1 sheet frozen shortcrust pastry, defrosted

2 tablespoons butter
1 cup peeled and cubed sweet potato
2 zucchini, cubed
1 bunch broccolini, trimmed, cut into 2cm lengths

2 eggs
125ml (1/2 cup) double cream

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan-forced). Line a 23cm tart tin with the pastry and trim. Cover the pastry with baking paper and fill with dried beans, uncooked rice or pastry weights then cook in the preheated oven for 15 minutes,
2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and butter in a frying pan over high heat. When sizzling, add the sweet potato and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the zucchini and broccolini and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Spoon the vegetables over the baked pastry, then top with the olives.
