Tomato, spinach and roasted garlic tart with goat’s cheese
- Roll of readymade short crust pastry
- 200 ml double cream
- 4 free-range egg yolks
- 200 g Gruyere cheese, grated
- Grating of Ayrshire Bonnet goat’s cheese (or other cheese of your choice)
- Sprinkling of sea salt
- Black pepper
- 200g Scotty Brand tomatoes
- 1/2 small bunch chives, chopped finely
- 100g spinach
- 1 red onion
- 3 cloves garlic, oven roasted
- Preheat your oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4. Carefully line an 8-inch pasty dish with the ready made shortcrust pastry and place in the fridge to chill for half an hour. Pastry is easy to make, but we love this as a quick midweek supper, and usually don’t have the energy to make pastry!
- Loosely fold the cloves of garlic with a bit of sea salt and oil in some tin foil and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
- Line the tart with baking paper, fill with rice or baking beans and bake blind for 10-12 minutes.
- Gently fry sliced onion and three quarters of your sliced baby tomatoes until softened. Set aside and allow to cool.
- Whip double cream with chopped chives, grated gruyere, eggs, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
- Take the pastry out the oven and lift out the baking paper and beans/rice.
- Pop the pastry case back in the oven for 10 minutes until just cooked. Remove and leave to cool slightly.
- Place the spinach in a colander in the sink and top with boiling water. Allow to cool slightly and squeeze out the remaining water. Loosen the leaves with your fingers and mix with the onion and tomato mixture.
- Remove the garlic from the oven, crush and mix with tomato, onion and spinach mix. Spread over the bottom of the tart shell.
- Pour the egg and cream mixture gently on top. Gently top tart with grated Bonnet cheese (or other goat's cheese) and the remainder of the sliced (uncooked) tomatoes. Place in oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the middle of the tart is just set.
- Remove and leave to cool slightly before serving.
