This lovely creamy tart is not just delicious but also enjoyable to make. You can buy premade shortcrust pastry and use it for this recipe but sometimes it’s nice to slow down and take the time to make your own. You will notice the difference in taste and texture and my kids like to get involved in the pastry making process too. Home made pastry is a lot easier to make than you think.

Creamy Goats Cheese Tart Recipe

This delicious tart is made up of a base of cream and eggs with herbs, goats cheese and vegetables. It has a delicious creamy texture and is enjoyable with a fresh salad or some roasted Summer vegetables. You can enjoy it hot or cold served up with your favourite salad dressing.

I have used a lovely creamy goats cheese in this recipe but you can also make this tart with another cheese of your choice. Cheddar cheese works well and if using chutney you could try a branston pickle as an option too. You can also use some sliced goats cheese log or some feta cheese. If you want to add a little additional protein maybe some shredded chicken breast or smoked salmon would work well too.

Tips for making this delicious Creamy Goats Cheese & Vegetable Tart

If you want to save time you can use a premade store bought shortcrust pastry. I would recommend making your own as it doesn’t take as long as you might think but if your really short on time it is an option available for you.

The fundamental elements of this tart are the pastry and the creamy filling ingredients. You can mix and match the vegetables and cheese type to suit your own preferences and seasonal availability. A few different options that I would make are cheddar cheese and onion with branston pickle, smoked salmon and asparagus with beetroot chutney, smoked haddock with onion and hard goats cheese with your choice of vegetables.

The tart is delicious warm served with fresh salad and a light dressing or some roasted Summer vegetables but you can also serve it chilled too. If taking it on a picnic I would recommend chilling it completely as it will travel better once chilled. Serve with some crusty bread and butter and a wee picnic pudding.
