    • Line the chilled pastry case with baking paper, fill with ceramic baking beans or uncooked rice.
    • Blind bake in the oven for 10–15 minutes.
    • Remove the paper and beans, then bake for a further 5–8 minutes until golden.
    • Trim the excess pastry with a sharp knife
    • To the TMX bowl, add the eggs, cream, cream cheese, salt and pepper on 10 secs/speed 6.
    • To the frypan, add a knob of butter and heat till just nutty brown then quickly toss in the sage
    • Remove from the heat as soon as the sage has crinkled up
    • Into the pastry case, spread the pumpkin, sage (keep a couple of pretty ones aside), feta and flake in the trout using your fingers
