  1. Put all the ingredients for the shortcrust pastry into the blender jug and, with the measuring beaker in place, knead with the knead button/2 minutes.
  2. Remove the pastry from the blender jug, roll into a ball and chill for 30 minutes. Clean the blender jug.
  3. Remove the rind from the Comté, cut into 3-cm pieces and place in the blender jug. With the measuring beaker in place, chop for 8 seconds/speed setting 8. Then decant the cheese.
  4. Put the goat’s cheese and egg into the blender jug. Wash the thyme, shake dry and remove the leaves from the stalks. Put the thyme, mustard, ½ teaspoon of salt and 3 pinches of pepper into the blender jug and, with the measuring beaker in place, mix for 10 seconds/speed setting 4.
  5. Pre-heat the oven to 200 °C. Trim, wash and pat dry the courgettes and tomatoes. Cut the courgettes into thin 5-mm slices. Remove the core from the tomatoes and cut the flesh into 5-mm slices.
  6. Roll the pastry out thinly on a floured work surface and place in the greased flan dish. Trim off the projecting edge.
  7. Arrange the slices of vegetables in a fan shape on the pastry and pour the egg and cheese mixture on top. Then sprinkle with the cheese and bake the pre-heated oven for 35 minutes.



The flan tastes best when warm, but can also be eaten cold.
