Scandi Foodie’s Berry Tart
I loved this dessert, not too sweet and I turned it into individual tarts to bring to work. I also cheated and used frozen dough, but really simple to put together and a great use of frozen berries. Check out the recipe here.
Radish Green and Tomato Tart
Voting is over on Monday - please give me a hand and click this link and like “Spork Me” in the pedestrian.tv Blogster Awards! It takes 10 seconds and will make me very, very happy :)
Saturday there was no food in the cupboard except for 2 eggs, some stale cheese, and two tomatoes. I finally pulled up all the radishes from the garden (although the “radish” bit didn’t grow on most of them) and used the greens to make a quick tart for lunch.
- 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tomatoes, sliced
- a couple handfuls of chopped radish greens, or spinach, or something else green
- Salt and pepper
- 1/2 grated cheese
Roll out the puff pastry so it’s a bit longer, and cut off 1cm on all the sides. Whisk the eggs and milk, and use a bit of that to bind the cut off pieces of pastry and create taller edges (to contain the rest of the egg mixture. Line a baking tray with baking paper, place the pastry on it, and then layer on the greens, line with tomatoes, and pour over the egg mixture. Top with cheese, salt and pepper, and bake at 220C / 400F for 15-20 minutes until it’s golden.
Mushroom and Chive Tart
I kind of randomly found some chives in the fridge, I think I bought them ages ago, but they weren’t in bad shape so I decided to try and use them in a tart base. The color wasn’t particularly appetizing (brown mushroom + green chives = gross) but it tasted quite nice. Might need a bit more cheese so you can’t see it.
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed and cut into 4 squares
- 1 portabello mushroom
- Half a bunch of chives
- 1-2 anchovies
- 1-2 tomatoes, finely sliced
- Grated parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper
Get the oven super hot. Place the pastry on a baking tray and puree the mushroom, chives and anchovy together in a food processor. Spread between the 4 pastry squares, layer on tomatoes and cheese, and season with salt and pepper. Bake for about 20 minutes until golden.
Finnish Apple Tart
I’m kind of obsessed with this blog. I want to eat everything on there, I haven’t seen a single exception. I took a stab at the Finnish apple tart with “poor man’s ingredients” and it was still mind blowing, as well as simple to put together. Instead of the vanilla sauce I mixed a bit of vanilla extract with greek yogurt, and I replaced the organic/spelt/fancy ingredients with regular flours and sugars, and it was just amazing.
In all my hours of watching daytime TV the last few weeks I spotted this recipe that I wanted to try. Very cheap and easy recipe to make on a rainy afternoon!
