For the pastry

225g gluten-free flour, plus extra for rolling

100g vegetable shortening

1 large egg, beaten, plus extra beaten egg for brushing

For the Filling

85g strong mature cheddar, grated

3 eggs

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

4 tbsp lactose free double cream

250g small vine tomatoes

sprig thyme

Serves - 4


Put the gluten free flour and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Rub in the shortening until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.

Stir in the egg and about 1-2 tbsp water to form a soft dough. Knead well then wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan 180C. Knead the pastry again and roll it out to line a 20cm loose-bottomed flan tin or individual tart tins (the pastry won’t shrink, so no need to chill). Patch holes with spare pastry and brush the base and sides with egg.

Make the custard by mixing the remaining eggs into the Dijon mustard and lactose free cream. Sprinkle over the thyme leaves, cheggar and pour over the custard.

Arrange slices of tomato on the top. Bake for 10 mins, turn the oven down to 150C/fan 130C/gas 3, then bake for a further 15 mins until the custard is just set. Cool slightly before serving.
