Ingredients

  • Pastry:
  • 40 g plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 70 g chilled butter (diced)
  • 50 g mature cheddar (grated)
  • Water_to_bind water to bind
  • Filling:
  • 300 g frozen peas (blanched drained and cooled)
  • 100 g broccoli (blanched, drained and cooled)
  • 80 g chorizo sausage (sliced thinly)
  • 200 g feta (roughly crumbled)
  • 1 tablespoon red chilli (finely chopped, optional)
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 200 ml double cream or crème fraîche
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Method

  1. Pastry: Put the flour, salt and butter into a food processor and whizz for a few seconds until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Tip into a bowl, stir in the cheese and add 2 tablespoons of cold water, gradually mixing with a fork until the pastry comes together. Wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll out the pastry into a circle just bigger than a 28cm flan tin. Line the tin, pressing the pastry well into the case. Trim the edges and prick the base with a fork.
  2. Refrigerate for another 30 minutes, then, using baking beans, bake the tart case blind for 15 minutes. Remove beans and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  3. Filling: Arrange the peas, broccoli, chorizo and feta in the flan dish, sprinkle with the chopped red chillies. Lightly beat together the eggs, yolks and cream or crème fraîche, season with a little salt and black pepper. Add the liquid to the flan tin.
  4. Lower the temperature of the oven to 170ºC/325ºF/Gas
  5. Mark 4 and cook the tart for 20-25 minutes, or until just set in the centre.
Serving tip

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/Gas Mark 6.

The less water you use when cooking peas, the less vitamin C is lost. Steaming helps to conserve this vitamin. When boiling frozen peas, add enough water to cover, bring to the boil and then cover and simmer for 3 minutes. To microwave 227 grams (8oz) of frozen peas add 15ml (1 tablespoon) of water, place in a non metallic container and cover. Cook on full power for 4 minutes (750W) or 4 1/2 minutes (650W)
