These pictures are making me hungry. Is that wrong? I feel a bit odd looking at my own photography while thinking, “damn I want to eat that!”  I'll blame my empty belly and the fact that this goat cheese and tomato tart is no longer in my fridge.

What to serve with this tomato tart recipe

When I serve this I often keep the menu very simple. A thick slice of this tart beside an arugula salad makes the perfect brunch or light dinner. But it's also lovely with a bigger meal. Here are a few recipes that I think go well with this tomato tart:

How to prevent a soggy pie crust

When I make this tomato tart, I always give the tomato slices a gentle squeeze to remove most of the liquid. I find that when I do this, the bottom of my pie crust never gets soggy.

It's also important to evenly spread the cheese mixture over the entire bottom of the pie. This will help create a barrier between the crust and the juicy tomatoes.

Another option (but one I haven't listed in the instructions as it's not one I use) is to blind bake the pie crust. This means that you partially bake the pie crust before adding the filling. To do this:

  1. Place parchment paper over the pie crust and fill the pie with pie weights or dry bean/ rice.
  2. Bake the pie for 15 minutes.
  3. Remove the pie from the oven then add your filling.

Description

This Goat Cheese and Tomato Tart with Rosemary and Mascarpone is an easy to make recipe that should be on everyone's summer menu.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 homemade or store-bought pie crust
  • 56 medium tomatoes, sliced thick and squeezed gently to remove most of the pulp and seeds
  • 1/2 cup each: goat cheese and mascarpone
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a 9″ pie pan with the pie crust. Let the edges drape down the outside of the pie pan a little for a more rustic look. Use a fork to poke a few holes in the bottom of the crust.
  3. In a small bowl mix goat cheese, mascarpone, rosemary, sea salt, and lemon zest. Spread this over the bottom of the pie.
  4. Layer the tomato slices over the cheese mixture until the pie is completely full. Sprinkle with a little sea salt on top.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until crust is light brown and tomatoes are soft. If the crust is browning too quickly, cover with a piece of aluminum foil.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 1 hour.
