Shaved Zucchini & Gorgonzola Tart

 

There is literally nothing easier than throwing something on a sheet of puff pastry when you have guests over at the last minute. I always keep a box in my freezer for those desperate times. In this recipe I’ve used a spread of tangy gorgonzola with shaved zucchini, a hint of sage adds an earthy kick. This little video shows the process of making this super simple tart, I hope you enjoy it!

Recipe

  • 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (200 grams) gorgonzola cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbs fresh sage, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt + extra for sprinkling
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 medium sized zucchini, shaved into thin strips with a peeler
  • handful of cherry tomatoes,
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • thyme sprigs (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400F/204C. Unfold the puff pastry sheet and if necessary roll out into a rectangle shape. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

In a bowl whisk together the eggs, gorgonzola, heavy cream, sage, salt & pepper till combined.

Spread the cheese mixture over the puff pastry sheet evenly. Gently place a layer of shaved zucchini on top overlapping one another. Place the whole cherry tomatoes scattered on top of the zucchini and drizzle with the olive oil. Top with a few thyme sprigs.

Bake the tart for 20 minutes until golden brown.
