Easy and yummy vegetarian dish.
1. Preheat the oven to 180 ºC. Spread the dough on a baking tray covered with baking paper and prick with a fork.
2. Spread the tomato pesto onto the dough and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
3. Wash the vegetables and chop into 1.5 cm dice. Fry the aubergines for 6 minutes in hot olive oil, then add the courgettes and fry for another 5 minutes. Pour into a bowl and mix with the chopped tomatoes, season with sea salt and leave to cool for a while.
4. Mix the flan ingredients thoroughly.
5. Spread the vegetable mixture over the dough and pour the flan mixture on top.
6. Cook the quiche in the oven for 35-49 minutes. Leave to cool for 10 minutes and serve.
