  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Unroll the pastry, place in a tart dish, prick the surface with a fork and bake blind for 15 minutes until just firm to the touch.
  • Leave pastry to cool and reduce the heating of the oven to 180C. Cut the broccoli into florets (if you use frozen, you don't need to do that) and steam or boil until just tender. Cut the blue cheese into small cubes.
  • Arrange the brocoli and the blue cheese on the pastry. Sprinkle the pine nuts on top. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the cream and the (optional) grated cheese.
  • Pour over the broccoli in the pastry. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until set and brown. Serve with salad and bon appetit!
