Ingredients

 1 tbs oil

 1 leek, thinly sliced

 2 cloves garlic, crushed

 1 zucchini, grated

  ¼ medium cauliflower, cut into small florets

 75g blue cheese, crumbled

 Salad greens, for serving

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frypan and sauté leek, garlic and zucchini for two minutes.
  2. Add the cauliflower and continue cooking until just tender. Whisk the eggs, philly, thyme and pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Add the cooked vegetables and stir until well combined. Pour into a greased 24cm round ovenproof baking dish then crumble over the blue cheese. Cover with foil.
  4. Bake in a moderate oven 180°C for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake for a further 10-15 minutes or until set and golden.
