  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 100 ml of heavy cream
  • 2 eggs

How to do it:

Step 1 – The dough:

Just like with the previous recipes, we are starting with the dough as it needs time to chill in the fridge so we can handle it easier. Once prepared, cover it with plastic foil again so it does not absorb any unpleasant scents from the fridge.

Step 2 – The filling:

Wash and clean the veggies, peel the carrots if you would like to, then cut them into juliennes.

Heat up the oil in the pan and add the veggies. Stir and cook for about 8-10 minutes until they begin to soften, then you can season with salt and pepper.

Preheat your oven to 392˚F or 200˚C and meanwhile prepare your sauce by mixing the heavy cream, grated cheese and eggs in a bowl.

Step 3 – Assembling and baking:

Roll out the cold dough and transfer to a tray, bake like this with no filling to 15 minutes then get it out and let it cool for 5-10 minutes. This is an important step, otherwise the filling will leak out from the soft dough. Now is time to add the veggies and the sauce on top.

Bake for half an hour more.
