A simple tomato tart recipe made with flaky puff pastry sheets covered in whipped goat cheese, then layered with the finest heirloom tomatoes and fresh herbs.
A sheet of store bought puff pastry, a creamy goat cheese that I whipped in my food processor with a little olive oil, plus freshly picked heirloom tomatoes and herbs.
Seriously, the easiest tomato tart recipe you will ever make!
I beg to argue it s also the best, but hey I might be a little partial so don’t take my word for it, make it yourself.
You could even make individual, mini tiny tarts as appetizers if you prefer, or just cut it into bite size pieces for fabulous entertaining!
