Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. Put the vegetables into a roasting pan, sprinkle with olive oil and toss to mix. Roast for 20 minutes. Cool.
  2. Meanwhile, make the pastry. Put the flour and salt into a large bowl. Rub in the shortening to make crumbs. Stir in the Cheddar, then add 2 tbsp of beaten egg and just enough chilled water to make a soft, but not sticky, dough.  Knead lightly until smooth, then wrap and chill for 10 minutes.
  3. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface, into a 30cm (12in) circle. Transfer to a baking sheet (the pastry may overlap the sheet), and brush with beaten egg.
  4. Pile vegetables onto the pastry, leaving a 7.5cm (3in) border.  Sprinkle Brie on top, then fold the pastry edge over the vegetables; overlapping and sealing to make
    a free-form tart. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, until crisp and golden. 
    Serve warm or cold.
