    Hi, not being a pastry fan I opted to make my base from sliced Aubergine, just lightly fry to soften and line the tin… works great

    Has anyone made a non pastry flan? Similar to a frittata, but without so many eggs. And how did you accomplish this? I’m not keen on so much pastry now, but love quiches and flans. Has anyone any ideas, or has made the above without pastry.
