Recipe of the Week – 25th January 2016 – Mediterranean Vegetable Tarts

  
Even at this time of the year I sometimes feel like something a bit lighter to eat, as much as I like stodgy comfort food! This is a nice simple recipe which can be adapted to include your favourite vegetables.

Makes 6 

Ingredients

1 pack ready-rolled puff pastry, defrosted at room temperature for 2 hours if frozen

1 large courgette, thickly sliced

1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced

1 tin of good quality chopped tomatoes

2 cloves of garlic

1 tsp Herbes de Provence

50g mature cheddar cheese, grated

3 tbs extra virgin olive oil

20ml milk

Salt and pepper to season

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C.

2. Unroll the pastry and cut into 6 equal squares. Lightly score a square approximately 1cm within each square.

3. In a blender mix together the tomatoes, garlic, herbs and salt and pepper until it is a paste. Brush onto the middle of each square of pastry.

4. Add a layer of courgette and pepper slices to the middle of each square, ensuring to keep within the score-lines.

5. Top with the cheese and brush the milk around the perimeter.

6. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve hot or cold with a salad.
