Goat’s Cheese & Tomato Tart

This was my first attempt at making a tart- and it tasted
pretty good even if I do say so myself. I found this recipe in one
of my files- I had torn it out of a Good Homes magazine from May
2007, and thought I would give it a whirl. I found it easy to
follow, easy to make, and it tasted delicious. I used big beef
tomatoes, and found I didn’t actually use the whole 500g but that’s
up to personal preference. I used a 20cm cake tin rather than a
baking sheet- but this made it a little too thick so I would
recommend either using a larger cake tin or just a flat tray. Goat's Cheese and Tomato Tart Goat's Cheese and Tomato Tart

  1. Mmmm… it looks delicious and the instrucions don’t look too difficult. I need to learn how to make new dishes, so I’m going to give this one a whirl.

  2. Looks good, Naomi! I’m liking your salad too – are those sunflower seeds? I bet some toasted pine nuts would go a treat in the salad with the tart, too! Nice photos 😉
