  2. Start by lining your tart case with filo pastry, brushing sides and the middle with olive oil
  3. Roast the onions, bell pepper and sweet potatoes with a little salt and pepper. Do not roast them completely as they are going to be cooked in the oven later.
  4. Once done, add the chopped garlic, dill and chilli pepper, mix, and leave to cool down.
  5. Meanwhile, blanche the broccoli by plunging into boiling water and briefly cooking it for a few minutes, then plunge into icy water, drain the water and leave to cool.
