TOMATO PESTO TART
This is a ‘lazy’ recipe as you can buy good quality all-butter puff pastry and your favourite pesto and throw it all together with minimal fuss or mess!

TOMATO PESTO TART

Servings: 8

Ingredients

500g prepared puff pastry
1 egg, lightly beaten
125g basil pesto, homemade or store-bought
600g plum tomatoes, thickly sliced OR cherry tomatoes, halved
NOMU Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tsp caster sugar
NOMU Sea Salt
½ tsp NOMU Spanish RUB (optional)
½ cup fresh basil leaves
Parmigiano Reggiano

Directions

Preheat the oven to 230°C

Gently roll the puff pastry out into a 30cm x 20cm rectangular shape or any other shape and size you desire. Score a border of about 2cm wide around the whole sheet and lightly prick the centre all over with a fork.

Brush the border of the pastry with the beaten egg. Generously spread the pesto over the middle of the tart, keeping within the border, and arrange the tomatoes in rows overlapping each other.

Drizzle with Olive Oil and sprinkle with caster sugar. Season with Sea Salt and NOMU Spanish RUB (if you’d like a bit of heat) and place in the hot oven for 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden, puffed, and crisp. Scatter with fresh basil leaves and shavings of Parmigiano Reggiano and serve hot or at room temperature.

Tip: When brushing the border with egg wash, take care not to allow the glaze to drip down the sides as this will ‘glue’ the layers of puff together and they will rise nicely.
