Thinly rolled short crust pastry (4 oz plain flour, 1 oz unsalted butter & 1 oz lard)
A couple of slices of smoked salmon
1/4 romanesco (can use broccoli or asparagus instead) cut into small pieces and steamed until aldente
A small glug of milk
Handful chopped parsley
1 tsp mustard powder
Handful of grated strong cheddar
Preheat the oven at 180’C fan.
Roll out the pastry and use it to line a pie dish. Sprinkle 1/3 of the grated cheese onto the base. Pop into the oven for 10-15 mins
Meanwhile chop up the romanesco and pop into steam (I did mine in the microwave).
Chop up the parsley & smoked salmon & grate the cheese.
Beat the milk into the eggs and add the parsley, mustard powder and a pinch of pepper.
Evenly spread the romanesco & salmon in the pie dish. Top with the egg mix and sprinkle on the cheese.
Cook in the oven for about 45 minutes until golden.
I love using more unusual fruits and veggies. Romanesco is cross between broccoli and cauliflower with a funky look and delicious taste I’d highly recommend it 😍
