Pulse the flour, herbs and butter in a food processor until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Whisk the egg yolk and water together and add to the mixture.
Process until the dough just starts to come together.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead into a ball.

Grease a 23 cm tart tin and roll out the pastry with a 5 mm thickness.
Line the base and sides of the tart tin with pastry.

Combine the butternut, spring onions, feta, cheddar cheese and chilli and spoon into the pastry case.
Whisk the remaining ingredients together and pour over the filling.
