With a delicious scone base, a layer of Plum and Tamarillo Chutney, and topped with cheesy roast vegetables, this dish is a delight. Serve it warm straight from the oven with a side salad and extra chutney. Or dip it into soup, or pop it into lunchboxes.
First you roast your vegetables in the oven and while they are in the oven. Make your scone base.
This is a simple scone recipe which has both cheese and herbs added.
Once the vegetables are roasted and the scone mix is made, you are ready to make your slice.
Start with your scone mix, then a layer of chutney and top with the roast vegetables, and then cheese.
Bake until golden.
What Herbs can I use? I have used chives, but spring onions are great or some parsley would also work well.
What shall I serve it with? Extra relish on the side is lovely, and it goes perfectly with a green side salad.
Can I swap the vegetables? Absolutely, you could use potatoes, tomatoes, kumara, beetroot, or pumpkin.
