Tomato Tarte Tatin

Summer is still hot and the weekend is finally here! My fridge is full of Cherry Tomatoes and I’m never short of goat cheese. Yesterday I prepared my puff pastry and early this morning I prepared this yummy Tomato Tarte Tatin, not only for my family but also for Fiesta Friday #84. Tarte Tatin are usually sweet, however, it can also make a perfect salty tart!

Huge thanks to our amazing host, Angie from The Novice Gardener, and to our co-host’s this week Effie @ Food Daydreaming and Steffi @ Ginger & Bread.

Serves: 6 slices

Ingredients: (for the crust)

Ingredients: (for the filling)

  • 500g of cherry tomatoes
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of dry thyme
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of lavender honeyPicMonkey Collage
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C degrees.
  2. Grease a removable rectangular tart pan (for me) and set aside.
  3. In a large pan add 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  4. Add the cherry tomatoes, the salt, the black pepper, the thyme and the honey.
  5. Cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  7. Flour a clean surface.
  8. With a rolling pin, flatten the dough the size of your tart pan (add an extra 1 centimeter to tuck in the edges).
  9. Place into the bottom of your tart pan the cherry tomatoes (don’t leave space between them).
  10. Cover the cherry tomatoes with the puff pastry and tuck in the edges.
  11. Poke the top of the dough with a wooden stick (instead of a fork).
  12. Transfer the tart pan on a large deep baking tray (because when you cook, the tomato juice will fall).
  13. Bake for 45 minutes (more or less depending on the oven).
  14. Remove from the oven when the crust is golden brown.

Serve the Tatin with some goat cheese and a drizzle honey on the side. This tarte is sweet, slightly sour and very tasty for brunch or lunch!

Bon Appétit.

    This was my first year gardening in our community garden, and the only thing I planted was a cherry tomato plant. To say that it was bountiful is an understatement 🙂 Tomato tarts are a gorgeous way to enjoy them!

    1. I love gardening too. I think the taste is always good when your vegetables come from your garden. I hope you will enjoy your tomatoes and maybe make a tart! 🙂
