Do you have an over-ubundance of tomatoes? Well here is a recipe to use them all up that is not only easy but exceedingly delicious as well. Use whatever type of tomatoes you like or that are available. I used egg tomatoes but you could use these beautiful heirloom tomatoes in the feature image. So pretty with their variety of colours and shapes. Here’s what to do…

Take a tart tin with a removable bottom. I chose one with a sweet fluted edge.

Line the tin with puff pastry. I used frozen.

Take your tomatoes…

and de-seed them…

Take some garlic and a red onion…

Slice the red onion…

Peel and finely chop the garlic…

Next, you will need a tub of spreadable goat’s cheese…

Dollop the goat’s cheese onto the pastry…

Spread evenly over the pastry until the base is covered…

Sprinkle over some of the garlic…

Top with some of the sliced red onion…

 

 

Arrange the sliced tomatoes…

Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Grate on some fresh black pepper and sea salt…

Bake in a pre-heated 180 degrees C oven for 45 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and the tomatoes are slightly charred on the edges…

Slice and serve with crisp salad. So easy…so quick…so delicious!
