Ratatouille & feta pie

Method

 

  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal). 
  • Line a lightly oiled tart tin (or springform cake tin) with pastry. Top with a large sheet of kitchen foil, overhanging a bit, and fill with dried beans. Cook in the oven for about 15 mins until the pastry is lightly coloured. Then remove the foil and beans and set aside (you can re-use).
  • At the same time, heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan and gently sauté the red onion, garlic and zucchini until reasonably tender, regularly stirring.
  • Then add the capsicums, squash and eggplant. Stir well and cook until very tender.
  • Transfer the vegies to a large bowl, season generously and set aside.
  • Whisk the cream, milk, eggs and seasonings in another bowl until well combined.
  • Spoon the Ratatouille into the pastry shell, smooth the top and scatter with the cherry tomatoes and feta. Then carefully pour the custard evenly over the top and cook the pie in the oven for about 40 mins until just set. Remove and set aside for 20-30 mins before unmolding.
  • Serve with a simple green salad on the side.
  • nb.  To make it easier to portion, you can finely dice all the vegies.
