Prep Time

15 minutes

Cooking Time

30 minutes




  1. Preheat your oven to 180c 
  2. Peel the carrot and cut the skin off the pumpkin.  Using a sharp knife or mandolin, cut the vegetables into thin slices* 
  3. Line a baking dish (preferably porcelain) with baking paper.  Alternatively you can grease it with butter for a much richer result 
  4. Place one layer of each vegetable in the dish 
  5. Once the first layer is complete, top with tasty cheese 
  6. Repeat layering the vegetables and cheese leaving approximately 1 inch from the top of the dish 
  7. Beat the eggs and milk until combined and season with sea salt and pepper 
  8. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables ensuring they are completely covered 
  9. Top with more tasty cheese and sprinkle grated parmesan to finish 
  10. Bake for approx. 30 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly before serving 

*Thinner slices ensure the crisper vegetable like carrot and pumpkin will soften during the baking process
