Potato-Rösti Vegetable Bake

This is an easy vegetarian bake for weekday dinners and needs only a salad to accompany it. Serves 6 hungry adults.

Potato crust:
600g potato, unpeeled
5ml garlic salt
40ml flour
1 egg

2 onions
250g mushrooms
250g zucchini
250g cheddar cheese
4 eggs
125ml cream
5ml salt
5ml mustard

For the potato crust:
Preheat your oven to 180℃ and grease a loose-bottomed cake tin.
Spread a clean tea towel onto a work surface and grate the potato directly onto it, with the skin on.
Fold the towel over the potato, gathering all ends together and twist and squeeze the potato over your kitchen sink until all the excess moisture has been removed. Put the potato into a mixing bowl.
Sprinkle the garlic salt and flour over the grated potato and mix through with your hands in order to distribute all ingredients as evenly as possible.
Now add the egg and mix in the same way.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared cake tin and press it tightly into the base and sides of the tin with the back of a spoon.
Place the cake tin on a flat baking sheet and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and set aside.

For the filling:
Put a frying pan on to medium heat and add some oil to it.
Slice the onions and fry them until soft and translucent. Spoon the onion into a large mixing bowl.
Turn the heat up to high, slice the mushrooms and add them to the hot pan. Cook until caramelised. Spoon into the bowl with the onion.
Grate the zucchini and cheese directly into the mixing bowl with the onion and mushroom. Mix together.
Spoon the vegetable-cheese mixture in to the potato crust. Set aside.
Add the eggs, cream, salt and mustard to a mixing bowl and whisk together. Gently pour over the vegetable mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, until golden and set.
Remove from the oven and stand in the baking tin for 30 minutes.
Slice and serve warm.
