Cauliflower Crust

  • 1 medium sized cauliflower
  • 130g Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 large free range egg
  • 1 tbsp of mixed dried or Italian herbs
  • sea salt and ground black pepper


  • 1 small yellow courgette
  • 1 small green courgette
  • 250g of garden peas their pods (shelled)
  • 1/2 tub of Ricotta cheese
  • 1 tbsp of mixed dried or Italian herbs
  • 5 large eggs
  • splash of milk
  • sea salt and ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas 4. Grease a 9" loose bottom flan tin.

  2. Chop up the cauliflower into florets and place in a food processor and blitz up. (you may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your food processor). Place the blitzed up cauliflower in a microwave proof bowl and cook for 5 minutes. Once the Cauliflower is cooked, tip out onto a clean tea towel and leave to cool (approximately 10-15 minutes). Once cooled wrap up the cooled cauliflower in the tea towel and squeeze out all the water. There will be lots and lots of water. Please make sure the cauliflower is cool before you do this, otherwise you will get burnt!

  3. Tip the dried cauliflower in to a clean bowl, add the Parmesan, 1 egg, herbs, salt and pepper and mix with a wooden spoon until combined. Tip the mixture into the greased flan tin and press out the cauliflower dough to form the crust, make sure you make it even and press right up the edges. Place in the oven and cook for approximately 10 minutes until starting to turn golden and the base feels firm.

  4. While the crust is cooking, thinly slice the courgettes (you might not need a whole one of each!) and shell the peas (I blanched them in boiling water for 2 minutes). Crack the 5 eggs into a jug, add the splash of milk, herbs, salt and pepper and whisk up.

  5. Once the crust is cooked, remove from oven. Layer the courgette across the base and sprinkle the peas over. Place blobs of ricotta evenly around the base. Finally pour over the whisked up egg mix. Place in the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes until firm.
