This recipe has been adapted from one by Michel Roux in his book Pastry (ISBN 1844006204). Michel's recipe uses asparagus and sem-confit red peppers, but as asparagus is out of season and I can't be bothered to semi-confit the peppers, I have just roasted therm and substituted the asparagus with fine green beans.

  1. Roll out the pastry thinly and use it to line a loose bottomed 35 x 11 cm and 2.5 cm deep tranche tin.
  2. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 190° C (375° F - gas 5) and bake the case blind for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the baking beans and paper, reduce the oven to 170° C (325° F - gas 3) and bake the case for a further 10 minutes.
  5. Cover the bottom of the case with the diced red peppers.
  6. Whisk the eggs, cream, seasoning and nutmeg and pour three-quarters of the mixture over the peppers.
  7. Arrange the drained beans over the top and then pour over the remaining egg and cream mixture - you may find, as I did, that you have some mixture left over.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes and let wait on a wire rack for 20 minutes before unmolding.
  9. Garnish with the chopped herbs and serve warm.

Serving suggestions

Serve with salad and new potatoes.

Chef's notes

I would recommend placing the tranche tin on a baking tray before putting in the oven. This is because the egg and cream mixture is runny and may escape through the bottom of the tranche tin and make a mess of your oven.
