Allsorts torta

For anyone who dreads the thought of making gluten free pastry (which is generally horrible) this is a great alternative for the traditional quiche as the flour is included in the batter recipe so it is just as filling. It freezes well and feeds about 5 people. Add any leftovers you have lurking around in the fridge- it's a great end of the week use it up meal.


  • 4oz gluten free plain flour- Doves Farm or similar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 2oz butter, melted
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 grated courgettes
  • 4oz grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 chopped onion
  • Anything else you happen to have lying around- bacon, ham, chorizo, peppers, tomatoes, cooked baby potatoes, roast vegetables. It's great for using up leftovers.


  • Put flour, eggs, baking powder and melted butter in a large bowl and mix thoroughly with a hand mixer until you get a nice smooth batter.
  • Stir in grated courgettes and cheese. Season.
  • Add any already cooked ingredients chopped into rustic chunks.
  • Chop and gently fry the onion, bacon, if using, and peppers in an oven proof 10 " frying pan or stove top friendly casserole. Allow to cool slightly and add to the batter mix.
  • Pour the whole lot back into the greased oven proof pan, decorate the top with tomatoes if you want and bake at gas 3, 325 or 170 for 35 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch.
  • Allow to cool a little and cut into thick slices.
  • Serve with spicy potato or sweet potato wedges or zingy beetroot and orange salad found in "light bites"
