Freshly baked tomato and cheese tart

For a tasty, easy-to-prepare pastry that’s ideal for a quick dinner, or made into smaller portions and served cold for lunch, you can’t ignore our Cheesy Herb Tarts.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 large sheet of shortcrust pastry
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh herbs (eg. tarragon, basil, chives, parsley)
  • 3 tomatoes, halved and seeded (drained on paper towel)
  • 120g crumbled soft goats cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup each of milk and cream

 

Method
Preheat oven to 200°C, grease a tart pan and line with pastry. Top with baking paper and rice, bake for 20 minutes. Remove paper and rice, discard and bake for a further 10 minutes. Cool.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan, add the onion, season and cook (stirring regularly) for 20-23 minutes.  Stir in sugar and vinegar and cook for a further two to three minutes.  Set aside.

Spread onion over the base of the tart. Sprinkle with half the herbs, followed by tomatoes, cheeses and remaining herbs. Whisk eggs, milk and cream together.  Season and pour onto tart.  Bake for 40-45 minutes.  Leave to cool for 10 minutes before serving.

    This looks like a nice recipe but there is a mistake.....while cooking onion it should read 2-3mins not 20-23mins!

    There are a lot more than 3 tomatoes on there! Also, why "seed" them?

    I'm sure the reason for seeding the tomatoes is because seeds add bitterness to the end product. And yes, there are more than 3 tomatoes, and they look like mini truss, or cherry tomatoes, which I personally wouldn't use because they tend to be tart. Otherwise, it looks a very tasty recipe to trot out for a Sunday brunch, or whatever.
