Ingredients

Shortcrust Pastry
168.75 g SuperValu Plain Flour
82.5 g SuperValu Butter cold & cut into cubes
SuperValu Salt & Pepper
0.75 Red Onion
0.75 Red Pepper
3 cloves Garlic
1.5 sprigs Thyme peel off woody stem
Mixed Salad
0.75 bag SuperValu Mixed Lettuce
0.75 SuperValu Courgette grated
1.5 SuperValu Tomatoes cut into wedges
From the Store Cupboard
1.5 SuperValu Eggs
112.5 ml SuperValu Milk
37.5 g SuperValu Cheddar Cheese grated
0.75 tbsp SuperValu Olive Oil

Method

  1. Sieve the plain flour into a large mixing bowl, add in the salt and pepper and mix well.
  2. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Slowly mix in the water and stir until the pastry comes together into a ball (you may or may not need all the water so add it gradually).
  4. Allow the pastry to rest and then allow to rest in the fridge.
  5. After about 30 minutes roll out the pastry on a lightly floured work surface and use it to line 4 x five-inch fluted flan rings.
    I normally return the flan rings to the fridge at this stage to prevent shrinkage later.

Filling

  1. Meanwhile cut up the pepper, courgette and red onion into bite size chunks, scatter with the diced garlic and drizzle with some olive oil.
  2. Roast in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool.
  4. Whisk together the eggs and the milk with the thyme leaves and the grated cheese.
  5. Divide the roasted vegetables between the bottoms of the pastry lined flan dishes and then divide the egg and cheese mixture on top.
  6. Place the fluted flan rings onto a flat baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the egg custard is set and the pastry has turned golden brown.
  7. Mix together the lettuce, grated courgette and tomatoes with the olive oil.
  8. Serve the tartlets immediately with a little salad.
