pie is a great appetizer that despite its name suggesting French cuisine, has its origins in Germany.
