Tomato and Goat’s Cheese Tart
- 400g tomatoes, sliced
- 1 red onion, peeled and cut through the root into 8 wedges
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Good pinch of granulated or caster sugar
- 500g ready-rolled all-butter puff pastry (or roll out a block of puff pastry to a thickness of about 4mm/1/8 in)
- 75g soft goat’s cheese
- 2 tbsp pesto
Preheat the oven to 220°C (gas mark 7).
Place the tomato slices and onion wedges in a bowl, then add the olive oil, gently stir together and season with salt and pepper and the sugar. Trim the pastry into a 25-30cm (10-12in) rectangle and transfer to a baking sheet.
Arrange the tomato and onion on the pastry and rows, leaving a 1cm (1/2in) border all the way round, then dot spoonfuls of the goat’s cheese at regular intervals on top of the tomatoes and onion.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is golden and the tomatoes cooked through and bubbling hot. Remove from the oven and drizzle with the pesto, then serve immediately.
