Goats Cheese and Tomato Tart

Here’s a recipe I have tried recently that’s really simple and quick to make, and really delicious! I came across a similar recipe for this Goats Cheese & Tomato Tart on the Asda website as I fancied giving something a go that I hadn’t made before, to accompany some of the lovely sauerkraut that I have been given from Tummy Tonics. The original recipe used fresh tomatoes, however I had some sun-dried tomatoes in the cupboard so used these instead, which turned out to be a great idea! I also had some green & red pesto’s leftover which I had on the side of the tart and they were delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 500g pack ready-to-roll puff pastry
  • Flour (for rolling out)
  • 1 red onion, chopped finely
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 15g butter
  • 2 tsp chopped thyme leaves, plus some for garnish
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 200g drained and chopped sun-dried tomatoes (or 220g of baby tomatoes, halved)
  • 100g goats cheese, chopped.

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 220c/Gas 7
  2. Roll the pastry out to the thickness of a pound coin and cut 4 rounds using a saucer or something similar as a guide. Put the rounds of pastry on a baking tray an using the point of a knife, mark a rim round the edge of each tart (take care not to cut right through). Chill for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Heat the oil and the butter then cook the onion until soft. Add the thyme and vinegar, and simmer until evaporated. Leave to cool.
  4. Divide the onion between the pastry cases, spreading it inside the marked rims. Top with the tomatoes and goats cheese pieces.
  5. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until the pastry is golden. Garnish with thyme leaves and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy your tart with sides of your choice. I enjoyed mine with a handful of fresh rocket, and some Beetroot, Fennel & Orange Sauerkraut as well as some pesto 😊
