Roasted Beetroot And Goats Cheese Tart

Posted 2015-05-23 by Annalisa Brownfollow
I was fortunate to receive a large bag of home grown beetroot recently and my mind instantly catapulted with all the possible beetroot dishes I could cook over the course of a weekend.

Firstly however, was the task of roasting all the beetroots; then the fun really began with the concoction of beetroot recipes. One of the dishes included a quick and easy tart of Roasted Beetroot and Goats Cheese topped with walnuts and a liberal drizzle of Balsamic Glaze .

This is a great little tart that can be eaten hot or cold and is perfect for a picnic. Cut into bite size pieces and you could serve the tart as an hors d'oeuvre or as finger food at your next party. Or, do as I did and serve as a main meal paired with a bottle of tempranillo.

Roasted Beetroot and Goats Cheese Tart can be enjoyed any time of the year, particularly as beetroots can now be bought all year round.

Preparation Time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes (doesn't include time roasting the beetroots)
Makes: 2 main servings

1 Sheet Frozen Puff Pastry
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Roasted Beetroot
75g Goats Cheese
1 Tablespoon Walnuts

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC.

  • Thaw one sheet of frozen puff pastry.

  • Line a tray with a baking sheet and place the puff pastry onto the baking sheet.

  • Prick the puff pastry all over with a fork.

  • Prick the puff pastry with a fork then bake for approximately 1015 minutes before adding the tart fillings.

  • Place the pastry into the oven for approximately 10-15 minutes.

  • Remove the puff pastry from the oven (the pastry will rise slightly).

  • Roughly chop the roasted beetroot into wedges.

  • Freshly roasted beetroot adds a sweet and earthy taste to the tart.

  • Fill the tart with the beetroot wedges and crumble the goat’s cheese over the top of the beetroot.

  • Season with salt, black pepper and crushed walnuts and drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil and balsamic glaze.

  • Notes
    I used Borg’s Frozen Puff Pastry as it is dairy free and vegan friendly.
