Ingredients

  • 1 deep 24cm blind-baked pastry case
  • 40g butter
  • 85g courgettes (baby or regular), sliced at an angle
  • 85g runner beans, stringed, halved lengthways and sliced
  • 85g fresh or frozen peas
  • 3 continental salad onions, stems chopped and bulbs quartered
  • 300ml milk
  • 25g plain flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 110g log full-fat soft goat's cheese, sliced
  • 3 small vine tomatoes, quartered

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 170C/ conventional 190C/gas 5. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and cook the green vegetables and onions for 5 minutes, stirring until starting to soften. Tip the milk and flour into the pan and stir over the heat until it thickens to a smooth sauce. Cool for 5 minutes or so, stirring to stop a skin forming.

  2. Beat the eggs into the sauce and generously season. Pour into the pastry case and scatter with the goat’s cheese and tomatoes.

  3. Bake for 40 minutes until the filling is set, turning golden. Cool for a few minutes before taking from the tin. Serve with a green salad.
