  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C and place a 25cm tart tin on a baking tray. Roll out the pastry to fit the tin (you will need to cut a 5-10cm slice from the end and press this onto the longer side of the pastry rectangle to create more of a square shape to fit the tin). Dab on a little water or milk with your finger to seal the pastry edges.
  2. Press the pastry into the tin, leaving the sides overhanging. Cover with baking paper, fill with baking beans or rice, then bake for 10 mins. Remove the paper and beans, trim the edges of the pastry, then return to the oven for 7-8 mins until the pastry is cooked.
  3. Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the milk in a large bowl. Blanch the frozen peas and broad beans in boiling water, then drain well, run under cold water and drain again. Stir into the egg mixture with the watercress or spinach, spring onions and dill. Pour into the pastry base, then top with the cheese and walnuts, if using.
  4. Reduce the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C, and bake for 30-35 mins more until golden brown and cooked through. Serve warm or at room temperature, with a crisp green salad, if you like. Will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge.

Tip: Swap the watercress or fresh spinach for frozen spinach. Defrost, then squeeze extra moisture out and use as stated in method above.
