"This is really good for a light vegetarian supper/brunch accompanied with spinach salad and fruit. This recipe also makes good use of the food processor which I used for grating the cheese and the carrots. Recipe source: Saveur (April 2004)"

Tips & Variations

I scaled this back for 1 serve using 2 eggs and fudging the amount of the other ingredients and made in a small sauté pan and baked for 20 minutes but maybe 15 would have been better as I couldn't give it as much time as I would have liked under the grill/broiler or they would have become tough, as was I thoroughly enjoyed as a light lunch. Thank you ellie, made for Alphabet Soup game.
