BAKED VEGETABLE CAKE RECIPE
I recently asked on my Facebook page what I would like to cook. The ideas were diverse. But a “cookbook” on the channel suggested that I prepare a different way of making vegetables for her daughters. So, I got down to business and recorded this Baked Veggie Pie. The video, you have it at the end of this article, as always. Preparing this vegetable cake is a simple thing, with not many ingredients. And you can change the vegetables according to your taste or the season of the year. A very rich version is the following:
INGREDIENTS FOR 4 PEOPLE:
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 onion
- 250ml of cooking cream (heavy cream)
- 1 red pepper
- 2 carrots
- 150g peas
- 150g green beans
- Salt and pepper
MAKE THE VEGETABLE CAKE IN THE MICROWAVE OVEN:
1.- Cook the peas and green beans. To do this, we cook plenty of water in a pot and add a pinch of salt. When it is boiling, add both ingredients and cook for 10 minutes. After a time, we drain them from the water and let them rest
2.- Meanwhile, we put a splash of oil to heat over low heat. We first add the carrot cut into cubes. Add a pinch of salt and cook for 5 minutes, while stirring with a wooden spoon
3.- After a time we add the onion and the red pepper also in cubes. We add this vegetable later because the carrot is much tougher. Season and cook for another 10 minutes, while stirring from time to time.
4.- All this done, we put the eggs in a bowl. We add its part of salt and pepper and beat. Then we add the cream to cook and mix with the eggs. Once this is done, we add all the vegetables, which will not be too hot, so that the egg does not curdle and we mix again.
5.- We put this mixture in a mold. One with which you make your cakes will be enough. If it is silicone better. If it is metallic it will also work but do not forget to smear it with oil so that it does not stick later
6.- Finally we put in the oven previously heated to 160ºC. Let cook here for about 45 minutes, until you can put a knife in and it comes out clean
A very easy baked vegetable cake. Once it’s done, don’t forget to let it rest for at least 10 minutes before eating it. And don’t forget that you can customize the vegetables to your liking!
