Carrot Tart Recipe

Ingredients

  • 5 carrots
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon thyme dried
  • 1 sheet puff pastry (I used a frozen sheet)
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • ½ cup shredded cheese of choice (I used vegan cheese)
  • Coconut oil spray
  • Basil or baby spinach leaves to garnish

 

Method

  1. Firstly, preheat oven to 195°C.
  2. Then start by peeling the carrots and halve each of them lengthwise.
  3. Place the carrots on a lined baking tray and sprinkle the spices over them. Add the extra virgin olive oil and mix together to coat the carrots thoroughly.
  4. Next, pop the tray in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until the carrots are just tender. Timing will depend upon the thickness of the carrots.
  5. In the meantime, defrost a sheet of puff pastry on a lined baking tray. Fold in the edges of the sheet about 1cm on all four sides.
  6. Spread the dijon mustard over the sheet of puff pastry inside the border then top evenly with the shredded cheese of choice.
  7. Place the carrots over the top, side by side, filling in the tart. Give the tart a light spray all over with coconut oil.
  8. Increase the oven temperature to 200°C fan forced (or 210°C) and place the tart in the oven.
  9. Cook for around 15 minutes until the pastry is nice and golden and the carrots are beautifully caramelised and sweet.
  10. Finally, garnish with baby spinach or basil leaves.

Hope you enjoy this yummy carrot tart with your friends and family. Have a wonderful Easter!
