A fail-safe recipe that will bring the flavors and colors of the Mediterranean to your table in a little longer than one hour! Vegetarian and dairy-free.

Ingredients

Mediterranean cake ingredients200 gr (7 oz)  flour
200 gr (7 oz) sun-dried tomatoes (drained weight)
100 gr (3.5 oz) extra-firm tofu
50 gr (1.8 oz) pitted olives (drained weight)
3 eggs
10 cl (3.5 oz, a glass) soy milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
3-4 basil leaves
1 sachet (7 gr, 1/4 oz) yeast for hand baking
salt and pepper

Notes: You can use smoked or flavored tofu (I used sun-dried tomatoes-flavored tofu) but do not use silken tofu – it would be impossible to grate! If you are not vegan or milk-intolerant you can use gruyere cheese instead of tofu and substitute soy milk with cow milk.

You will also need: A small rectangular baking tin, about 23 x 13 cm (9 x 5 inches)
