Step by step recipe:

    Line your tin or mould with puff pastry, taking care to keep the edge in contact with the tin.

    This is much easier if the pastry is very cold, just out of the fridge.

    Prick all over the surface with a fork or a pique-vite, to prevent from bubbling when cooking.

    Fold over the edges. If you aren't going to fill it now, put back in the fridge.

    Peel 2 tomatoes and slice.

    Peel and cook 2 potatoes, then slice.

    Peel and cook 200 g broad beans as for the recipe broad bean and almond salad.

    In the centre of the second puff pastry circle, make a 1 cm diameter hole. This forms the chimney to let out the steam during cooking.

    You can then trim off the excess pastry, or fold it back under the edge as in the photo.

    Note : it's neater, and easier to remove from the tin, if you cut off the excess.

    It needs about 30 minutes cooking. Take care that the bottom of pie is well browned.

    Best served warm.

Remarks:

You can make this pie with other vegetables. If so try to keep the potatoes as the bottom layer because it's this layer which soaks up any juice from the other vegetables.

You can also add herbs and/or a dash of olive oil with herbs.

If you find that 100% vegetables tastes a bit bland, you can add 2 or 3 tablespoons of grilled bacon to the beans.
