Zucchini, mushroom & potato pudding with gruyere


  • Preheat oven to 190°C fan forced (210°C normal).
  • Cook the potatoes in a pot of lightly salted, boiling water until reasonably tender. Drain well. 
  • Heat a little oil with the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the zucchini until lightly browned, adding the mushrooms and seasonings towards the end. 
  • To make the batter, combine the eggs, flour, milk, crème fraiche, parsley and seasonings in a food processor until smooth. 
  • Place the potatoes, zucchini and mushrooms in a gratin dish or casserole. Gently toss, pour over the batter and cook in the oven for about 20 mins. Then scatter the cheese on top and continue to cook until the pudding is just set. 
  • Serve with good crusty bread and a simple green salad on the side.
