Goaty tart

A Damascene moment?

A Damascus moment?

As far as I’m concerned, the jury’s still out on goat’s cheese, by which I mean those little logs that turn up on cheese boards and stick to the roof of your mouth when you eat them. Well someone gave me a couple the other day and they lurked in the fridge for a while but then I wanted to make a little something to fill some hungry folk before dinner itself was ready, and decided to use the one of them. So I rolled out leftover puff pastry, mashed up the goat’s cheese, skin and all, with a bit of leftover Stilton, a little cream cheese to loosen it, put in a dollop of salsa verde and spread it on the pastry. Then I topped that with halved plum tomatoes and shoved it in the oven for 15 minutes eh voila!  a really pretty tart with a very nice flavour. Not precisely a Damascus moment, but a small revelation at least!

Goaty tart

  • 1/2 pkt ready rolled puff pastry
  • 1 small goat’s cheese log
  • 50g Stilton
  • 100g half fat cream cheese
  • 1 dsp salsa verde or pesto
  • 6-8 baby plum tomatoes, halved

Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Lay out the pastry and cut a line all round it about 2cm in from the edge. Mash up the cheeses with the salsa verde and spread over the pastry. Top with sliced tomatoes and sprinkle with pepper. Cook for about 15 minutes until the pastry is well risen and golden and the topping bubbling nicely. Scatter torn basil leaves over it and serve.
