Ingredients

  • Flour, for dusting
  • 300g shortcrust pastry
  • 8 plum tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp muscovado sugar or balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 150g creamy mild goat’s cheese flavoured with herbs and garlic (we like Sainsbury’s French Goats’ Cheese with Garlic and Herbs)
  • 200g pot low-fat crème fraîche
  • 1 tbsp pine nuts, toasted

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Place a 23cm round x 3cm deep fluted tart tin on a baking tray. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry to a circle about 4cm wider than the tin. Carefully lift the pastry into the tin and gently press into the base and sides, taking care not to stretch the pastry. Trim any excess pastry and prick the base with a fork. Chill for 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, put the tomatoes cut-side up in a roasting tin. Drizzle with the oil, sugar or vinegar and most of the thyme. Season. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes, until just wilted.
  3. Put a sheet of baking paper on top of the pastry case scrunching in the edges to fit. Fill with rice and bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove the rice and paper and bake for a further 15 minutes, until golden and crisp. Leave to cool.
  5. Beat the goat’s cheese and crème fraîche together in a bowl until creamy. Season to taste. Spoon evenly into the tart case and arrange the tomatoes (with any cooking juices) over the top. Scatter with the pine nuts and the remaining thyme.
