DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Top and tail the zucchini, then slice them thinly.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan.
  • Add the zucchini and cook for a few minutes, turning them over at least once, until they are soft and beginning to brown.
  • Using a slotted spoon, transfer them to a bowl.
  • Slice the onion and add it to the oil remaining in the pan, with most of the jalapeño strips, reserving some for the garnish.
  • Fry until the onions have softened and are golden.
  • Using a slotted spoon, add the onions and jalapeños to the zucchini.
  • Beat the eggs in a large bowl, add the self raising flour, cheese and cayenne.
  • Mix well, then stir in the zucchini mixture, with salt to taste.
  • Grease a 9-inch round shallow ovenproof dish with the butter.
  • Pour in the zucchini mixture and bake for 30 minutes until risen, firm to the touch and golden.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Serve the zucchini torte in thick wedges, garnished with the remaining jalapeño strips.
  • A tomato salad, sprinkled with chives, makes a colourful accompaniment.
