Nothing like a freshly-baked open tart
May 28, 2012 in Cooking with Woolies
I found the most delicious and adorable selection of open tarts at Woolworths the other day. They’re perfect for a lazy Saturday lunch with friends, and just as easy to heat up and serve after a long day at the office.
I went for the 600g Mediterranean open tart that comes with its own little sachet of pesto. All you do is place the tart in the oven for about 20 minutes until heated through and golden, then drizzle with a little pesto and serve. I also love the individual wild mushroom, leek and Gruyere cheese tarts and the chorizo tarts with caramelised onion and wild mushroom, each sold in a box containing two 115 g tartlets. The flaky pastry is deliciously crisp and the large tarts easily feed up to six people.
These tarts are a great accompaniment to a garlicky cauliflower soup, or simply served with a salad of roasted beets. To make mix wedges of roasted beetroot with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Season to taste, add soft goat’s-milk cheese and tufts of rocket and drizzle with olive oil. If you like, scatter with roasted pumpkin seeds.
I hope you enjoy my find of the week!
