Instructions
 

  • Start making the dough by mixing together the rice flour, buckwheat flour, xantham gum, baking powder and a pinch of salt.

  • Add the finely chopped leeks and quartered broccoli florets. Cook for around 15mins until soft. Season to taste.
  • In a separate bowl mix together the eggs, milk, cream, curry, grated cheese and some grated nutmeg. Season to taste.
  • Roll out the pastry and place in a Ø 28cm / 11 inches loose bottomed tart tin. Do not worry if it breaks, just patch it up in the tin.
  • Transfer the cooked vegetables followed by the egg mixture on top of the pastry. Make sure you spread the egg mixture evenly.
  • Cook for 25-30 mins until golden and set.
  • Leave to cool for 5 mins before serving.
