FACT 1: I was planning a small get together at the house after a day of kayaking. Since I would have no time to prepare after kayaking, I needed a refreshing meal that I could mostly pre-prepare.
FACT 2: My husband LOVES strawberries and he really likes my strawberry rhubarb pie, so that was his suggestion for dessert.
FACT 3: Rhubarb wasn’t in season and I just hate hunting for off-season produce…
So, the strawberry cardamom pie was born!
And it was a hit!! So much so, that when I finally remembered to take the requisite picture, only 1 slice remained.
This delicious strawberry pie with a hint of cardamom and topped with whipped cream is easy to make and is just the right refreshing dessert to help beat the heat. I especially like that it can be modified to make in gluten free, lactose free and vegan!
Enjoy this strawberry pie with an Indian twist. 😉
